Comparing old ontario and quebec
Transcript of Comparing old ontario and quebec
How Large Was the Population?
In 1851 the population of Ontario was about 952,000, and the population of Quebec was about 890,000, so in total the population of east and west Canada was about 1,842,000.
The diversity of the population depends on immigration rates. In 1851 the total population of east and west canada had a 0.8% visible minority.
Was Immigration an Important Factor?
In the 1850s though the immigration rate was high, the emigration rate was also quite high. however 182,000 more people migrated into Canada than left.
Today, the visible minority rates have increased to 25.9% for Ontario, and 11% for Quebec.
Comparing East and West Canada in the 1850s to Ontario and Quebec Today
In this presentation I will be comparing Canada in the 1850s to Ontario and Quebec today by comparing: Population, Immigration Rates, Visible Minority Rates, Occupations, Salary, and the characteristics that made good immigrants.
In Conclusion, the population, immigration rates, visible minority rates, number of occupations, and salaries and how much people could buy have all increased since 1850.

Comparing East And West Canada to Ontario And Quebec
What Kind of Work Did People Do?
In 1851 39.1% of the people in east and west Canada were Farmers, 35.9% were Laborers, 23.8% had other occupations, and 1.2% were privately wealthy.
Was the Population As Diverse as it is Today?
What Characteristics Made Good Immigrants to Canada in 1850?
How Much Did People Earn?
How Much Did Goods Cost?
Today, the population of Ontario is roughly 13,600,000, and the population of Quebec is roughly 8,180,000. In total, there are about 21,708,000 people in both Ontario and Quebec, that's an of almost 20 million!
The daily wages of each occupation in 1850 are listed below:
Farm Laborers $0.83
Sawmill workers $0.75
Dairy workers $0.13
congrats! u Found this reference to my previous prezi!
In 1851, goods were much cheaper than they are now but so were wages. The following chart describes the items, and their prices.
Women's work boots: $1.88
Blankets (each): $1.25
Men's Cotton shirts: $0.56
Ground Coffee (kilogram): $0.46
Butter (kilogram): $0.32
Eggs (dozen): $0.16
Bread (kilogram): $0.10
In 1850 immigrants were expected to work hard. There was no need for education because most jobs required hard labor and little education.
Today the daily wages for the jobs in the previous slide are as follows:
Farm Laborer $84
Sawmill Worker $126
Dairy worker $138.64
The following slide contains a list of items, their weight/quantity, and their price today.
Bread (kilo) $4.20
Butter (kilo) $10.06
Ground Coffee (kilo) $21.16
Eggs (dozen) $3.26
Blankets (each) $40.00
Work boots (pair) $100.00
Men's Cotton shirts $30.00
Today about 2% of employment is in agriculture, about 19% is in industry, and about 79% of employment are in service jobs.
How many could you buy?
A carpenter in 2010
can buy 3 times more bread, 4 times more butter, 27 times more coffee, 5.5 times more eggs, 3 times more blankets, 2.2 times more pairs of boots, and 2.3 times more shirts.
A dairy worker in 2010
can buy 25 times more bread, 35 times more butter, 24 times more coffee, 62 times more eggs, 50 times more blankets, 18 times more pairs of boots and 19 times more shirts.
Today, immigration is vitally important. Since 2001 almost 3/4 of Canada's population growth has been from immigration. In fact, across most of Canada's history immigration has played a growing role in population growth.
Today the characteristics that make a good immigrant are much different than in 1851. Rather than physical effort, education is required for success.
