Do you think in the year 2112, Canada will still be recognizable as the country it was in the twentieth century and still is today?

What do you expect to change? Do you think hockey, maple syrup, poutine, Tim Hortons, and all the other flagship Canadian things will still be around? How big will Vancouver and Toronto become?

Have some fun with this.

In 100 years Canada will just be a foot note in history,The success or failure of its remains being dependent on how the American civil war turns out.
Assuming a positive outcome it might look something like this.
Atlantic Provinces form a union to survive.Heavy dependence on USA
Quebec separated,Economically challenged
Ontario still center of the universe.No change except a few more Quebec head offices move in.
Manitoba and Saskatchewan form an alliance.successful in oil,Potash and all things to do with growing
BC and Alberta go it alone.thriving on their natural resources.
Yukon becomes part of the USA.
Nunavit will take over the rest of the North West Territories along with the Russians .For the Inuit a Major trend back to living off the land and living in harmony with natural resources.

I suspect its root cause will be an ever widening gulf between Democrats and Republicans culminating in if not civil war then some form of breakup of the country into regions that more reflect the political nature of its inhabitants.

Maybe the "blue states" can join Canada then! How would you like to have New York and New England?

I'm sure our speculation on not only Canada but N.America in general can come up with some strange alliances,NY and Quebec,,,New England and the Maritimes.. would make a nice fit i think..

A quick Google search comes up with a few possibilities.

I'm not sure but I think it will look a lot different. I don't know if anyone will separate or not but I think a lot of provinces will be split up and joined together and all so it will look much more different.

I think it will look the same province wise. I doubt the whole country will break up... despite the bickering, and east vs west battle, Canadians love their country. We are in this together.

Yeah I don't think the entire country will break up. But I think in 100 years there will be some minor changes to the province makeup and all. I think North Ontario and South Ontario may split. Atlantic Canada may all join together as one province in the future too. Who knows
