IS CANADA THE GREATEST COUNTRY TO LIVE IN? gURSImran aujla

INTRODUCTION

Although Canada could use multiple improvements in order to enhance our country, I do believe that it is the greatest country to live in.

CHANGING POPULATIONS

Immigration System; Canada accepts around 250,000 immigrants and refugees come into Canada. Most immigrants emigrate from from India, China, and the Philippines. Other common reasons why people enter Canada, besides immigration and refugees, are because, it’s developed, freedom of speech, and free education. We can benefit from immigrants because, they bring their language with them which can help us in many ways.

Immigrants from India

Canada is the eighth most developed country in the world. This means that it has an excellence of quality in living. Additionally, Canada is one of the most diverse places in the world as we accept anyone no matter their background. We also accept aboriginal peoples who are roughly spread across Canada mostly located in Ontario and British Columbia.

PHYSICAL INTERACTIONS

Canada consist of numerous land form regions such as glaciers and, great lakes.

Glaciers consist of many consequences to Canada’s Landscape such as the fact that they cut “U” shaped valleys through mountain passes. The weight of the ice on the glacier may also depress the landscape through a period of time. This could result to rising of the land which is terrible for pipelines and power poles. Melting glaciers is one of the biggest causes of global warming in Canada. Throughout the past century, loss of ice sheets on the glacier have been shown. Although all the disadvantages, melted glacier's water could be useful in a way for the construction of hydroelectricity.

Canada's great lakes consist of lake Superior, Huron, Michigan, Ontario and Erie. These fresh water lakes consist of 20% of the worlds fresh water. These days, the fresh water lakes are used for activities such fishing, boating, and other recreational land use activities. However, the lakes still fulfill their importance to the community of transporting goods, drinking water and agriculture use.

MANAGING CANADA'S RESOUCRES

Industries in Canada consist of primary, secondary, tertiary, and quaternary. These industries provide work force for residents of Canada. Over half of these industry workers work in the tertiary industry which is simply the process that provides a wide range of services for customers that support primary and secondary industries. For example, Costco is a tertiary industry because it sells products made from primary and secondary industries to customers world wide.

In Canada, many primary industries such as; fishing, mining, coal, oil, agriculture, and forestry are found around the country.

Fishing effects our country in a way that it grows our economy. In 2015, Canada exported $6 billion in fish and seafood. 76,045 people got jobs from this industry in 2014 alone. They've exported 85% of the fish harvested. It produces products such as canned fish, Chinese medicine, and fish oil. Some challenges that this industry faces comes from the extraction process form the the workers called trawling. Trawling is when you catch fish with wide mouthed nets, scraping the bottom of the ocean. These nets not only catch some of the wrong species which eventually die, but they also destroy habitat.

Almost half a million Canadians received jobs from the oil industry. Alberta's oil sands contains the third largest oil reserves in the world producing over 2.3 barrels a day. This non-renewable resource produces motor oil, grease, polishes and, wax for candles.

Canada also participates in the NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) The purpose of this is to import and export goods with the U.S. and Mexico which results to mutual wins between countries.

LIVABLE COMMUNITIES

Canada consists of two major settlements; rural and urban. Rural area are places outside of cities which consist of spaced out living settlements with more vegetation and less population density. Urban areas are places such as cities or towns which were once villages, tuned into towns and grew into cities. Urban settlement is great for transportation of goods and people but the area tends to be very overcrowded compared to rural settlements. Rural areas have peace, quiet, and fresh foods but unfortunately, transportation is extremely difficult and there are very few doctors and hospitals.
