1 Human Geography & Urban Systems

2 Developed along waterways Settled before survey system implemented Long, thin farms Heritage Law – owners had to divide land amongst offspring

3 Pros – Excellent soil conditions – Access to river ways – Narrow – lower taxes – Close to neighbours Cons – Narrow lots hard to work – Land became small and unworkable when divided amongst offspring

4 Occurred after survey system was in place Based on road and railways – no longer dependent on water Concession Roads are parallel to waterway, and side roads are perpendicular

5 Pros – Excellent soil for agriculture – Access to roadways – Easier access to land Cons – Further from neighbours

6 Land was surveyed before settlement occurred Land divided into 36 sections and each section divided into 4 quadrants A family would get one quadrant – approx. 64ha in size

7 Pros – Land was well suited for modern farm machinery Cons – Soil was less fertile - needed larger farms – Resulted in farm consolidation – Some distance between neighbours

8 Settlement within other areas of Canada based on two main reasons. 1. Resource-Based Settlement settlement a result of a product or resources these included fishing, forestry, mining, and recreation Occurred in Atlantic Maritimes, Boreal Shield, Boreal Plain, Montane Cordillera, Pacific Maritimes

9 2. Service-Based Settlement Often based on transportation Provides a variety of services which are needed by people in lightly populated areas These may included gas stations, motels, post offices, restaurants

10 Movement towards urbanization Movement to commercial farming Technology is advancing farming practices Fewer services provided within rural regions Increased costs for goods and services Less rural areas as a result of urbanization
