Wed., March 4, 2015

2 Types of Industry Do more Canadians work… in agriculture?
or in education?

3 Types of Industry More than three times as many Canadians work in education than in agriculture!

4 Types of Industry Do more Canadians work… in transportation
and warehousing? or in forests and mining?

5 Types of Industry More than twice as many Canadians work in transportation and warehousing than in forestry and mining.

6 Types of Industry Do more Canadians work… in manufacturing?
or in wholesale and retail trade?

7 Types of Industry More Canadians work in wholesale and retail trade than in manufacturing.

8 Types of Industry Most Canadian workers are not lumberjacks, farmers, or miners; nor are they factory workers. Instead, most Canadians have jobs in which they provide an enormous range of services. But all parts of the economy are vital…

9 3 Types of Industry 1. Primary Industries
Extracting natural resources (raw materials) from the ground or water e.g., mining, forestry, farming, fishing

10 Types of Industry 2. Secondary Industries
The processing of primary-industry products into finished goods (manufacturing) e.g., auto assembly plants, factories

11 Types of Industry 3. Tertiary Industries
Providing services rather than goods (known as service sector) e.g. healthcare facilities, stores, schools

12 Canada’s changing Economy
What has been the trend for each category over the years? Which category has changed the most? What conditions might bring about such remarkable change in economic categories?

13 Natural ResourceS PRIMARY INDUSTRIES extract natural resources from earth What are some examples? crops soil water What are they? oil Natural materials from earth that are used to support life and meet people’s needs plants rocks minerals Wildlife

14 Two Basic Categories: 1. Renewable resources:
Resources which replace themselves naturally within a few months or years Eg. Farming (crops), trees, fish

15 Two Basic Categories: 2. Non-renewable resources:
Resources which take millions of years to replace themselves – they’re gone once used Eg. Mining (minerals, metals) & Fuels (oil, coal)

16 How products are made! Example: figure skates/speed skates Primary – iron ore, coal, limestone and other metals (for steel blade) - Raw animal hide for boot Secondary – steel is then processed into the skate blades - Leather boot is created - blade is added to the skate boot VOILA! You have a pair of skates, but WAIT! You want them… Tertiary – sports store that sells you the skates

17 Where did your ____ come from?
Think about a gift you have received lately, or an item you’ve purchased for yourself. Now that you have chosen your item, think about the different industries that were involved in making that item. Using the figure skates/speed skates example, explain how your item was made.

18 “The Story of Stuff” with Annie Leonard
The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. The Story of Stuff exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world. It'll teach you something, it'll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever.
