Canada in 2035
Will Canada be the Greatest country to live in come 2035?
In this project I will analyze if Canada will be the best country to live in 2035. What changes will the population have to birth/death rate immigration rate, etc? How will we Interactions in the Physical Environment, will we help it or keep polluting it? Will we manage Canada's resources and Industries better and at a more sustainable rate? How will the livable communities improve or change? These are some of the questions I will be looking answering for my final conclusion.
Canada's Current population has more than 35,540,400. The current population growth rates are 1070 births and 575 deaths per day gives us a natural increase of 495. We gain 610 immigrants, and 135 emigrants per day this give us a Net Migration of 475, Our population growth is 970 per day. Currently in 2014-2015 we have 1 400 685 FNMI the percent of FNMI is 61% of aboriginals, 32% Metis, 4% Inuit, 3% other first nations in Canada.
I think 2035 will be very different in Canada. Let start off with Immigration. In 2035 I think the immigration is going to have a major decrease because a lot of other country's will be developed so the immigrants will be evenly disturbed between the world. I also think this because many country's are going to be developed I think Canada will birth rate making up most of the population. I think the FNMI/Natives will leave and spread out because lots of country's will be developed and that would decrease our population but birth rate and development in technology would help and improve life expectancy.
Interactions in the Physical Environment
Canada has a diverse climate ranging from perma-frost in the north in to four season climate in regions closer to the equator. Climate factors include Altitude, Ocean currents, Wind direction, Latitude. Canada's land formations includes the Cordillera(British Columbia and Yukon, and parts of Alberta and Northwest Territories ), Interior Plains(Extends through the middle of Canada from North to South, covering most of Alberta and Saskatchewan, and some of NWT and Manitoba), Canadian Shield(Covers more than half of Canada, including most of Nunavut, Quebec, Labrador, Ontario, and Manitoba, and a large part of Saskatchewan), Great Lakes–St. Lawrence(South of the Canadian Shield in Ontario and Quebec, smallest landform region in Canada), Appalachian(Covers some of southern Quebec, and most of the Maritime Provinces), and Arctic(A series of islands located in Canada’s far north). Western Cordillera have ranges of high, sharp-peaked mountains separated by plateaus and valleys, running North to South, created recently by the collision of the North American and Pacific plates. Interior Plains have very flat, with deep, fertile soil, created when sediments from the Shield and the Rocky Mountains were deposited in shallow inland seas and compressed into layers of sedimentary rock. Canadian Shield is relatively flat with rounded hills of metamorphic rock, which are actually the roots of ancient mountains. Great Lakes-St.Lawrence Lowlands have Glaciers deposited a huge amount of soil, sand and gravel here, creating a landscape of flat plains with small hills and deep river valleys. Appalachian Mountains have had erosion has rounded the mountains over time, creating a landscape of rolling mountains and hills. Arctic Lowlands are low-lying, barren islands with coastlines ranging from extensive lowlands to cliffs. Vegetation zones such as Arctic Tundra, Low Arctic, High Arctic and Boreal Forest.
In 2035 I think the vegetation zones will be most effected in 2035. Firstly I think the lands maybe used for farm land, expansion of cities, or maybe recreational use. Another reason I think vegetation zones will be most effected is that the land could be used for factories, manufacturers because its father from consumers but accessible to stores. Lastly I think the temperatures will be more extreme because of global warming and climate change.
Managing Canada's Resources & Industries
Canada has many resources that are used by many countries; what are our current resources we have in Canada, how are we using sustainable them, what global connections do they have these are some of the questions I'll be asking. Canada has lots of resources the most popular being oil from the oil sands in Alberta and large forests for wood. The sustainability of these resources and very low the forestry is running out because we cut down forest at a fast rate with giving it time to grow back and giving it time to grow back could take up to 40 years and we can't wait that long for wood, are oil usage is increasing by a lot now that gas prices are drop, other countries such as United states uses a lot of the oil, and oil companies are in high demand similar to forestry people demand the resource now but since oil/fossil fuels are not renewable the can't replenish them selves. Canada's global connections are United States, China, UK, Japan, and Mexico.
In 2035 I think Canada will be connected to world by us importing resources from them. I think we'll import resources because Canada's oil won't be the main source of energy we are going have better renewable energy sources that other countries will have and be producing. I think our most valualbe resource will be ------ because oil will not be the main energy source and thats canadas main resource but I also predict that cutting down forest will still be going on. We can import some resources to keep our resources sustainable.
Urban sprawl is becoming a big problem for Canadian cities causing lots of negative impacts. One of the biggest problems with urban sprawl is the expansion of cities causing development in natural environment. Mississauga is the number one city leading urban sprawl. Urban sprawl is taking up nature, hurting wildlife and using up all the open space. This is an issue because the cities use the environmental land to expand the city to build more houses, apartment/condos buildings, and stores for the citizens in the area. I think Ontario will build more condos/apartments instead of houses to expand places to live in and to save space to have more natural environments and open areas. I also think that living in a apartment/condo will be a more sustainable living style.
In conclusion I find that Canada will be much better in terms of sustainability with resources, controlling urban sprawl, and the population change. We will be importing and export different resources but mainly be using a renewable resources like solar panels and wind mills. I think apartments/condos will be key to fixing urban sprawl because it uses less land space and avoids using natural environment. I think our population will be grown by birth rate, and the FMNI will spread out evenly around the world and our immigration rate would decrease. I think Canada will be the greatest country to live in come 2035.
