In my opinion, Canada is the greatest country to live in. I will support my opinion with four reasons: changing population and aboriginals, interactions with the physical environment, managing Canada's resources and industries, and livable communities. Canada's population went up from 32 million in 2005 to 36 million plus currently.
CHANGING POPULATION AND ABORIGINALS
immigration and population growth
Canada is known for the diversity of immigrants they receive from different parts of the world. They are either refugees or immigrants who are in search of a job or better education for their kids. However, it still has a low population growth rate with an area of 9.985 million km². Having a low population density means that there would be less harm to the environment because fewer amount of people are living in the country to produce harmful pollutants. For example in 2008, China has produced around 30 million tonnes of Carbon Dioxide emissions, as for Canada has about 1/60th of China's amount, with around 500, 000 tonnes of Carbon Dioxide emissions. If we looked at from an economic point of view it is easier to manage the finances and resources in Canada. There is less wastage of natural resources, which makes things easier for all. One only needs to take a look at the example of countries such as Australia and Canada to see how well the government has been able to manage resources – both natural and financial – and bring about wide-ranging development. Also allowing more and more immigrants can make our job choices wider some might want to start a business of what they specialize in or continue a family business otherwise they can open a store of imported items that are not available everywhere.
Canada is known for having such diverse communities in each province allowing different races, religions, etc. and giving them the same right as a regular Canadian no injustice. Canada has more than 60% people from Asia and 20% from Africa which shows the multiculturalism we have here in Canada. But with these immigrants we also have our natives in Canada, those who discovered Canada before the Europeans and other explorers, it was there home first. However, we treated these indigenous natives to Canada terribly in the past, but we have now provided them reserves with resources and today we live on there sacred land when long time ago they had made their homes here.
interactions with physical environment
Well in Canada earthquakes, tsunamis, tornadoes, floods, wild fires, hailing and winter storms do occur but are not as bad as other places except for winter storms they are dangerous but mostly for drivers and pedestrians outside during the winter storm. But other major natural disaster does not leave a huge destruction of our surroundings as earthquakes and tsunamis in other countries such as Japan. For safety the Canadian disaster data base has provided us safety plans. Like disasters in Japan are more devastating than Canada because Japan has 3 plate boundaries and Canada only contains one.Canada is the greatest country to live in partially because natural disasters do not occur at a high rate, especially compared to other countries with high natural disaster rate like Japan.
Canada's vegetation is vary because of diversity in its land form regions and its climate. Canada has many land form regions they are Canadian Shield, Great Lakes/ St Lawrence lowlands, interior plains, Hudson's bay/ arctic lowlands, Appalachian region, Innuitian mountains. Each of these land form region has its own different soil, vegetation and rocks. The Canadian Shield covers all most all of eastern Canada, it is made of igneous and metamorphic rock. It is one of the oldest regions on earth. The Great Lakes/ St Lawrence lowlands are located near southern Ontario and southern Quebec, its has both deciduous and coniferous trees. It is the smallest land form in Canada. The Hudson's bay/ arctic lowlands are located in northern Canada. This region is mostly made of sedimentary rock. Some parts of it are cold tundra and some parts are wet and swampy. The Appalachian region is located in eastern Canada. It has many hill and valley areas. The Innuitian mountains are located in northern Canada, it is a range of mountains in Nunavut. It also has mostly sedimentary rock and has a layer of humus. Canada has many different climates depending on which part of Canada. every region in Canada has different amounts of rainfall and soil quality so every part in Canada has a different type of vegetation growing and supplied to other provinces and outside countries.
With NAFTA Canada has lower prices on items you buy since this agreement has removed tariffs on imports to mexico and the U.S. The tax free agreement is very beneficial to Canada since agriculture is cheaper to canada from mexico and imports from U.S too. This is also beneficial to Canada because if t has any arguments with another country it will not lead to a war because the links with mexico and U.S can help resolve the problem and allow no war to occur.
