Over the years there have been many world events and factors that have made Canada what she is today. There are many ways and things that uniquely identify Canada from other countries. Canada is considered a stable country, with her democratic government, prominent natural resources and trustworthy personality. Canada’s growth and acceptance of immigrants, celebrations of multi-cultural events and her own “homemade” attributes make her special and diverse. Canada is also known to be a just country because of our actions regarding Aboriginal people, Women rights and Japanese Canadians during WWII.
Sitting in the car I saw the sign that read “Canada Next Exit- Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal.” The car turned left and the bridge came into sight; I felt nervous of what lay across the calm and icy St. Lawrence River. I was about to leave America for the very first time and be in a place with different customs, and different beliefs, a place that wasn't home. I played hockey for a youth team in my town and the league was set up so half the teams were American and the other half was Canadian. So hockey is what ultimately brought me to Canada for the very first time.
If Quebec Referendum was successful, Quebec would not be able prosper as a country. Québec is filled with breathtaking sites, waterfalls and more, beoming it’s own country would just destroy itself if it separated. Québec is a growing country with a bright future, it has much to offer to the world, this is not possible if Québec is having troubles being its own country. If Quebec became a country, it would be chaos. Quebec as a new country will have to start fresh in this growing and complicated world.
History Culminating Reflection William K. L. Lore was an inspiration to many Canadians during his time. If I could meet him, I would ask how it felt to not only be the first Chinese Canadian to enter the Canadian civil service, but the first Chinese Canadian in the Royal Canadian Navy and in any of the British Commonwealth navies. Another question that would concern him would be, what made him study Mining Engineering, and if he was not able to study Mining Engineering, what else he would like to study. Furthermore, I would ask him about why he wanted to join the Royal Canadian Navy, as he most likely knew that people of Canada were racist and why he kept attempting to join the Royal Canadian Navy, even after he was denied entrance three times.
Quebec is a province in Canada that was founded in 1867. The nationalist movement in Quebec, also known as the Quebec sovereignty movement, is a political movement that promotes the independence of the province from the country of Canada. This conflict was between the Catholic people of Quebec, also known as Québécois, and the Protestant people of the rest of Canada. It is often referred to as The Quiet Revolution because no violence takes place. The reasons behind sovereignty were due to Quebec’s fear of losing their unique culture because of the assimilation of the rest of the country.
In the history of Quebec officially attributed by Jacques Cartier in 1534, but thousands of years before his arrival, people have crossed the frozen ground and established different communities. These people were Indigenous people, the first inhabitants of the province Quebec. Many years later, numerous explorer stopped in Quebec attempted to explore the land especially the east of Quebec. During 1535, Jacques Cartier’s second journey brought many benefits to the King of France. During this journey, he went to Stadacona (Quebec City), Hochelaga (Montreal), and finally, he stopped in Trois-Rivieres on the way back home (Fauteux, A, 2004).
n the twentieth century the Government of Canada decided to increase the number of immigrants coming into Canada, this step was taken to include individuals from countries where English was not the first language. The immigration policy led to an inflow of immigrants from all over the world. Now Canada welcomes between 240,000 to 265,000 people each year (Government of Canada, n.d.). An immigrant is a person who moves from their home country to another country for permanent residency (Merriam Webster, n.d.).

From 1945 to 1982, Canada looked to become not only trustworthy trading partners with the U.S, but trustworthy military collaborates with them. With the commencement of the Cold War, both Canada and the United States had to stop, control, and protect the North Atlantic Community from soviet attacks and the spread of communism. A way in which Canada and the United States strengthened their relations during the Cold War was through NATO. Since “The USSR pursued a policy of aggressive military expansion at home and subversion abroad,” the United States and Canada feared Soviets would impose communism on countries such as France, Italy, and Germany. As a result, a military alliance called NATO created between Canada, the United States, Britain,
Applying the characterization of “roaring” to explain the 1920s in Canada would be deceptive. The decade of the 1920s contains events and actions that directly represent its disastrous ways. Several sectors of the economy lagged behind due to natural disasters, terrorism and immigration policies. The economic and social divisions between regions and cultures became more evident than throughout the war years. Several components and stories were hidden by the decade 's accomplishments.
