...“Canada is an unknown territory for the people who live in it, and I’m not talking about the fact that you may not have taken a trip to the Arctic or to Newfoundland, you may not have explored as the travel folders have it – This Great Land of Ours. I’m talking about Canada as a state of mind, as the space you inhabit not just with your body but with your head. It’s that kind of space in which we find ourselves lost. What a lost person needs is a map of the territory, with his own position marked on it so he can see where he is in relation to everything else. Literature is not only a mirror; it is also a map, a geography of the mid. Our literature is one such map, if we can learn to read it as our literature, as the product of who and where we have been. We need such a map desperately; we need to know about here, because here is where we live. For the members of a country or culture, shared knowledge of their place, their here, is not a luxury but a necessity. Without that knowledge we will not survive.” Margaret Atwood, Survival As Atwood’s statement demonstrates, Canadian literature is concerned with place and displacement, and with the development of an effective identifying relationship between self and environs. Canada’s literature whether written in English or French reflects three main parts of Canadian experience. First, Canadian writers often emphasize the effects of climate and geography on the life and work of their people. Second...

...I think that Canada is one of the greatest places to live in the whole world and I feel very fortunate to be a Canadian citizen. Canada is a very diverse country, offers a safe and beautiful environment and its health care system is world renowned. About one-fifth of Canada’s current population is now home to foreign-born who has immigrated to Canada looking for better opportunities. Many of these ethnic origins include China, India, Pakistan, Spain, Jamaica, Portugal and so much more. Canada is now known as a “melting pot” as it has become a society of various ethnic groups, languages, religions and beliefs. Everyone in Canada is treated equally and fairly. The multiculturalism in Canada has ensured all citizens feel safe and proud of their origins. Canada is also one of the most beautiful places to visit in the world. Some great places to visit would include Vancouver, Toronto and not to mention, the peaceful national parks in the territories. Our environment is one of the cleanest and offers clean air and water. We also have a significantly low crime rate in Canada. For example, US’s murder rate is triple that of Canada’s. Finally, Canada has one of the best health care systems to ever exist. We are one of the few countries to offer free health care to all citizens. Canada’s government pays for all healthcare through taxes and this saves a lot of money for citizens every year. In other countries, citizens would have to pay for check-ups, surgeries, and more, but in......

Preliminary Analysis of the Impact of Trade with Country Xchina on Canada

Each and every state globally has specific interest in various sectors of economy that promotes trade with the other country of interest depending with its capacity to supply to that country. The research completion assists to set the base for the two countries to start investigative discussions on matters of trade and economic promotion, as discussed by the leaders in the 2012 presidential meeting between the president of Canada and china. Both china and Canada are big trading countries. Both countries have a past history of integral trade as well as future potential economic growth. Research indicates that china is currently Canada’s second largest trading partner, whereas on the other hand, Canada is placed thirteenth among china’s top trading partners globally (Zhang, 2009).

...Background Canada was a simple solution for me, easily because I'm a recluse and I haven’t been outside of the United States. Being so geographically close to the United States, it comes as an easy choice and the language barrier is obsolete which makes transitioning easier. Geographically, Canada sits right above and next to the United States with Greenland and Iceland flanking it's eastern borders. I wanted to do business with a country that has the same ideology as myself while not having a language barrier. I'd have to say, being able to speak English without a translator is a major plus. The other main language of Canada is French which is mostly spoken in Quebec. According to Google public data, Canada has a little over 35 Million living people. Canada has a multitude of great cities: Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, Ottawa, Vancouver and Edmonton and funny enough, these cities all have teams in the National Hockey League. Speaking of Hockey, Hockey is to Canada as Rugby is to Australia. It is their pride and passion. Canada doesn't have states like the U.S. they have Provinces; Ontario, Quebec, Alberta, Manitoba, British Columbia, Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan, Newfoundland and Labrador, and New Brunswick. Their prime minister is Stephen Harper and the best thing about Canada, free health care for all. Canada has a high quality of life. Their people are cared for with national health care and they try and stay out of wars, as much as possible. Obviously it snows more the......

Canada as a Post-Industrial Country

...Canada as a Post-Industrial Country Canada’s practices of work and work values have been evolving throughout history. From the early days when agriculture dominated the economy, to the gradual transition into manufacturing and processing, we can see that Canada’s economy is always changing. More recently, we are seeing a similar shift from manufacturing to the service sector of the economy. This paper provides an analysis of Canadian society and whether we can be considered a post-industrial country. A society tends to be classified according to the degree to which different groups within that society have unequal access to rewards such as resources, status, or power. Although humans have established many types of societies over time, I will focus on defining two main categories including industrial and post-industrial society. Industrial societies are driven by the use of machines and factories to enable mass production. They are generally characterized by the use of external energy sources to increase the rate and scale of production. Industrialization brought about changes in almost every aspect of society. As factories became the center of work, urbanization became desirable and large cities emerged. Wage work and job specialization allowed more efficient means to manufacture goods, but also lead to a more complex division of labour. Post-industrial societies are based on information, knowledge, and the selling of services. This society develops at a stage when...
