Why Almost Nobody Lives In Most Of Canada

Why Almost Nobody Lives In Most Of Canada | Geography Ed |

"Canada: land-wise, it's one of the world's biggest countries, but population-wise, it's anything but.The map comes from the Government of Canada's 'Plant Hardiness Site,' which contains images showing 'Extreme Minimum Temperature Zones' throughout the Great White North."

Emily Bian's curator insight, November 1, 8:47 PM

Most of Canada's population lives very close to the USA border. The further north you go in Canada, less people live there because it is too cold! That's why the places people live and visit in Canada are so crowded, is because it's very dense due to the fact that most people can't live in northern Canada.

Unit 2 Population

        The population density in Canada is very low and this is due to various factors, including the fact that most of  Canada is inhabitable.   As the map displays there are many extremely cold zones/ regions in Canada which can't be lived in/ farmed in.

        Canada most likely has a very low arithmetic population density and a slightly higher physiological population density. Since most of the population is clustered at the bottom of the country this increases the physiological population density.

Kaitlin Young's curator insight, November 22, 4:33 PM

While many believe that having or living in a large country would be most desirable, larger states often have to deal with varying limitations on land use. Canada may be huge, but majority of the land cannot sustain life. It is estimated that 75% of the Canadian population lives within one hundred miles of the US border. While Canada has an overall cold climate, the central and northern regions are unable to sustain vegetation. Historically, people have always been able to thrive where they can grow crops to survive. With a northern region part of the Arctic Circle, it is no wonder that Canadians try to live as south as possible.

This link is great. So many insightful videos. The one that we saw in class on the nuances of what makes up the UK was very interesting and fun to watch. The UK is a good example on how different geographies exist within the same "borders". In the UK there are many cultures, ethnicities, and politics that work together to make up a nation of nations. The historical scope of the British empire has led to many people around the world having shared connections through their shared past.

Great site - showing locational context is important for not just Geography but every subject. How can we understand the complexities of topics like conflict or urban economies or agricultural histories.... without understanding locations and maps?

Melissa Marie Falco-Dargitz's curator insight, November 3, 12:02 PM

It was nice to see where everything was happening. I hope it gets updated to more current events. I wish we had something like this when we were looking at the invasion of Kuwait.

Once again the educator in me is at work.  My little girl is asking me all the time , "If it's day here is it night on the other side of the world?"  Now I can show her.

Great spatial representation of time and time zones, which is a weirdly fascinating topic for my students.
