Robert’s story did not occur in isolation and is, instead, is situated in the specific social, political and economic context of the late 1940s to 1950s. By this time, World War Two (WWII) had subsided, the economy was recovering, and Canada found itself fairly well situated to accept new immigrants (Hawkins, 1988, p.99). Fuelled by the expansion of certain industries (e.g. construction), this period “saw the beginning of a significant economic boom in Canada” (Kelly & Trebilcock, 2010, p.316; Troper, 1993, p.250). Therefore, what had previously been characterized by a relatively restrictive climate for immigration, due to the fear during WWII, was gradually replaced with more “libera[l]” (Kelly & Trebilcock, 2010, p.318) immigration policies
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.). The highest number of immigrants come from the Philippines (Government of Canada, n.d.). Coming to a new country has many barriers such as social, and economical barriers. Immigration into Canada is important because the local population is getting older and the birth rate is declining
Those who don’t live or have ever been may think that Canada is a country that is not diverse maybe even monocultural, that Canada is flat full of only farmland and rural towns, that we live lives fueled by hockey and that is all that Canada is. In reality every Canadian knows it is much more it is diverse, scenic and urban. In the essay “My Canada” by Anita Rau Badami she said this about Canada “the country had been doing a slow dance for me over the nine years that I had lived here, showing me tantalizing little bits of itself every now and then.” The quote by Badami says that Canada has little charms spread throughout the country, such as the vastness and natural beauty of Lake Louise and all National Parks. Festivals in Edmonton which displays Canadian culture and a variety of other cultures from around the earth. The peacefulness of the prairies, to the
Canada, as one of the biggest immigration countries, welcomes people from all over the the world and forms a representative multicultural atmosphere in today’s society. Over these few decays, the country has always been consummating the laws to provide immigrants equal rights and freedoms, and better treatments they could receive. However, Canadian immigration laws were not unprejudiced and it eventually caused a “legal discrimination” before 1976. The legal rights of the immigrant groups have improved significantly because of the demands of developing the country, the influences of the wars, and the globalization of the world.
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. The objectives of this act can be discussed in 2 topics.. The first topic is to share the benefits of immigration, and support a prosperous economy across all regions
Canada is a very diverse country. Meaning there is are people from all over the world. Immigration is a huge part of Canada, and Canada wouldn’t be the same without it. There are a lot of people who immigrate to Canada from all over the world for many different reasons. A lot of the people who are here now, were not originally from Canada. We all have stories on how and why we came here. In this report, I will tell you the story of how my family came to Canada from Malaysia. My family’s immigration story is made up of push and pull factors, how they came, and how they adapted. This is my family’s immigration story.
Another major concern connected with overpopulation is education. Educating too many children will lead to many problems. Funds available to schools and teachers will be affected badly. But, immigrant children need to be educated; immigrants will become violent if they were uneducated. Uneducated immigrants will start committing crimes and some may start abusing drugs. This will lead to many being put to jail and could harm the American citizens as well as
The baby boom era has been an important and significant time that marked the Canadian history. Baby boomers born during post-World War 2 between the years 1946 and 1964 are people that are named such due to the exceeding number of births. There have not only been population changes but the economic conditions and long-term effects have taken place because of this. Throughout years of seeing the effect of baby boomers, we can see it has significantly impacted the Canadian society. It has impacted and is continuing to affect the Canadian society by affecting the economy, the means of long-term effect and the drastic changes in the population count.
In 2002, Canada followed Homeland Security of United States and came up with an immigration plan. The bill was called “Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.” The focus of the bill was to stop people entering Canada and seeking asylum who will endanger the safety of the Canadians. The bill introduced strict law for people who will try to put the life of Canadians at risk. The law allowed immigration to remove people from the country who may pose a threat to the country. It also allowed high financial penalties. It also give power to front line officers to deny access to people entering Canada who have a criminal record. The law also fasten the process to remove people from the country, if convicted to any crime endangering the Canadians.
Immigration is a central part of Canadian history, as it helped to establish the identity of this multicultural nation. During the course of World War One, Canada remained with the policy of
Immigration is predicted to play a substantial role for labor force and population growth in Canada by the year 2031 (Statistics Canada, 2010). Already small and medium size towns and cities are facing a lot of pressure to attract immigrant women and men for the purpose of countering the aging population (Buchlaschuk & Wilkinson, 2011).With the current figures showing a slight decline in the number of immigrant women who settle within the three largest metropolis of Canada, immigration of women is becoming an issue of concern for the medium and even small cities in Canada (Bucklaschuk, & Wilkinson, 2011). One of the major challenges faced by these cities is how to undertake the retention and integration of these new immigrant women, a concern
Indo Canadian immigration came to a near halt between 1920 and 1960 due to the World Wars and other worldwide conflicts. “In the mid-sixties, however, Canada began to transition toward a policy of multiculturalism and did away with all discriminatory immigration policies. As a direct result, within a few short years the Indian population in Canada multiplied more than 20 times over.” In the 1960’s, Canada implemented multiculturalism policies that made Indo- Canadian immigration easier. India was home to many skilled immigrants, and as a result of the new policies put in place, immigration to Canada multiplied more than 20 times. The legislation favored skilled immigrants who could speak more than one language; as a result of this, many of the potential Indian immigrants were a good fit for the Canadian immigration system. The Immigration Act of 1976 was another piece of significant legislation that represented change to Canadian immigration legislation. The act “clearly outline(d) the objectives of Canadian immigration policy, define(d) refugees as a distinct class of immigrants and mandate(d) the federal government to consult with other levels of government in immigration planning and management. The act was positively regarded as a progressive piece of legislation and it received broad social and political
Canada is well known for its diverse cultures. Immigration helps introduce many new cultures to Canada, aiding it to keep the diverse, vibrant and accepting identity that Canada currently has today (Vaughan). The reason immigration helps give Canada the identity it has today is because if Canada didn 't accept immigrants it would be less diverse and more un-inclusive.
Is Donald Trump truly all that bad for Canada? Is he indeed the worst president ever? Although many people assume he is; Donald Trump has helped Canada out, but on the same thought he has instituted protectionist policies that damaged the Canadian economy. I’m neither pro Trump nor anti Trump, but even though Donald Trump is the president of the United States, he is still effecting changes in Canada, both excellent and dreadful.
