PART-I US-Canada: Since many years, US-Canada trade has been the cornerstone for Canada’s economic development. Canada began its trade with the US in 1920s when rapid urbanization in the US led to huge demand in wood and other forestry products. In the 1920s and 1930s, pulp production increased steadily with over 90% of the produce being exported to the US. In 1925, the opening of the Panama Canal increased the exports of lumber from British Columbia to eastern U.S. markets, which dramatically increased the netbacks received for lumber produced in British Columbia (Statistics, Canada, 2012). Post world war, rapid expansion in the US industrial capacity was accompanied with rapid growth in the Canadian economy as well.
Research Report on the importance of adult literacy in Canada As our society relies more heavily on high technology and human capital, the significance of Canadian citizens’ literacy gradually emerges. Literacy refers to “the ability to understand and employ printed information in daily activities at home, at work and in the community – to achieve one’s goal, and to develop one’s knowledge and potential.” (Literacy Skills for knowledge Society, 4) The most profoundly, literacy has become an important issue for business and labor. Adult literacy in Canada directly reflects our nation’s economic performance, as workplace literacy is the key factor contributing to the continuous development of Canada’s knowledge-based economy. The Challenges
Situation Analysis - Strengths It is always vital for any business to recognize its core competencies and build a successful business foundation around them to ensure maximum success. The same can be said for the newly emerging Nordstrom in the Canadian market. Nordstrom just like any company has its many strengths which make them successful in the fiercely competitive retail market today. As we are all incorporated in a present society where consumers are much more socially aware of different causes and concerns than ever before, this translates into a huge responsibility for many of today's distinguished brands and companies. Nordstrom has integrated many distinct social models and programs in its everyday operations.
Stephen Castles makes a number of arguments in his article, The International Politics of Forced Migration, however I will be focusing on one. I will focus on his argument that policy makers have implemented policies that attract mainly high skilled workers, and are unwelcoming to unskilled workers and their families. I agree with the Canadian immigration policy which favors highly skilled workers and consider it an essential tool for maintaining Canada’s economic growth and prosperity. Further,
According to Schiller, “when we borrow funds from abroad, we increase our ability to consumer, invest, and finance government activity” (Schiller 263). Many people are for external financing because it allows our real income to exceed the production possibilities curve. This meaning that the government can fund both public and private sectors without cutting back on funds for either. In opposition, there are people against external financing because it serves only as a temporary solution. Foreign investors will not hold onto their bonds forever because they will want to get cash from them in order to purchase more goods and services.
Introduction As society advances more attention being placed on cultural policy in both the public and political sectors with changes implemented to keep up with the advancements—many of which are brought about by rapidly changing technology (Rabinovitch, 2007). The presence of a diverse and complex mixture of British Canadians, French Canadians, Aboriginal peoples as well as Europeans has also contributed to these changes. The Canadian cultural policy has played a vital role in the maturity of Canada’s heritage and in achieving a cohesive, all inclusive cultural infrastructure. Because of this diverse population, the government has supported mass culture since the 19th century, through introduction of various cultural policies. The main
Without Canada participating in all of these World Affairs, Canada might not have had the chance to prove themselves worthy of being an independent nation. Canada’s actions in all of these events made it truly possible for us Canadians to live free and govern ourselves. As said by Pierre Trudeau, “Our hopes are high. Our faith in the people is great. Our
Let me start by saying that the Liberal Party of Canada is very much interested in encouraging immigration of skilled workers; and therefore our first priority on the issue of immigration would be to speed up the recognition of foreign credentials and prior work experience. In four years from now, immigration is expected to account for the entire net growth of Canada’s workforce. As of today, the door to immigrations from around the world is open. If elected, the Liberal Party of Canada will start to elevate the standard of possible immigrants in order to meet Canada’s workforce needs. However, at the same time, we need to improve our social and economic incorporation of new Canadians, including recognition of their professional credentials,

During the mid-nineteenth century through the beginning of the twentieth century, America went from being an agrarian rural society to an urban industrial one. With this shift, America experienced an explosive economic growth. By 1913, the nation was producing one third of the world’s industrial outcome. America started to become a more industrial nation since it was enjoying abundant natural resources, a growing supply of labor, an expanding market of manufactured goods, and the availability of capital for investment. The federal government played an important part as well since it promoted constructions by granting land to companies and using the army to remove the Indians from western lands desired by many.
