One of Canada’s strengths was its major contributions to the war such as soldiers, supplies and victories that helped Canada gain a new sense of maturity. After gaining their own Commander of Canadian Corps. in 1917, Canada was seen as being less dependent on Britain, because it was slowly starting to become its own separate nation.

I feel like I can directly relate to the novel, especially the feeling of displacement we get living in a foreign country. Thinking about my old life before migrating to Canada, I can now see how we used to live without stress or having to struggle to fit or blend in. Living in a community that had the same believes, shared the same culture, and spoke the same language have never been seen as necessarily a privilege to me before coming here. Like the characters in the book who left their professions hoping for a better life in the first world countries, my dad too left his profession as a doctor and came to what he always viewed as the land where dreams come true and where one can perceive a successful life. However, he came to be categorized as an inexperienced/unqualified doctor for not having the standard ‘Canadian’ experience needed for him to be called a physician here.
Multiple treaties were created between the FN’s and Europeans to help both groups so they can live in harmony. Unfortunately, it wasn't very long until the two perspectives began changing their path. Even with the treaties in play, the FN’s were treated unfairly with little respect. The Europeans decided that they were in control, acting oblivious to the FN’s way of life, and began backing out of the agreements. The Europeans had a new

Neither the British nor the French had any settlers in the land but the British required the land for a place to settle their booming population and the French want to protect their economy, in the trade from the Indians. Both looked at the Ohio River lands as land which could be, as if it belonged to no one. But this was untrue as the Ohio River Indians had been living on this land for a long time. As historian Fredrick Jackson Turner claims in his ‘Frontier Thesis’ “[the] idealistic conception of vacant lands as an opportunity for a new order of things is unmistakably present” here he also describes the attitude of the French and the British by saying that “never again will such gifts [such as] free land offer themselves.” , causing the kindling of Native American discontent to
Introduction After the Red River Rebellion, the Metis received many of their demands in the Manitoba Act, but because of the scrip system, many didn’t receive the land they were promised causing them to move west into nowadays Saskatchewan. While living in the west, the Metis were losing patience with the Canadian government to gain title to their land. The government had surveyed the land out to pay for the Canadian Pacific Railway, which the Metis didn’t know, and wouldn’t give any away. The government was treating the Aboriginals cruelly; they let them starve and didn’t keep their promises to help them flourish in the western economy. The Metis had had enough with the government and decided to bring back Louis Riel from Montana.
As you can see, the War of Spanish Succession, the Seven Year War, the Constitutional Act and the Act of Union were very important events that changed the shape of our country. It shaped our country by creating conditions for Canada’s Confederation. These conditions were crucial for Canada’s Confederation because it made Canada’s Confederation possible to happen. The legacy of the past left us to speak mostly english and we get the chance to vote for people in the government. This was important because instead of us speaking english people would be speaking mostly French in Canada.
At the Somme, the factors we are examining played out on such a huge scale that their impact was felt in both Britain and Canada. The campaign was a British disaster of such magnitude that its aftermath presented the propaganda campaign with its greatest challenge. Public enthusiasm waned as the truth about the Somme slipped through the censors. Soldiers began to have even less concern for killing and more for surviving. 1916 should have begun the process of ending the war in some semblance of the way European conflicts had historically been
By forcing them to return to Europe, they ultimately forced the Jews to face impending doom. All because they didn’t fit the description of what a “Canadian” looked or acted like. Nonetheless, over time these radical and racist policies decreased and in 1967 and a points system was introduced. This allowed the elimination of racial discrimination and was more focused towards the economic interest of Canada. One reference states, Canada’s point system was in the 1967 Immigration Act which gave people with higher education or certain skills a better chance into getting into Canada… This made immigration for skilled workers easier and encouraged them to come to Canada from anyplace in the world.
Many cultures are lost because of the people of those cultures are assimilated. When a government notices loss of a crucial culture in the society because people of that culture are assimilating and adopting new culture, the government will be forced to make schools and form societies where people of the certain culture can live, study their native languages and practice their cultures and religions. The government in Canada had different plans and objectives to keep the culture alive in the country. Over the course of years, the government has built different religions places for people of different cultures. For example, they built mosques, churches and temples for the people of different cultures to visit.
