Review three types of settlement patterns

Review: Three types of settlement patterns

Dispersed

Concentrated

Linear


Three groups settlements in rural canada

Three groups: Settlements in Rural Canada

Long lots of Southern Quebec

Concession system in Ontario

Section system in Southern Prairies

What are these areas? What do they look like? How where they divided?! Advantages and disadvantages

Research in groups Textbook 227-230


How much of our population lies within 600km of the us border

How much of our population lies within 600KM of the US border?

90% are living in concentrated areas along the border.

Where do the other 10 % of our population live?


Scattered settlements

Scattered Settlements

1. Resource based settlement

  • Settlement created as a result of a resource

  • Include forestry, fishing, mining and recreation

  • Occurred in Atlantic, Boreal Shield, Boreal Plain etc.

    2. Service based settlement

  • Often based on transportation

  • Provides a variety of services which are needed by people in lightly populated areas

  • Can include gas stations, motels, post office and restaurants.

Rural depopulation

Rural Depopulation

Rural Depopulation is the decline in the population of rural areas and small communities.


Reasons for rural depopulation

Reasons for Rural Depopulation

  • Technology promotes efficiency thus fewer farms

  • Farm sizes increase and the number of farms decrease

  • Younger people are encouraged to leave for post secondary education

  • Due to small populations rural communities do not have a wide variety or number or services so more and more businesses leave and take the jobs and companies with them.

Out-migration has become a fact of life in rural Newfoundland and Labrador. For almost every year since Confederation, the number of people leaving rural communities has far exceeded the number of those moving in. Most migrants are young adults and families with young children who move to urban centres in search of jobs or for better access to education, health care and other services. Those who remain are aging and there are often not enough year-round residents to support the maintenance of schools, churches, medical clinics, shopping centres, and other facilities residents of larger towns and cities often take for granted.

Although out-migration has long been a reality in rural Newfoundland and Labrador, it intensified during the 1990s after the collapse of the cod fishery deprived most small villages of their economic base. Between 1991 and 2001, the province's population dropped by 10 per cent – mostly due to the large-scale relocation of outport residents to other provinces and countries. Today, much uncertainty surrounds the future of rural settlements. Although tourism and small business will allow some communities to survive and even flourish, it is likely that others will eventually cease to exist.

Between 1954 and 1975, about 24,000 people abandoned more than 315 rural villages to live in large centralized communities. Although settlers expected to find employment at the mills, factories and other businesses created under Smallwood's industrialization policy, most ventures failed to generate much in the way of jobs or revenue. With unemployment no less a problem after resettlement than it was before, many rural people returned to the fishery.


Your thoughts

Your thoughts…

“Rural Canada is economically unsustainable and that is futile to try and artificially sustain rural industries such as farming and resource based activities. Young people should be encouraged to leave, that subsidies designed to develop the rural economy should be eliminated and the government’s traditional role of providing public services in rural areas should be eliminated”

Four corners- YOUR OPINION


Urban rural fringe

Urban-Rural Fringe

  • Many cities are bursting at the seams

  • Land inside the city is all used up and new developments spill out into the countryside

  • Always changing as cities continue to expand

  • Tomorrow: URBAN- City planning
