Canada In 2035
what will Canada look like in 2035?
Unit 1: Changing Populations
These immigrants coming from overseas have increased our population and have also made Canada a more multicultural country
Canada used to have a lot of openings in the labor market, but since many immigrants have come over to Canada, they have gone in to the labor field and have filled in the positions
Majority of immigrants coming to Canada decide to settle in Toronto, Montreal, or Vancouver, Therefore these cities become major metropolitan areas and highly diverse.This will shape our society in the future, because we will be more multicultural
We are in Stage 4 of the demographic transition model.
Being in stage 4 means that our population has slow growth.
One main reason why we have slow growth is because the baby boomers are going into retirement, and since they have aged the elderly population is greater than the youth population.
Another factor contributing to slow population growth is that our birth rate is very low. If we have a low birth rate, then we will have slow population growth.
The main reason why we have a low birth rate is because our fertility rate is 1.5 children per woman.
When you have a low birth and fertility rate and an ageing population you get slow population growth.
Aboriginal people have a higher population of youth
They have a higher birth rate than death rate and this means that the population is growing rapidly unlike Canada's general population
The federal government should give more access to schooling for the children so they can learn and develop their skills.
Aboriginal people have a high fertility rate and a shorter life expectancy, so if the fertility rate is high then the population is expanding. The federal government needs to give them access to healthcare for the woman, better healthcare to increase the life expectancy and to help expand aboriginal population.

Urban Sprawl & Sustainable cities 2035
Currently urban sprawl is a very big issue, and I believe it will also be a huge issue by 2035. I believe this, because their are many solutions to urban sprawl such as, biking, walking, less commute time, and to get involved and make a difference, but currently we have not executed these solutions and I believe this will not happen for awhile. Urban sprawl will still be an issue in 2035, but their are ways we can limit urban sprawl. One way to limit urban sprawl is an infill, An infill is the taking over of open land that has not been used in awhile. This is a very key way to limit urban sprawl, because we will not be taking over agricultural and environmentally protected lands. Another way Ontario can limit urban sprawl by 2035 is to design cities with high density residential areas, so everything is compact and more people will be walking and biking. This will also be more environmental friendly. In order for cities to be sustainable in the future, some cities will need to take initiatives. One initiative that some cities can do is to increase the public transport. In order to increase the number of people that will take the public transit system, some cities will have to increase the cost of car ownership and gas prices and thoroughly encourage walking and biking. Another initiative some cities can do is to extract less resources than nature's ability to replenish. One very important thing that cities can d to become more sustainable is to use sustainable energy. Most cities are currently using fossil fuels, but I believe that by 2035 some cities will have to or will already be using sustainable energy, which causes almost no pollution. Furthermore some cities will have to insulate buildings and install more modern heating and ventilation equipment. The reasoning for this is because currently in the developed world 40% of carbon emissions come from buildings come from heating, cooling and powering buildings, so if we install more efficient buildings we will reduce the amount of carbon emissions
Canada is great country with many things to offer its inhabitants such as a phenomenal education and government system, global connections, and many fantastic landform regions. But with the problems of urban sprawl, low birth rate, an ageing population, and climate change, we will face a lot of adversity. In order to overcome these problems we will have to use infills, high density residential houses, increase our fertility rate, and reduce our carbon footprint. We also need to do sustainable development which means we need to preserve our resources for the future. I believe that if we solve these problems and sustain our resources for the future, Canada will be the best country by 2035.
