Problems of Population Overcrowding
The day when population of GTA reach its maximum may be just around corner. Where and why are people concentrated in GTA? Most people tend to live in cities rather than sub-urban areas due to amenities, job opportunities, infrastructure and educational facilities. Also, immigrants are the major reason why the population overcrowded in cities. According to the Government of Ontario, over the past
20 years, the target range of immigrants has been increased gradually. For example, the target-range of immigrants was 280,000 to 320,000 in 2017 and 260,000 to 285,000 in 2016. These numbers are about
0.75 per cent of total population in Canada each year. (Ministry of Finance, 2007). These factors cause population overcrowding in GTA and it may lead to several problems such as traffic jams, housing bubbles and the rise in the homeless rate. These problems can be solved by moving infrastructure, regulating using a car once a week and implementing training programs.
These days, some people believe that traffic jams occur more often than before. The Toronto
Transit System is slowing down due to heavy traffic. Statistics Canada stated that the number of vehicles registered in the Control Vehicle System is 18,608,297 in 2005. But, in 2017, the number of vehicles registered in Ontario is 11,948,296, which is almost two-third of number in 2005. (Statistics Canada, 2017).
