Canada Natural Resources:

Canada Natural Hazards:
One of Canada’s natural hazards is the continuous permafrost in the northern portion of the country, which is a serious obstacle to development. East of the Rocky Mountains, the Arctic, Pacific, and North American interior air masses mix together. This mixing of air produces most of the country's rain and snow east of the mountains; sometimes forming cyclonic storms.
Canada Environmental Issues:
Canada has environmental issues with air and water pollution. Some reasons for the air pollution are metal smelting, coal-burning utilities, and vehicle emissions, which impact the agricultural and forest productivity. This pollution produces acid rains that severely affect and damage the country’s lakes and forests. The area ocean waters are becoming contaminated due to agricultural, industrial, mining, and forestry activities.
