Efforts to make Quebecers feel more at home in Canada through bilingualism and biculturalism: When Francophones began to vocalize their frustration with their situation in Canada, the government of Canada made efforts for Quebecers to feel more comfortable through bilingualism and biculturalism. In 1963, the government hired the Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism to examine the situation and make recommendations on how to improve it. In order to address the problem, The Official Languages Act came into effect on September 9th, 1969 which gave English and French identical status in the government of Canada, making them both official languages by law. The cause of the Act was due to the fact that Francophones had a number
The Canadian Constitution is the fundamental documents that help to guide the Canadian people and govern the different governments throughout Canada. These documents were created to unite the country together during its time of confederation along with helping to create unity for any of the new provinces that would continue to join the confederation of Canada up until the late 1990s. For many Canadians, however, it has begun to seem as though these once unifying documents are now creating more of a divide around the country rather than unification; this divide can often be seen throughout many of the Quebec separatist movements that have occurred over generations. This creation of a divide across the country, mainly in Quebec, has shown that
It caused Britain to consider the people’s opinions and assign someone to see what was going on. The Durham report stated that they should give more power to the people living in Lower Canada and Upper Canada and changed them into the province of Canada. It pushed Canada more toward confederation. If the Rebellions of 1837 and 1838 hadn’t happened, confederation might have happened later and then the US could’ve taken over some parts of what could’ve been Canada. Rupert’s Land could’ve been bought by the US and now more and more of Canada would be under US
The events in American history have also affected Canada from a political perspective, which lead to the Democracy that is present today. Another way the U.S. has affected Canada is from a military perspective because Americans are quick to jump to war and Canada has had to help control them which lead to them being peacekeepers. The United States helped mold the Canadian identity by being both a threat and support to the nation; this will continue into the 21st century but Canada will keep it’s unique identity. A country 's culture can be seen as interchangeable with identity; in Canada there is evidence of American culture everywhere.
The idea of America’s melting pot opposes Canada’s cultural mosaic. These two metaphors helps in understanding of the differences between Canadian and American societies. They emphasize the different relationships to the various minorities living in the countries. Canada’s identity is different from America’s, because it boasts a cultural mosaic. Canada’s identity has been shaped by our unique history.
Did you know that The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms was set in place in 1982? The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms is set in place to help protect the individual rights of Canadians. Within the Charter, Canadian citizens have many rights and freedoms, for example, the right to express their opinion, vote, move freely around Canada and to be free from discrimination. If the government enacts legislation to refute these rights and freedoms, as Canadians, we are able to take the issue to the Supreme Court of Canada to fight for our rights. Democratic rights give you the right to vote for members of the House of Commons and the provincial legislature.

As a result of the successful offensive at Vimy Ridge, other Allied nations now saw Canada as their equal in terms of military skill. The Canadians had demonstrated immense militaristic skill at Vimy Ridge, which is a major part of foreign affairs as a country must be able to defend itself, which gave Canada grounds to argue for more power. Though Canada would not gain control of her foreign policy until the Statute of Westminster, Canada would now be able to negotiate for more power
Canada is considered a representative democracy because it instead elects representatives to represent the public. This now means that technically that the public should hold all power, and that the representatives should have equal power and no one can be above another. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case in the majority of Canada’s legislature.
C. Discuss two inherent risks associated with launching the new products and/or services to a global market and how to minimize these risks. HG Clinic should conduct a SWOT or Strength, Opportunity, Weakness and Threat analysis of these two services that the clinic wants to bring to Manitoba, Canada. The results of the SWOT would help identify the risks associated with launching the new product in a global market. The first risk that HG Clinic has determined is the need for the services.

Our current prime minister is making some wise decisions, he is continuing to have the military focused on peacekeeping and security, this will make Canada safer in the long term, and promotes peace.

Political relies on our society and has to adapt to our needs to be able to reach to those of us in the
Before the Constitution, Canada was not entirely an independent country. This is because Britain had the power to change and adjust the constitution whenever they wanted. This meant to become independent, they had to patriate the constitution from Britain. It originally was called the British North American Act however due to the adjustment of the act the name changed. Canada had many problems that needed fixing and their independency is what let them add and adjust the rules to make Canada a better place for all people.
These separate verdicts had come long before it was even appealed to the Supreme Court. Zuneras’ religious freedom was protected by the courts of Canada, so we can infer that across the country in smaller cases, freedom of religion is being protected, as courts of Canada deem injustices and rulings against anything of religious relation as a violation of the Charter. This supportive decision making has made Canada an
