Canada provides education for every Canadian citizen, provides various job opportunities which other countries have limited of or none at all, it doesn't have a corrupted government and is a peaceful country because there is no war. Canada provides a lot of opportunities,such as voting,work and rights.

HealthCare

health care in Canada is delivered through a publicly funded health care system, which is mostly free and is the quality of care through federal standards. Generally, the public healthcare system make certain basic medical care for all citizens.Canada is the only country with a universal healthcare system that does not include coverage of prescription medication.In Canada, the health care system is funded by income, sales and corporate taxes.everyone is covered automatically at birth.Compared to other countries, medical insurance is low cost in Canada yet the services that Canadian hospitals provide are some of the most advanced and easily accessible in the world. Canada's healthcare compared to another country you would see how Canadas health care is actually better. For example; in Canada, your coverage/insurance isn't tied to a certain job you may have and it doesn't matter what your income is, you can be rich or poor everyone gets the same basic(free) healthcare through the same system, and where as in the USA much still depends on your job or income, so if you would lose your job or income you would lose your existing healthcare insurance or have to settle for a lesser coverage.

Education

Education in Canada is publicly funded by federal, provincial ,and local governments, which means its free. In Canada the levels of education goes by; elementary,secondary,and post secondary.Education in Canada is provided and mandatory for all citizens,it doesn't matter what race,colour.gender,or nationality you are Canada is a place of multiculturalism and diversity and allows everyone the equal right of education. International students who have graduated from a Canadian university or college have the to work in Canada for up to 1 year after they receive their degree or diploma.

Immigartion In Canada

Our immigration system is very diverse and accepts everyone from every race and culture. There is Currently 250,000 immigrants immigrating to Canada yearly. Immigrants come to Canada mainly because of its availability of jobs, better health care, guarantees any child no matter what gender; boy or girl to have an education, guarantees any "Canadian Citizen" rights such as voting. Many immigrants leave their home country because its; overpopulated, unsafe/poor living conditions, poverty, lack availability of jobs, corrupt government, and/or war. Most immigrants come from Asia(including the middle east), the Philippines is Canadas main source of immigrants, they also come from india, china and Pakistan. Immigrants tend to live in cities with over 100,000 inhabitants, such as Toronto,Vancouver,Edmonton and Montreal. About 70% of immigrants choose to live there because it has diversity of other cultures and more job opportunities. And a significant number of the almost 100,000 foreign students visiting Canada each year decide to stay after getting a degree from one of our world-class universities such as The University Of Toronto. Surveys and polls have showed that the majority of Canadians believe that immigrants make positive contributions to our country and communities.

Climate/Landform regions

Canada has many different landform regions combined with vegetation regions.

Canada is made up of 3 landform regions; Canadian Shield,highlands and low lands

within these 3 there are smaller sub regions:

  • Western Cordillera Region.
  • Interior Plains.
  • Canadian Shield.
  • Hudson Bay Lowlands.
  • Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Lowlands.
  • Appalachian Region.
  • Arctic Lowlands.
  • Innuation Mountains.


    The Best Region Of Canada that is the best for agriculture is the interior plains, which include the provinces of Manitoba, Saskatuwan and Alberta. In this region there is black, dark brown, and brown soil. If the soil is dark then it means there is a high humus level. If there is a high humus level it helps produce air in the soil, because the loose decaying materials allow for many air pockets. Humus provides nutrients and moisture for plants. In this part of Canada there is an average amount of precipitation and a long growing season for crops. Even though not all of canadas landform and vegetation regions aren't good for farming they have other purposes such as great scenery and tourist

    attractions, and recreation for example;


    The Innuitian Mountains Landform is the best landform region for recreation. In the innuitian mountains there are many sights to see,you can go on a snowmobiling tour,hiking,dog sleading and snowshoeing,hunting is also a popular activity in The Innuitian Mountains you can hunt seals and snow hares.you can go sight seeing and see the very few wildlife the Innuitian has such as seals,polar bears and snow hears.you can also see the northern lights and the midnight sun from the Innuitians.


    The Tundra has beautiful scenery such as the ice caps and glaciers(this region isn't used for vegetation because of the cold climate and permafrost)

    Primary Industries/ Natural Resources

    Canada has five primary industries; Mining,fishing,forestry,energy and farming. We get various natural resources from these industries such as, coal,oil and fossil fuel from mining, wood from forestry,crops (potatoes,tomatoes) from farming,fish from fishing. These resources provide for over 20% of our economy. Since we have all these industries and resources,it means w have many job opportunities available. Natural resources provide for about 10% and the number is stil growing in Canada,so that means if your an immigrant in Canada you have a great chance at getting these job opportunities. To keep these industries and resources from depleting we have to learn how to substain it. We can do this by the industries like mining to stop using open pit mining often because it is ruining our land and stop producing toxic waste and letting it get into our air and water supply. And we can substain our minerals by using less of it or substituting it with another resource.If we do this Canada will be sustainable for future generations.

    Cities/Population

    Canada's population is approximately 35 million people. We are the 2nd worlds largest country in the world and make 0.5% of the worlds population. Our population density is one of the lowest in the world with 3,3 people per square km. Canada's population is located more near the south where there is good soil, climate and vegetation. That is where the CMA cities are located too, like Toronto and Montreal. Other than that there aren't really any there locations with a high density. The CMA cities are the most populated because it is the most diverse and multicultural place, and have many job opportunities available , so when immigrants come here that's where there most likely to go. Canada is in the 4th demographic stage and that means its a developed country and has a stable population. Most of The CMA cities have high population density, which is causing urban sprawl,We can make our cities more sustainable is controlling urban sprawl we can do that by using the principles of " smart growth" and creating compact, higher-density communities with public transit, bike paths, and walking trails, surrounded by farmland and green spaces like wetlands and woodlands.
