7.2 - Economy and Culture of Canada Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Economy and Culture of Canada
  • 2.
    • Big industries in Canada:
    • Farming
      • A rather small amount of the land can be farmed, but it’s very productive and provides lots of grain.
  • 3.
    • Logging
      • Has massive forests and Canada produces more wood and paper products than any other country.
  • 4.
    • Mining
      • Lots of minerals, such as diamonds.
  • 5. The Ice Road
  • 6.  
  • 7.  
  • 8.
    • Fishing
      • When you’re bordered by three oceans and have lots of river, that means lots of fish.
  • 9.
    • Much like in the U.S., the Canadian economy started out agrarian, shifted to industrial, and now predominately service based.
    • Main trading partner is the U.S. We’re close, we’re prosperous, and we also share a 5,525 border that’s largely open due to our good relations.
      • Almost 85% of Canada’s exports come to the U.S.
      • NAFTA (the North American Free Trade Agreement) was passed in 1992 and went into effect in 1994.
        • Made trade among Canada, the U.S. and Mexico easier by removing trade barriers.
  • 10.
    • Canada is very multicultural
    • Has especially French and English culture.
      • French Canadians reside primarily in Quebec.
        • Quebec is therefore predominantly French Catholic
        • Many people in Quebec have attempted to separate from the rest of Canada and become their own country.
  • 11.
    • There are also the Metis, people who have a mixed heritage of French and First Nations cultures.
