How Vancouver Connects to the Larger World Weather Patterns Immigration Biome Education Population
Natural Hazards Credits Vancouver is a temperate climate since we have rainfalls that falls throughout the year and have small fluctuations in temperature. The following information was taken from a Statistics Canada report on Canada's demographic situation between 2002 and 2004, and from 2001 census data by Statistics Canada, with some information from Citizenship and Immigration. Vancouver is located in a temperate rainforest biome. The characteristics of a temperate rainforest are;
between 200cm and 350cm of rain annually
annual temperature above 0 degrees in winter and around 20 degrees in summer due to the nearby ocean
The more endurable winters and summers make Vancouver a favorable place to live. Avalanches - when a layer of snow collapses and slides downhill. Caused by a steep hill, a snow cover, a weak spot in a snow cover, and a trigger. Frequently occurs in the mountainous areas Public Schools - Vancouver has: 74 elementary schools, 17 elementary annexes, 18 secondary schools, 7 adult education centers, 2 Vancouver Learn Network schools, all which include 18 French immersion, a Mandarin bilingual, a fine arts school, gifted, and Montessori.

Geraldine Gatdula Location: Temperate climate occurs between the latitudes of 40º and 60º, north and south of the equator.

Place: There are two types of temperate climates: maritime and continental. Maritime Climate is influenced by oceans which brings
steady temperatures throughout the four seasons. Continental climate
is more inland, for examples: around the mountain ranges, making the
summer hotter and the winter colder. Human- Environment Interaction: People adapted to the climate by wearing clothing suitable for the weather. Also, people built heaters in their homes to keep warm during the winter or a air conditioner to keep cool in the summer. Movement: The temperate climate holds 7% of the world's land surface and because of the mild climates and a good rain supply, people choose to move to these places as it was easier to adapt to and temperate climate are home to four-tenths of the world's population. The Top 10 countries of origin for immigrants to Canada between 2001 and 2006:
China - 155,105
India - 129,140
Philippines - 77,880
Pakistan - 57,630
United States - 38,770
South Korea - 35,450
Romania - 28,080
Iran - 27,600
United Kingdom - 25,655
Colombia - 25,310 Top 10 source countries for immigrants coming to Canada (up until 1981):
United Kingdom
Countries of the former Yugoslavia Between 2001 and 2006, Canada admitted 1.1 million immigrants. For the first time in 75 years, one in five Canadian residents were born outside the country. Canada's per-capita immigration rate is roughly double that of the United States. Where do they go? In 2006, new immigrants lived in:
Ontario: 52.3 per cent
Quebec: 17.5 per cent
British Columbia: 16.0 per cent
Alberta: 9.3 per cent
Manitoba: 2.8 per cent
Other provinces and territories: 2.1 per cent

Between 2001 and 2006, 68.9 per cent of immigrants ended up in Canada's largest cities: Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal. 447,900 chose to settle in Toronto.
165,300 chose to settle in Montreal.
151,700 chose to settle in Vancouver.

Those headed to Toronto tend to come from India and China. Immigrants to Montreal tend to come from Asia and the Middle East, specifically China, Lebanon and Pakistan. Immigrants to Vancouver tend to come from China and India. The temperate rainforest biome is small in terms of are covered n the world making it very unique. The main stretch of this habitat is along the northwestern coast of North America from northern California though southern Alaska. Temperate rainforest can also be located in Chile, Australia and New Zealand as well as a few other places. Vancouver is made more beautiful due to the plant life characterized by temperate rainforest, this includes the famous Douglas fir and red cedar as well as indian paintbrush. Plant life such as the aforementioned create popular Vancouver tourist destinations such as Pacific Spirit Park and Stanley Park, among others. The wildlife also associated with temperate rainforest make Vancouver a good place to come in order to research wildlife. As mentioned before there many plants but what is even more unique is the many types of fungi found on trees. Apart from plants there are also many animals unique to the temperate rainforest that are interesting. These include the;
Blue Grouse
Clark’s Nutcracker
Many types of slugs including the well known Banana slug Earthquakes - Earth's tectonics are always in constant slow movement, which causes small or sometimes major earthquakes. Flood - can happen anytime of the year due to heavy rainfall, which causes rivers to flood, rapid melting of a thick snow pack, or more rarely, the failure of a natural or man-made dam. Landslides - downward movement of rock and/or loose sediment. In the Lower Mainland, this mostly happens because of heavy rainfall or human activities. Wildfires - hot weather during the Summer cause forests in B.C. to catch on fire. also sometimes because of careless human activity. Severe Storms = Thunderstorms, hail, blizzards, ice storms, high winds and heavy rain can develop quickly and threaten life and property. Private Schools - there are more than 46 private schools that educate approximately 10% of students in the city. There are five public universities in the Greater Vancouver area, the largest being UBC and SFU, with a combined enrolment of more than 80,000 undergraduates, graduates, and professional students 35% being international. UBC consistently ranks among the 40 best universities in the world and SFU ranked as the best comprehensive university in Canada There are more than 50 colleges, institutes, and hair schools in Vancouver.
