Livable Communities

There were three types of rural settlement patterns where people lived.the first one was the long lots of Southern Quebec.The second one was  the concession system of  Southern Ontario and the last one was the section system of the Prairies. Most of the settlement was based on areas near water during the 1800's. Since there were not many intersections and the villages went along the road the villages were sometimes linear shaped. The long lots of Southern Quebec were made along  waterways. Living in the long lots had many advantages  like good soil, access to waterways and neighbours .The section system of the Prairies had a different system that the land was divided into 36 sections and each section was divided video into 4 quadrants . Then one family  would get one quadrant.
