The U. S. accepts less than half of one percent of the refugees in the world, while Canada has accepted more than double the number of refugees compared to America. While there is not enough support for protecting refugees who have escaped the war and the inhumanity of the Islamic State in Syria and surrounding areas, the Obama administration has taken a small step by raising the number of accepted refugees to 110,000 by the end of 2017. A few of the internationally recognized human rights being violated are the right to seek asylum and freedom from movement; right to liberty and security of the person, how asylum seekers are treated within the intended country of refuge; The legal instruments that would be relevant to the topic of
Gladwell can persuade his readers to believe that 10,000 hours is the perfect number. He uses a few successful studies to show that this concept has been proven several times. Gladwell even shows some evidence that prodigies or people with natural talent are rare using an excerpt from the psychologist, Michael Howe. Gladwell does discuss the fact that people born later in the year are less likely to be a professional which is backed by studying rosters for the Czech and Canadian sports teams. They found that almost all the athletes were born before September 1st.
Since parents tend to have limited English language skills, the communication between school and parent is limited. (Huffcut 34). Hmong parents who do not speak English insist that their children communicate in their native language and keep up Hmong traditions (Vang, F. 4). First generation Hmong American college students do not perform as well as other students because of language barrier too. Students whose parents are illiterate in English or their primary language are more likely to be underachievers in school (Vang, C. 10).
Despite the hardship, education was not abandon by the community there. They are fortunate enough to be provided with a local school and the fees are also manageable but, the syllabus is a bit peculiar. Instead of learning more about their own country, the students have to learn solely about French, their invaders’ home. This happens because the teachers do not get to choose what to teach to their communities. The Europeans are in charge of what they want the students to know and learning about their country seems to be better for ideologies dispersion purposes.
Some things that may have been unthinkable just 10 years earlier became a reality. “The birth rate fell below the replacement level for the first time ever, and a more liberal attitude toward birth control manifested itself.” (text 3). Birth control emerged as an option for couples, a choice that, just a few years earlier, was largely frowned upon and in certain situations considered blasphemous. Although the effects of the 1930s were primarily negative, some positive societal changes arose. Social change that may have been unthinkable became a reality after extreme circumstances came into play.
Also, this means that they won 't take up as much land in America as the English do. They will leave some land for the natives, so they can share the amount of area they own. Secondly, the French get along relatively well with the Native Americans. They have even married Native Americans and started to raise families with them in America. This shows that the French won 't fight or go against the natives.
Canada’s Position Regarding Immigration Among the world’s most accepting countries for immigrants, Canada offers residency to approximately 250,000 immigrants per year. These immigrants account for more than 20% of Canada’s population and contribute to the country 's ethnicity and workforce. Historically, Canada has always accepted immigrants, with the initial purpose of expansion. Though the country originally denied applicants that were not European in origin, Canada eventually changed this policy in 1976 and became the “open arms” country that it is today. In fact, according to the 2006 UN Report on International Migration and Development, Canada is ranked number seven out of twenty-eight countries that host 75% of all immigrants.
• Is racial diversity and gender a hindrance or benefit to organizational culture? In 1991, there was an increase in non-standard work in industrialized nation like Canada. There are mountain of empirical evidence that most female opted for this kind of work in the 20th century (Beechy and Perkin1987;Elson ; Kainer 1998). An encouraging report from Statistics Canada in 2011, noted that women now comprise slightly less than half of the employed labor force (48.0%). Geometrically progressing from non-standard work to 10 broad occupational categories.
After approximately four decades, the practice of multiculturalism needs to be re-evaluated. Even though the policy has good intentions and has made progress, there are still unresolved problems. The goal of multiculturalism is to create unity, but it may accentuate the differences between cultures and individuals (Kirova, 2008, 116). Allowing for diversity can also be hard, as individuals struggle to belong to both their heritage culture and the dominant culture of Canada. Furthermore, racism has not been eliminated nor do individuals have equal chances.
Introduction: When we think about culture, we automatically associate it with all of the stereotypes that are known. However, many of us never actually take the effort to find out the true culture of a place, which is why when we go to other countries we are clueless as to the culture and its practices. I believe that it is important to learn about the culture and any relevant information about a country before going there, which is why I have decided to look into the culture of the country Canada and its social practices. The country of Canada is in the continent of North America and it is well known for the friendly culture and open minded citizens. A general description of the culture: Previously, the culture of Canada throughout the country was heavily influenced by the British and the French and their own indigenous people [Loue, S; Sajatovic, M; 2011].
