Canada in 2035

Canada in the Future

This assignment is about answering the question," Will Canada be the best country to live in in 2035?" The reader will learn about the immigration, and First Nations of Canada. They will also learn about the population of Canada as a whole. The reader will learn about physical interactions in Canada, like climate and physical regions of Canada. They will learn about resource management in Canada, and making sustainable cities in Canada. They will learn about urban sprawl, and just issues in general about cities.

Changing Populations

Will Canada be a desired destination for immigration?

I think Canada will be a pretty desired destination. It is one of the most free countries in the World. People from other countries, who aren't allowed to believe in a certain religion, can come here and feel generally safe about their religion. Other than the terror attacks, that can happen, you are safe to believe in your religion. Another thing that Canada allows is freedom of speech, so that you can speak out about a topic, ad not get arrested. Women also get rights that woman might not get in other places. Women can also get the same pay as men.

Who will Canada be attracting as immigrants?

Canada will attract people from countries that are very focused on one religion, like Middle Eastern Countries. Canada will also be attracting people from places that do not have very high pay at jobs, and are looking for better money. The education can also be better than other places. People can also speak out about topics that they wish to talk about, without fear of being arrested, or killed. You can be a reporter in Canada, and share your opinion about leaders in the media. Canada is just generally a more free, and accepting country.

How will Canada's population look?

Canada's population will continue to age, and more people will start to get old. There will be a large number of 60-64 year old people. They will be tied with 35-39 year old people, both having a set of percentage of population at 3.4 and 3.5 or The other way around.

What issues will our First nations, Métis, and Inuit population face?

Some issues they might face are mental health issues. It can cause suicide. Poverty, inadequate housing, and problems finding work or getting an education have created further barriers to adequate and appropriate health care. Health Canada says that the suicide rate of Inuits is 11 times more than the national average.

Interactions in the Physical Environment

Why does Canada have the Climate that it does?

Canada has it's climate because of it's latitude, how close most of it's land is to water, and how much of it is landlocked. In some places, mountains remove the water from the air, and makes the leeward side of the mountain that is away from the mountain a dry place. It is cold and snowy because of how far north it is.

Describe Canada's various Physical Regions.

The Western Cordillera is a largely a line of mountains about 80 km wide that runs up the west side of North America. The Interior Plains are lowlands that borders part of the Canadian Shield, and are underlain by sedimentary rocks. The fertile Red River Valley has a lot of black clay and silt soils. The Canadian Shield is a large area of Precambrian igneous rocks and high grade metamorphic rock. It is covered in a thin layer of soil. It surrounds the Bay area, and Hudson Bay. The Hudson Bay Lowlands are a large area of wetlands. There are many wide rivers there. The Arctic Lowlands are an area of plains, made up of a bunch of islands. The Saint Lawrence Lowlands are an area of fertile, arable land.The Innuitian Mountains are a range of mountains in Nunavut and the Northwest Territories. The Appalachian mountains are a range of mountains in Canada's East.

How will Climate Change alter Canada's Physical Environment.

It will melt the Ice in the north, allowing access to oil that is apparently under the seafloor in the ocean. It will melt glaciers and ice sheets in the north as well.

mountains are a mountain range in the arctic areas of nunavut and the Northwest Territories.

Managing Canada's Resources and Industries

What will be Canada's most important Resources?

I think that Water will be a very important resource. Everyone on Earth needs water, and we have a huge reserve of it in Canada, in our lakes. If we do not turn to green energy by 2035, which may be a little early, our oil will still be an important resource.Forestry will be important as well.

How will Canada mange those resources in a Sustainable manner?

We can make sure that no one sucks out massive amount of water from the lakes and rivers, and also stop all pollution going into bodies of water. It is hard to imagine a way to manage oil sustainably, except to maybe just find more oil fields. We can manage Forestry by not allowing companies to clear cut whole forests, leaving the land bare.

How is Canada connected to the rest of the world through trade and globalization?

We trade our stuff with other countries, and we buy stuff from other countries. We also have International Companies in here, and they connect us to the World as well.

Liveable Communities

What issues are Canadian Cities Facing?

They have to deal with waste management, taking care of the environment and managing urban sprawl, taking care of public transit, and any infrastructure that I hadn't mentioned that is an issue.

Will Urban Sprawl be an issue in 2035?

I think yes, because the population of some cities will just keep on growing, and builders will keep on building houses. This could cause them to destroy some habitats, and natural spaces. Canada might not grow in population hugely, but if the population is mostly compacted into Major Urban Cities, it could still be a big problem. It is encouraged by high cost of housing downtown. Also, people do not want to live in more compact places.

How can Ontario limit Urban Sprawl in 2035?

We can make it so that the cost of land in Downtown areas are reduced, that people are encouraged to live in more compact housing, like condos, and that houses for just one family is discouraged. Maybe the government will pay for a part of the cost of a condo, and part of the utility fee.

What initiatives will Canadian Cities take to be sustainable in 2035?

We can build green power sources, make a sustainable waste management system, and one that also recycles as much as it can. We can encourage people to separate the recycling, organics, and garbage. We can make water purification plants very efficient. We can also get food to be shipped in from local sources, like farmers.

Canada in 2035

Canada needs to do a lot of stuff to become sustainable. I found that Canada needs to upgrade its infrastructure by 2035 to be sustainable. This is very important, because climate change is happening, and the World is advancing. If Canada is to not fall behind, it needs to get those things for a sustainable city. That way we might be able to help slow down climate change, and other issues in the World.
