Canada in 2035

By Fehar Rizvi

Introduction

The purpose of this Smore is to predict what Canada will look like in 20 years. In it you will learn about Canada's immigration and various inhabitants;, about Canada's landform regions and climate, as well as Canada's resources and industries. This Smore also predicts how livable cities will become in 2035.
Immigrating to Canada

Immigration

Currently Canada has many immigrants from across the world, from the Middle East as well as Asia. Canada is a peaceful country, with a plethora of opportunities and a lot of cultural diversity because of its many immigrants. I believe Canada will try to get more immigrants and will become a desired destination for them because of how positively immigrants impact Canada. Canada would focus on attracting skilled workers that would benefit the economy and fill in jobs that will help the country. They contribute to the labor force and contribute to provincial and federal needs. Immigration forms the society by introducing new cultures and languages to Canada's, its something Canada strives off of.

Population

In 2035 there will be many more people living in Canada. Currently the population is about 35 million. It will have grown around 5-6 million in 21 years, resulting in a population of 41 million people. The population won't raise that high considering women's fertility rates will be lower as they will be focusing on their jobs. There will most likely be more elder people then younger, and woman will have more of a part in the society.

Aboriginals

The Aboriginals in Canada believe that they have not been given the land and resources they were promised long ago. That they are being harmed by Canada's government and the Oil Sands are contributing to that by destroying their environment. Currently in 2014 that is a big problem that they are facing. The Alberta Oil Sands are working to regulate GHG (greenhouse gas emissions) as well as trying to avoid bad environmental impacts, though if the Oil Sands were stopped all together it would be much better for the Aboriginals. If the Oil Sands project grows then by 2035 there will be even more production of oil and the Aboriginals land will become inhabitable. But if the problem were solved now by the government of Canada, there will be no problems in the future.

Climate And Physical Regions

Canada's climate varies based on the geography of the land. There's permafrost and freezing temperatures in the north, while near the equator there are 4 different seasons. The different natural resources and climate support Canada's sustainability. Climate change can affect the land and soil, which leads to the inability to grow crops and food on a certain land. Water supply and quality can be affected as well, in dry regions there'll be less water than in tropical regions.


In Canada there are 7 main physical regions, the Cordillera, the Arctic Lands, the Canadian Shield, the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River, the Interior Plains, the Appalachian mountains, and the Hudson Bay Lowlands.


The Cordillera is a mountain range thats climate and vegetation varies.

The Canadian Shield is a large region that takes up 48% of Canada's surface. They have a variety of different climates due to their vastness.

The St. Lawrence River is an important river in Canada with tropical to arctic conditions. Due to it's sedimentary soil, it is excellent for growing crops.

The Appalachian mountains are an old range of mountains heavily affected by Erosion.

The Interior Plains are an area of Canada encompasses. The southern Interior Plains are characterized by grassland vegetation, and have vast expanses of sedimentary bedrock.

The Hudson Bay Lowlands is only 40 percent of a sedimentary basin in the middle of the Canadian Shield.

The Arctic Lands lie north of the tree line. The terrain is frozen and it is a zone of continuos permafrost.

Resources and Trade

Canada's most important resources will most likely be water, oil, natural, gas, minerals, and agricultural products. Oil helps us fuel our vehicles as well as keep places warm. Natural gas contributes to a cleaner environment and help fight against smog, acid rain and climate change. Agricultural products contribute to the food we eat and help our economy grow.

We should conserve our natural resources, and sometime think about our future instead of the present. Our wellbeing economically and environmentally depends on how we manage our natural resources. We have to make choices as people and as consumers about what we do and buy, and whether or not it has a negative impact on our natural resources.


Canada gains much of its profit from exports. In 2035 that won't change. When Canada became its own country it depended heavily on trade and still does, and then an agreement with America helped benefit Canada's economy and make us both trading partners.

Urban Sprawl

In 2035 Urban Sprawl will be an even bigger issue due to the increase in population. Because there will be a higher amount of people wanting to live a good and peaceful lifestyle.


We can limit Urban Sprawl by living in a home that's a 30 min walking radius from the shopping mall, schools, and your work place. More people in Ontario can get involved and address the issue. And can help Ontario by conveying their ideas and concerns.

Sustainability

For Canada's cities to be sustainable in 2035 they must properly manage their resources and try to limit urban sprawl in 2035, They should protect every piece of land and soil in the city and should start becoming more eco-friendly, as well as use their resources effectively.
Creating Sustainable Cities

Conclusion

In conclusion, my belief is that in 2035 Canada will have many immigrants, the climate will not differ much from now, and most likely trading will still play a big role in Canada's economy. The cities in 2035 will face issues but together we can solve and minimize those
