Canada has over time been attracting a high number of immigrants each year. This number has also been increasing each year (Reitz, 2005). About 20% of the country’s population is made up of foreigners. Based on the data from the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, the annual immigration flow of the country is now one of the highest among the OECD members. For example, in the year 2011, the country received some 249,000 new immigrants, which was more than the number it received in 2010 (281,000).
This dilemma that is so big it sparks controversy over the news agencies and politics, could easily be solved by making people in Central America more aware that Canada wants more people as it’s aging population demands for a new workforce to build up the country. What is this problem?
Immigration is great for Canada, it has opened up new doors and has created an astonishingly multicultural country to live in. It is said that Canada doesn’t really have a food, and that’s because instead of just having “Canadian food”, we have food from all around the world.We have so many different types of cuisine available, Indian, Italian, Korean, Chinese, German, Ukrainian, just to name a few. The food comes from different cultures and represents the fact that we are multicultural. For example, even here in small town, Alberta, we have Chinese, Greek, Japanese, Italian, Vietnamese, and so many more. Another great thing about immigration is that it has provided a way for two cultures to come together and to learn about each other.When people come as immigrants, they can teach us many things like their way of life, who they are, what they believe in, etc.
As a matter of fact, most people come in Canada to escape from suppression, and they wish they have better life and freedom in Canada. They did not come to Canada just to make money. Therefore, people should acknowledge them as members of Canadian without a suspicious look at them. Secondly, rights, responsibilities and pride should be prioritized rather than racial backgrounds. According to the Ishaq (2015), even though there is still being existence prejudice against other races, but Ishaq participates in social business in accordance with her beliefs without any boundary, and enjoys normal life in each position such as mother and social members.
A country 's culture can be seen as interchangeable with identity; in Canada there is evidence of American culture everywhere. Canada can be seen as a civic nation because Canadians come from many different backgrounds but choose to live together under similar political beliefs and values.This has allowed Canadian culture to be very diverse. In spite of this diverseness majority of the culture comes from the U.S. Most movies, T.V. shows, magazines, and radio content was made in the
Emphasis on maintaining and attracting immigrants stems from “facing the demographic reality of declining birth rates and population aging” (Satzewich and Liodakis 2017, 97). Therefore, attracting immigrants is essential to the prosperity of Canada, and it is in the countries best interest to provide adequate opportunity for integration of diverse cultures into Canadian society. Counties such as Japan, which also experience a low fertility rate, have suffered demographically and economically from a desire to maintain a homogeneous
Although we faced many things, we are still here after 150 years of assimilation, racism, and genocide. Canada is celebrating 150 years of confederation, yet our ancestors have been here over 130,000 years. We should be careful not to always look at the negative side of things, especially when we have so much to be thankful for. We are still here and we are still strong, and that’s all that
As Robertson Davies stated, “ Canada is not going to have a national literature in the mode of those European lands where a long history has bound the people together, and where a homogeneous racial inheritance has given them a language, customs, and even a national dress of their own.” 2 We need to look at the work of Canadian authors who have come here from different backgrounds. Connecting with our multicultural student body is really important! As Canadians, we are lost in a sea of international influences – we hardly know who we are. And we do this without realizing it. ‘What is a Canadian?
The Canadians are different from other, but they always ready to portion our principles that make Canada a companionable, peace loving and protect society in which to live. And one more thing Canada has one symbol that is the maple leaf. Why Study In Canada Students are mostly select Canada because a solid education and a definite worldwide knowledge is the authority for their inspiring and successful futures. The conditions, affordability and popular research opportunities are impotent determinant in this conclusion. The Canada University campuses side to side proposal international environments, beautiful spaces and friendly people.
Example 1 - Overview Canada is the first multicultural and multi-ethnic country that has prospered over the last half a century. They adopted the latter and were the first country to have implemented multiculturalism as an official policy in 1971, which was in response to immigration (Spoonley et al., 2005, 89). The government and the community have taken strides in integrating people into their society, and also urges them to take an active role in aspects of their social, cultural, economic and political affairs. But to do so, they have had a fair share of difficulties and obstacles to overcome. Positive The government of Canada has done well in managing the admission of immigrants by selectively screening their capabilities to match them with labour market gaps and provides community programmes that would help them settle in.
