Transcript of St. Lawrence Lowlands and The Great Lakes

St. Lawrence Lowlands and
The Great Lakes

This regions fair climate allows many people, animals, and the economy to strive. Many of St. Lawrence Lowlands' natural resources are based on the climate in the area and the resources are huge parts of the economy. If, for example the climate was much like the North's climate then the output of natural resources would be extremely low.

Economic Factors
Current Events
This region is a very diverse industrial region. Some of the biggest industries in this region are:
Pulp and paper
Natural Resources
Rich soil
Land Formation
>most known are great lakes: Lake Huron, Lake Ontario, Lake Michigan, Lake Erie, Lake Superior
> Niagara Falls with 2,832 cubic meters of water flowing over every second
>area formed by glaciers

Environmental Problems
Moraines are layers of soil, rock and material left from melting glaciers. They can pick up anything from boulders to grains of sands.
Eskers are long ridges or mini mountains that can reach up to 50 meters. Formed by glaciers
>the average winter temperature: -3*C to -9*C
>average snow fall of 200-300cm all winter
>Spring is the driest season
>Summer is the wettest with 75-100 mm with an average temp. of 21*C
>regular humidity year round
>no extreme weather patterns

The St. Lawrence Lowlands region of Canada is located in southern Quebec and is also located in southern Ontario.
oak trees, walnut, spruce, maple, hemlock, sassafras and tobacco plants. These many plants grow in this land because the soil is very fertile.
white spruce, white birch, black spruce, jack pine, balsam fir which makes up most of the total forest
tobacco, peaches, cherries, grapes , apples, hay and vegetables such as carrots, corn, onions, beets, peas and beans.
spruce tree
balsam fir
white birch
Animal Life
Plan 2014 is the I.J.C.'s plan to control the flow and regulation of Lake Ontario and St. Lawrence River. They are all waiting for the American and Canadian Federal Governments to approve as soon as possible. Scientists have researched and found many benefits to this plan.
Environmental Problems
Ford Motor Company is spending $700 million to retool its assembly plant in Oak ville, Ontario, to expand and improve its manufacturing capability and meet the rising global demand for the company's automobiles.
Ontario's unemployment rate: 8.1
Quebec unemployment rate: 8.4
Global warming is
destroying plants and
habitats for migrating
animals, because the
heat is evaporating the water in the lakes, decreasing the wetland areas on lake shores.

The industries of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence region have a lot to do with its natural resources. Because water and rich soil are abundant, the farming and agriculture industries thrive. The minerals in this area promote the mining business while the sources of the natural water resources promote most of the tourism. Climate also affects a few of the industries, such as tourism, farming and agriculture.
Canada's smallest economic region
named Canada's "industrial heartland"
Many of this countries banks, trust companies, and insurance firms have head offices in the great lakes/ st.lawrence region
also named "economic engine of Canada"
Most of Canada's banks trust companies and insurance firms have head offices in this region.
Largest consumer market in the country
Because of industrialization lots of pollution
The amount of wealth concentrated in this region still creates tension across Canada today.
Without news reports and radio stories or even the internet gossip how would the world know what's going on around them.
- Climate and Economic factors
Without plants, animals would not have food and we - as people - will be very limited to resources and nutrition needed. Farmers would go out of business and economically fail.
