The manufacturing business is a great example of this, “manufacturing in the U.S. grew by 250,000 jobs after NAFTA”(Marketplace). NAFTA has had a beneficial effect on the automotive business, “NAFTA helped the U.S. auto industry survive”(Hanson), without the help of this trade agreement cars would be produced at a much higher opportunity cost. Although now, the U.S. is able to trade with Mexico and Canada who are both making car parts at a lower price while still producing efficiently, “The U.S. auto industry designed a very efficient production network that spanned the U.S., Mexico and Canada.”(Hanson). The trade agreement made products from Mexico and Canada cheaper to import.,“NAFTA increased farm exports because it eliminated high Mexican tariffs”(The Balance). Finally, The North American Free Trade Agreement has caused the U.S. economy to “boost” as much as “.5% each year” (The Balance).
I think if you will try that thing you start to be Canadian a little bit. You will not want to leave this country .I think that if you will try their traditions you must to show yours country traditions. It will be ok if every tourist will share his country traditions with people from other country, because only after that almost every people will know about other countries more things that they know now. I think that Canada is a country for life, because you can consider rest with your
Another big benefit that USA obtained after signing NAFTA was that they stepped up their foreign direct investments. Since NAFTA was signed US direct investment in Canada and Mexico tripled to 450 billion dollars, this also helped boost profits for US businesses by giving them more opportunities to develop, and markets to explore. Even though NAFTA benefited the US extremely, it also gave several disadvantages to their country. For example, many US jobs were lost due to the NAFTA
(United States, Canada, and Mexico) Four reasons to keep NAFTA and not to get rid of it is because since the start of NAFTA trade has been quadrupled, lowered prices of that product for the consumers, increased economic growth, and has created jobs. NAFTA creates opportunities and saves not just the country money but also the consumers. Between 1993-2017, trade between the three members has quadrupled from $297 billion to $1.17 trillion. That has boosted economic growth, profits, and jobs for all three countries. It also has lowered
Immigration is great for Canada, it has opened up new doors and has created an astonishingly multicultural country to live in. It is said that Canada doesn’t really have a food, and that’s because instead of just having “Canadian food”, we have food from all around the world.We have so many different types of cuisine available, Indian, Italian, Korean, Chinese, German, Ukrainian, just to name a few. The food comes from different cultures and represents the fact that we are multicultural. For example, even here in small town, Alberta, we have Chinese, Greek, Japanese, Italian, Vietnamese, and so many more. Another great thing about immigration is that it has provided a way for two cultures to come together and to learn about each other.When people come as immigrants, they can teach us many things like their way of life, who they are, what they believe in, etc.
Canada has a little piece of almost every culture in the world, shown through the large amount of people moving to Canada from every continent in the world. The multitude of cultures is displayed through the plethora of festivals held throughout the country every year, such as the Folk Fest, Edmonton Food Festival, Heritage Festival and the International Film Festival, all bringing in various cultures and traditions from around the world. Canada has all of these festivals due to the large amount of immigration that was even shown in Anita Rau Badami’s essay my Canada, when she and her husband had moved from India to Vancouver. Canada is one if not the most desirable countries to immigrate to, not only for the living conditions but because of the ability to keep your culture and not have to assimilate to a “Canadian” culture. Thanks to immigration Canada has become a great model country to look at for cultural diversity and cultural acceptance that any country can look at and try to model in their own
As Robertson Davies stated, “ Canada is not going to have a national literature in the mode of those European lands where a long history has bound the people together, and where a homogeneous racial inheritance has given them a language, customs, and even a national dress of their own.” 2 We need to look at the work of Canadian authors who have come here from different backgrounds. Connecting with our multicultural student body is really important! As Canadians, we are lost in a sea of international influences – we hardly know who we are. And we do this without realizing it. ‘What is a Canadian?
NAFTA took effect in January of 1994.Its main purpose is to increase the agriculture trade and investment among the three countries. According to the department of agriculture, Mexico lost over 900,000 farming jobs in the first decade of NAFTA. ( McKenzie, 2015 ). Before NAFTA people of Mexico grew corn and was able to support their family and country economy. Shortly after NAFTA cheap American corn came pouring in form the borders, which caused a major effect on families that were working in farms in Mexico.
The flight took off at 7am. The flight was long and boring, but luckily we grabbed some brochures beforehand about Canada, from the travel agency, to entertain ourselves. We learned that Canada is located in the northern hemisphere, in North America. The country borders with The United States of America. It is one of the biggest countries in the world when measuring by land mass, second only to Russia.
