The Arts

 

 

Family Structure- The combination of relatives that make up the family. So like two parents and a child, or one parent and a child, etc.

We need to know to understand what a family structure really is and how it works.

 

Literacy- The ability to read and write

We need to know because it is important part of the education in Canada, and they have one of the highest literacy rates in the world.

 

Health Care - The maintenance and improvement of physical and mental health, especially through the provision of medical services.

We need to know this to realize that healthcare doesn’t necessarily take care of all things we always think. Explains the basics of a big deal for Canada.

The majority of the population lives in the southern part of Canada. This connects to our last study because the northern part of Canada is in the higher temperate region and a small part of the polar region. This causes cold weather and determines where people want to live.
