CGW 4UI  Canadian and World Issues

Canadian and World Issues (CGU 4UI) is often called “World Issues” for short because the focus of the course is to look at major world issues facing Canadians and people worldwide.  Some global topics include:  population impacts, human rights, poverty, sweatshops/child labour, aid and trade, resource use, availability of food, political conflicts, terrorism etc. Where do Canadians fit in this interdependent and inter-connected world?  What is our role in these issues?  Are we part of the problem or part of the solution?  This course will help to broaden your understanding of these issues while developing your critical thinking skills and further improving your mapping and geographical skills.
