Immigration has been and will continue to happen all around the world. There are so many reasons for people who come from different countries and ethnicities to move from country to country. The reasons why these people immigrate is either they are simply forced to, due to violence and hostility or that they are in search of a better life for them, and or their family etc. Canada being rated number one in quality of life has been a goal for people wanting to immigrate. The Immigration and Refugee Protection Act ( IRPA) was established by the Canadian government in the year 2002.
He contributed to the drafting and completion of the 72 Resolutions, a set of proposals made at the Quebec Conference in 1864. Unfortunately, he lost his seat in the Assembly alongside of many supporters of Confederation that were driven out of the office in 1865 election. He returned to the Assembly during the 1866 by-election. His 1866’s campaign was very imprecise, promoting New Brunswickers to be for and against Confederation. However, once he entered the office, he became the key figure for a creation of a new nation.
One of Canada’s strengths was its major contributions to the war such as soldiers, supplies and victories that helped Canada gain a new sense of maturity. After gaining their own Commander of Canadian Corps. in 1917, Canada was seen as being less dependent on Britain, because it was slowly starting to become its own separate nation. Canada was invited to the Paris Peace Conference and given two seats. Canada signed the Treaty of Versailles in its own right as an independent country, and the identity of Canada had changed as a result of WW1.
Liberalism is a complex and everchanging term used to describe a multitude of matters. Over the course of time, thinkers and scholars alike have shared and debated over what liberalism entails or who classifies as a liberal. Due to recent events, one might wonder how the leader of Canada’s Liberal Party fits into the picture - to what extent can newly elected prime minister Justin Trudeau be defined as a “liberal”? Ultimately, by reflecting upon the concepts of classical and social liberalism, Trudeau can be described as more of social liberal as opposed to a classical liberal, to the extent that he supports the state’s role in welfare, healthcare and education.
The way that peoples collective rights worked in the past wasn’t always through a fair system. In multiple cases, rights were given based off of appearance or status rather than one’s position. An important example of this is the First Nations history of Treaties and the Indian Act. When Europeans came to Canada, not only did they find land but a civilization with it. Multiple treaties were created between the FN’s and Europeans to help both groups so they can live in harmony.
Culture is defined as behaviours, values and beliefs shared by a group of people and passed on from one generation to another. Canada is a bilingual and a multicultural country. Canada is also known as a cultural mosaic as it allows people of many cultures to coalesce into one. Immigrates are coaxed to keep their culture and teach others about their cultures. Canada was established in 1867 by British North America act.
Canada took its first step to becoming a humanitarian nation around the 20th century… despite displaying unjustifiable actions in the past. This is shown in how Canada has regarded its First Nations groups, created its own immigration policies, and treated women in the workplace. Ever since Europeans have set foot on the Americas, they have conquered
Over the past few decades, there has been many distinct perspectives and conflicts surrounding the historical context between the Indigenous peoples in Canada and the Canadian Government. In source one, the author P.J Anderson is trying to convey that the absolute goal of the Indian Residential School system in Canada has been to assimilate the Indian nation and provide them with guidance to “ forget their Indian habits”, and become educated of the “ arts of civilized life”, in order to help them integrate into society and “become one” with their “White brethren”. It is clearly evident throughout the source that the author is supportive of the Indian residential school system and strongly believes that the Indian residential School System

One of the worst attacks was Bacon 's rebellion. About a thousand Virginians broke out of control in 1676 led by Nathaniel Bacon. They resented Berkeley 's friendly policies toward indians (Document B). Chaos swept over the Indians and the rebellion.
Aboriginal peoples in Canada, or Aboriginal Canadians, are the indigenous peoples within the boundaries of present-day Canada. They comprise the First Nations, Inuit and Métis. The descriptors "Indian" and "Eskimo" have somewhat fallen into disuse in Canada and are sometimes considered pejorative. Old Crow Flats and Bluefish Caves are some of the earliest known sites of human habitation in Canada. The Paleo-Indian Clovis, Plano and Pre-Dorset cultures pre-date current indigenous peoples of the Americas. Projectile point tools, spears, pottery, bangles, chisels and scrapers mark archaeological sites, thus distinguishing cultural periods, traditions and lithic reduction styles.
