Canada Best Country To Live in 2035
By: Tharanya Pirabakaran
Changing Population, Interactions in the Physical Environment, Managing Canada’s Resources and Livable Communities are what will drastically change in Canada in the year of 2035. This smore will me stating what changes Canada will face in the year of 2035, talking about both issues and positivity Canada will face in 2035. Things like population change, how we are going to be sustainable with resources and our environment, our landform regions, vegetation zones, and urban sprawl will be discussed here.
Canada being one of the most developed countries will continue to be one of immigrant’s first choices when it comes to immigrating. Canada has a various amount of attractions that they will be able to provide the immigrants with in 2035 that will be improved on such as workforce, healthcare, education, multiculturalism, reliable government, and promise of freedom and speech.
Canada's will make sure to enforce these attractions to make sure things happening in the country disturb none of them. Canada's current workforce rely on citizens that will be able to work in the labor market, which will attract more immigrants that are willing to come into the labor market to immigrate to Canada. Immigrants will also be attracted by the free healthcare Canada has and will have. Some immigrants wouldn't have to budget to provide for medical care as they will be using their money on other necessities. Canada is also well known for it education/ school systems. Families and teens who are wishing for themselves or their kids to have a good education to make sure they will be able to get a job will feel a pull towards Canada as Canada provide citizens with the supply of a proper education. Multiculturalism is also another point that will bring the immigrants into Canada. Canada has many cultures in it and immigrants will find it easy to talk to people and go to them for help if there were people within their race. There is not favouritism when it comes to gender or race in Canada. Canada also has a reliable government that the citizens can count on when it comes to war, taxes, rules and regulations etc..
As Canada will be attempting to attract immigrants from across the world, there are certain immigrants that they will wish to attract into the country. Economic immigrants, family immigrants, and labor workers( skilled immigrants). Canada will want workers who will succeed in the Canadian labor market to make sure all products made in the labor market get processed through right and get to the citizen who want/need it. Economic immigrants spilt into many groups the like CEC( Canadian Experience Class), which allows temporary foreign workers with at least one year of Canadian work experience to apply for permanent work residence.
I believe that in from now till around 2030-2035 the population of Canada will grow, but not as big as the baby boom. Around the year of 2035-2050(continue) I feel the growth will rapidly slow down and will moderately stay the same, maybe gore a little and maybe decrease a little but will moderately stay the same. This is because around those years the citizens of Canada will focus on their academics instead of family and will be looking for jobs. It is after the job searching that they will look forward and start to make families. There is a slight possibility that these people will realize that they need to sustain Canada's population and will start making families sooner and bigger which will cause a rapid growth to the population.
Hopefully over the years, the petitions and protests the FNMI have made will pay off and the government will start giving them a voice and start taking their issues under considerations and begin solving their crisis. Not all stories have happily ever after a so there is also a chance that the FMNI may not be looked at when population distribution takes place, the population will eventually grow and spread out to other land, and eventually the native land will need to be used a civilized.

Interactions in the Physical Environment
As parts of Canada is located up north, between equator and North, and near water shores, we have all 4 seasons. Our winters can reach around -25 degrees Celsius, and out summer can go up to around 35 degrees Celsius. But as global warming continues our climates are slowly changing. Summers are getting hotter than usual sending our heat waves , our winters are dropping rapidly, causing weather alerts and freeze alerts. This is called climate change. Because of the climate changes slowly happening in Canada our physical landform regions change. Canada's physical environment is a spectacular place but as time goes by, due to climate change, it will alter. Glaciation up north will alter some physical formations of land, which will create groves and rough edges into the land. Erosion will also cause the same alter to the land but water erosion will also loosen up the rich ground soil, which will eventually wash away. Rising water levels caused by global warming, also risk the chance of flooding of land which will destroys naturals habitats and man-made habitats. Global warming takes a heavy toll on wildlife, and communities that rely on any given landscape for food, water, shelter and income. Because of these climate changes feeding ground may become barren, and animals that relied on certain natural corridors may no longer provide for their needs.
Canada’s Vegetation Zones
Canada’s various climates have a impact on the type of vegetation in a location. Canada is divided in7 vegetation regions
Consists of trees that shed their leaves in fall.
Consists of coniferous (have cones and needles like leaves) and deciduous trees, and has good soil for growing
Boreal Forest and Taiga
The boreal and taiga forest is the largest vegetation zones containing, col weather, harsh winters with acidic, leached soils, many coniferous trees and it is the boundary between the tundra of the north and deciduous trees of the south
Consists of dry climate, which is to dry for trees, suited for crop growing and soils with deep humus
Located west coast of Canada, and tree lines forms high acclivity as temperatures become cool. Consists of thin soils, and high elevations have meadows of flowers and shrubs.
The Tundra forest is locates in the northern part of Canada, and it consists of cold temperature, low precipitation, short growing seasons, thin soils, small shrubs and lichens and mosses. This is locates above tree line with ground made of permafrost.
West Coast Forest
Consists of large trees, mild temperature, heavy rainfall, and large humus content. Has warm winter and summer, and long growing seasons.
Canada’s Landform Regions
The Innuitian Mountains ranges are located in northernmost parts of Nunavut and Northwest Territories. It contains sedimentary rocks; some mountains have igneous and sedimentary rocks, depending on the locations. The average temperature there can drop to around -30 to -25 degrees. Average summer temperature is 5 degrees. About 85% of soil is trapped under the ice creating permafrost and only 50 days a year to grow crops due to it. No Plants can grow well through the permafrost and the climate also causes thin soil layer and very humus. Wind, which comes off of the Arctic Ocean to the north and blows front south causes the weather in the mountains. Mountains cause relief precipitation; cold winds carry downwards and keep permafrost frozen in place. The natural resources from the Innuitian Mountains are large water reservoirs from the permafrost-covered areas, zinc, iron, various other metals, and coal (fossil fuels).
The Western Cordillera is located on the western side of Canada, mainly in British Columbia. It’s made up of plateaus, plains, and valleys. The climate in the Western Cordillera is moist and mild, and since it is located near water, you can feel a cool chill in the air. Western Cordillera has maritime climates, meaning that winters are usually above FREEING and summers are cooler. The latitude of the mountains affects the leeward side mountains. In the Western Cordillera there are sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous rocks. Natural resources in the Western Cordillera are forestry, mining and fisheries.
Hudson Bay Arctic Lowlands
The Hudson Bay is located between the Canadian Shield and southern shores of Hudson’s bay and James Bay. Most areas are within Ontario, while smaller portions are located in Manitoba and Quebec. The climate in the Hudson Bay and Arctic Lowlands is very harsh, grounds remains frozen most of the year and a combination of coal, oil and natural gas are formed which is called lignite. Natural Resources found in the Hudson Bay Arctic Lowlands are oil, peat, and natural gas.
The Interior Plains are located in parts of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Southern Manitoba. The climate in the interior plains isn’t as stable as others. It has long winter and short hot summers. The winters can be low as -30 degrees and summers can be warm as 30 degrees. The natural resources in the interior plains are oil, gas, gypsum, and potash. There are sedimentary, metamorphic rocks, and igneous rocks.
Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Lowland
The Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Lowland is southern most region in Canada. It is mostly in the southern parts of Ontario but also can be found in Quebec. In summers the weather is very hot, humid and dry and in winters it is extremely cold. There are sedimentary rocks in the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence. The natural resources in the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence lowlands like metallic minerals, livestock, rick soil, water and grains.
The Canadian Shield covers most of Newfoundland and Labrador, most of Quebec north of the Saint Lawrence River and most of Ontario. The Canadian Shield contains, mountains, rocks, coniferous trees, deciduous trees, soil, and water. The average weather in the winter is -18 degrees and the average weather in the summer is 25 degrees. The resources that can be found in the Canadian Shield are copper, zinc, iron, gold, silver, uranium, diamonds, and lead.
The Appalachian climate is affected by two ocean currents. The Labrador currents bring cold water south from the Arctic and causes freezing during the winter months in northern parts of the region. The Gulf Stream brings warm water north from the Caribbean and along the coast of North America before it runs east, crossing the Atlantic ocean to Europe. The mean annual temperature in the winter is 3.5 degrees and the mean annual summer temperature is 14.5 degrees. The appalachians is rich in coal and fish. Zinc, lead, potash, salt, asbestos, copper and gold are mined in the Appalachian region. Cod, salmon, pollock, halibut, redfish, herring, swordfish, sole, flounder, haddock, clams, oysters, scallops and lobsters are harvested here.
Managing Canada's Resources & Industries
Canada's resources are a precious thing that Canada should make sure doesn't get used to quickly or to slowly. Canada will need to keep these resources and make sure that they don’t get overused before 2035. Canada has many resources that are produced here such as oil from the oil sands in Alberta, gold, uranium, nickel, diamonds, petroleum, lead, forestry, natural gas, coal, fishing and crude. Canada is a large producer of these products and we will need to manage these resources carefully making sure we don't over use them.
To manage these resources in a sustainable manner, when considering using them, we can use other renewable resources to replace the other resources to make sure we don't run out because of over usage. The government of Canada can also establish more rules and regulations to balance the extraction of these resources to the amount we have left so Canada doesn't use it all up. For forestry, every tree that is cut down, or fallen, another tree can be planted. We need to carefully manage our trees and harvest and replace them with seedlings as we cut them down. Fishery is also something we must use wisely. Fisheries and Ocean Canada works to secure the future of our wild capture fisheries through sustainable and responsible fisheries management. As for coal, it will not be able to be sustained, and can be only used for a period of time before it’s gone, but we can always use less.
Canada is connected to the world in many ways. People across the world are somehow connected. Canada is connected to the world through trade, which causes economic changes, in countries involved. Canada is also involved in Multinational Corporation, which are companies that extend beyond the border of the country. Canada continues to be heavily dependent and connected to the rest of the world because of trade, globalization, Multinational Corporation, culture and economy.
I feel most Canadians will be living in populated cities, where taxes, and necessities are cheap. There isn't a likely chance that many people will live up north because it takes more money to ship/deliver supplies further up north due to the lack of resources already there so if a citizen living up north were to buy the same thing as a citizens in a more populated area it would cost more. People would move go large developed cities to make sure they wouldn't need to pay much but they will also make sure that the city isn't too populated, otherwise it would be hard to get around. They will also need to make sure that the city has an urban setting but we citizens will need to adapt to the expanding of cities.
Urban sprawl will probably be an issue in the year of 2035. Urban sprawl leads to care dependent culture since there would be traffic, which would mean carbon emissions. This drains our precious free time, as we will be driving to get to our destination. Urban sprawl will also be cutting into our precious farmland and wildlife leavening us with less free space and wild lands. To reduce this happening if your moving, find a house that is within a 30 minute walk, bike or transit ride from your school, work and or school.
Canada and their people will continue making waste, so we will need to make a plan to sustain and make Canadian cities a better place for the future. To do this we will need to try to think of ways to make the place greener or we need to establish rules and regulations. We have efficient public transportation. By having these efficient public transportations people will be able to use these transportation instead of individual cars to get around, which would help the planet and release less carbon dioxide. The area can also add more bike lanes so people can go biking in warm weathers to their desired destination instead of driving there, once again prevents pollution (carbon dioxide). The area can have recycling programs, which would ensure that the citizens recycle items that can be recycled. The city can also have renewable energy instead of non-renewable energy like coal because making the non-renewable energy would once again cause pollution.
