Final Evaluation

Will Canada Be The Greatest Country To Live In 2035

Introduction

In 2035 I do think Canada will become one of the greatest countries to live in. At the moment Canada has a lot of immigrants coming to live in and also offers so much for citizens. In unit 1 changing populations I will be talking about how Canadas population has changed over the years and what I predict it to be in 2035. In unit 2 interactions in the physical enviornment I will be talking about how interactions with our enviornment will change over the next two decades. I will talk about canadas resource and industries progress so far and how that will change as well as communities economies progress by 2035.

Unit 1: Changing Populations

Since 1986 until now immigration rates have been increasing each year and I predict as the country continues to grow so will the immigration rates. I think immigration to Canada will attract young families or couples that are coming from countries such as China, India, Africa etc. Canada offers better education, jobs, better economy and appropriate distance for every day needs. Compared to the united states population Canada has a steady population which is why it attracts so many immigrants because it is not over populated like the USA and china. With all the new job creations and buildings being put in I think it may start to be a problem for first nations because of all the land being used for the cities to become larger. By 2035 I think Canadas population will continue to grow but that could be a problem and Canada could become overly populated.

Unit 2: Interactions In The Physical Enviornment

The climate in Canada is always changing with all 4 seasons. Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. But with global warming, green house gas emissions air pollution etc. The climate could change slightly or dirastically by 2035. In 2000 Canada ranked 9th out of 186 countries per capita for green house gas emissions. I think if pollution and green house gases start to become a larger issue by the time 2035 this may effect climate change to becoming hotter and longer summers or colder and longer winters. The climate in Canada varies in each land form, The cordillera's climate is usually mild and wet with not a lot of snow. The praries are a bit of both equaly, summers are usually hot and dry and winters are bitterly cold. There are a lot of storms, hail and floods that are usually expected. The North: Usually it is cold but due to global warming and it is starting to become warmer than usual which could lead to extintion of some animals in the upcoming years. The Canadian Shield: Has short cold winters and long hot summers. The Great Lakes: Winter has long and cold nights and short cold days. Summer has short warm nights and long hot days. The St. Lawrence River: The winters can be unpredictable can be cold and sticky because of humidty and very humid in the summer. The Atlantic: Mostly cool and moist climate, long mild winters average -4 in January and cool summers regular temp in July is 18 degrees. I think because of issues starting now it could be cleared up in the next 20 years depending on if we take the right steps to make that happen or it could change climate and go downhill.

Unit 3: Managing Canada's Resources & Industries

Canada is 5th best oil producer in the world. In 2014/15 our best resources are oil, energy, forests, minerals and metals. We produce oil that we trade mostly with the United States this is why in Alberta where oil is produced the Canadian Government is wanting to put in a pipeline to double the production of oil and sales this will also create more jobs, more money and better trading with the US. As well Forestry is a big part of Canada but so is deforestration. Deforestration has become a big issue because of clearing of large forests for urban development and agriculture. If we continue to cut down trees and clear forests this could become a major issue in the next 2 decades. Minerals and metals are also something included in our resources. Canada is one of the leading mining nations in the world, producing more than 60 minerals and metals so that is definetly a high resource being produced in Canada. I think in the next 2 decades the production will double and become one of the biggest leading mining nations in the world.

Unit 4: Liveable Communities

In Canada the issues cities are facing are ubanization, population growth, pollution, green house gases, etc. I do think urbanization will become a large problem in the next two decades. At the moment there is a large population in urban areas that is growing and there is starting to become a problem with the resources being provided for these areas because the population is growing so fast and large the resources are not being provided as much for everyone and I think if the population continues to grow over the years this could start to become a big issue. I think to avoid this problem we should build more areas for parts of the population to go so that there is not a large population in one area and so that it is spread out with equal resources and towns close to places for the populations everyday needs.

Conclusion

In my opinion I think global warming and pollution green house gases etc. will continue to get worse and I do think that will become a big issue for growing economy's, immigration, population etc. I think we will start to have longer summers and shorter winters as we have seen over the last decade. As of the past few years we have started getting shorter cooler summers and longer colder winters so this could go the oppisite way. I also think population may start to become a bigger issue than it is at the moment, because everyone wants to live in Canada for the climate, cities, education, job offers etc. I do think Canada will become the greatest country but if these issues continue to get worse it could go the other way as well.
