How Nationalism Shaped Our Wold Nationalism has had an arguably equal effect on the world as war, depression, militarism and other worldly issues have. During both world wars nationalism was a key spark in igniting tensions between Germany and Russia, Austria-Hungary and Serbia, China and the United States, and many other nations and colonies involved in the war. The people and establishments of each country united out of pride and determination to protect their way of life.

In order to understand the acceptance of cultural diversity and integration of immigrants into Canadian society, it is crucial to ask the question of what impacts the 1971 policy of multiculturalism had on Canadian immigrants?
