Canada is an amazing country with diverse communities due to its immigrants, many different land form regions, variety of natural resources, and different levels of urbanization. Personally, I think Canada is the best country in the world or is at least one of the best. In this web page I'm going to tell you my reasoning for why Canada's isn't one of the best countries in the world using the information I learned throughout the Canadian geography coarse.
Canada has an extremely high immigration rate and an extremely low emigration rate. This is manly do to the fact of Canada having a low population which opens up many job opportunities that Canadians can't fill and must be filled be immigrants instead. Canada having a very high immigration rate and a low emigrant rate means that many people find a good life in Canada and most Canadian emigrants come back to Canada after 5-10 years.
Canada has a constrictive growth rate due to more older people living due to medication, access to doctors, sanitation, etc. and less births occurring. In Canada there are less births than deaths this is probably because now-a-days kids aren't a necessity due to the developed world we live in today. This is a good thing because it allows more Canadian immigrants to have more job opportunities in Canada.
One amazing thing about Canada is its' immigration system. Due to Canada's constrictive growth rate, the Canadian workforce will have lot's of more jobs available due to the baby boomers retiring. Hence, more immigrants (specifically economic immigrants) are required to keep the Canadian economy stable. Approximately 250 000 immigrants come to Canada to improve their standard of living each year. Many of these immigrants come from developing countries such as India, China, and the Philippines. Many immigrants that come to Canada are economic immigrants that bring their family/families as well (family immigrants) as well. Canada is one of those generous countries which has a family class program which allows economic immigrants to bring grandparents, parents, children, spouses, etc into Canada. Canada also gives many of the immigrants support as well which give them the potential of improving their standard of living even easier.
The treatment of (FNMI)S is definitely not us as Canadian should be proud of. We have tried to take away all First Nation culture and and language by placing First Nations in residential schools not long ago and have established the Indian Act which gives First Nation Canadians different laws/rules to follow. Since these things occurred not so long ago many people have not taken time to get over it, almost every countries has a dark past (ex. America has took black people from Africa and used them as slaves.) Due to the amount of dis-supports during the next few years the Indian Act will be abolished and First Nations will have the same laws/rules as all Canadians. Almost every country has a dark past and hopefully as the strong Nation we are we can get past this awful way we have treated the First Nations Community.
Canada's Physical Environment
Canada is the 2nd biggest geographical region in the world. Hence, its' got many landform regions such as the Interior Plains, Canadian Shield, Hudson Bay Low Lands, etc. All of these landfrom regions have different physical and biological features such as climate, vegetation, rocks, etc.
Arctic and hudson bay lowLands:
- Very flat lands
- Swampy forests
- Lots of sedimentary rock
- Very icy
- Variety of rocks igneous, metamorphic, but mostly sedimentary
- Very barren
- Lots of hills
- Lots of minerals
- Relatively flat land with hills and rocks
- Lot's of minerals
- Well suited for mining and farming
- Scenic rivers, waterfalls, lakes, rock outcrops, and vast forest
- Mountains (ex. Rocky mountains)
- Relatively flat land
- Lots of sedimentary rocks
- Minerals beneath the surface
- Rolling hills and deep river valleys
GREAT LAKES - sT. lAWRENCE LOW LANDS:
- Well-suited to agriculture
- Glacial hills/ Deep river valleys
- Lots of sedimentary rock
- Igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rock
- River valleys
- Hills/ mountains
- Ocean harbours
Having a variety of landfrom regions is very important for various reasons. I personally think that Canada having different landforms makes it more suitable for everyone especially immigrants to live in. Immigrants that live in hotter regions in the world would be able settle in landform regions like the Interior plains and immigrants from cooler countries such as Russia and Finland could settle in landform regions such as the arctic lowlands. Having suitable living conditions that is perfect for everyone is what makes a geographical region like Canada so amazing.
If you want to avoid Natural Disasters Canada is one of the best countries to live in. Many Natural Disaster which occur in Canada are very minor, so minor that we can't even feel it. The only major Natural Disasters are usually only forest fires. But forest fires are beneficial for sustaining a natural balance in an ecosystem. Forest fires remove harmful diseases and decaying matter from the ecosystem. Other than forest fire Natural Disaster such as earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, and tsunamis, are very unlikely to occur in Canada. Which makes Canada a save place to be protected from Natural Disaster.
Mangement of Resources
Canada has an extreme abundance of natural resources. Canada harvests these natural resources from the ecosystem for the sake of the economy. Most of Canada's exports are natural resources. The Canadian economy would be in a lot of trouble if we stopped exporting goods and services to other countries because The Canadian economy relies heavily on exports of good and services to sustain the wealth The Canadian Economy. The extraction of natural resources provides many more jobs to Canadians and immigrants. The extraction of natural resources helps sustain The Canadian economy and provides many jobs for people which is why the extraction of natural resources in Canada is benefit which most countries don't have.
