Canada is viewed as a mixed economy because not only the government in Canada makes choices for the country but citizens also get to give their opinion about what is best for Canada. The government helps the market in many ways such as health care, environmental care, education, etc. In order to maintain the economy of Canada. In Canada people privately own the industries, and there are some industries and companies which are publicly owned by the government so citizens take their own responsibility to make smart choices, which helps both them and the country. The government also helps people in many ways, like building facilities for homeless or handicap people who aren't stable enough to take care of themselves and their families. Canada is also viewed as having a mixed economy because it combines private ownership and government control.
