Although in recent times the discourse on social exclusion concentrates greatly on poverty and labor force participation. Social inclusion: This notion is described by a shared social experience and participation and an ample equality of opportunities and all citizens enjoying a basic level of welfare (sen , 2001:74) Brief history of multiculturalism policy in Canada In 1971, Canadian government recognized multiculturalism as a main characteristic of Canadian society through the adoption of a formal multiculturalism policy.

The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms is an effective tool to ensure and maintain a just society as it protects the innocence of people, protects and ensures past laws and states fundamental freedoms, all of which work to create a thriving society. Before the Charter, many people may argue that Canada was a free and democratic country. Canadians had the freedom of expression, equality and the principles of fundamental justice. What changed with the creation of the Charter was that rights and freedoms were given constitutional status, and judges were given the power to strike down laws that infringed on them. In 1982, most Canadians agreed that the introduction of the Charter was going to monumental.
One of the main focus of Justin Trudeau’s speech, is to promises an encouraging, bright and anticipative vision for Canada. Trudeau begins the speech with “sunny ways, my friend sunny ways. This is what positive politics can do,” implying himself as the tower of strength to Canada who would lead a brighter and more inclusive future for Canadians. Trudeau repeatedly uses words like “positive”, “hopeful”, and “optimistic” to trigger the sense of happiness and enthusiasm towards the new governing system. Furthermore, Trudeau talked about how the new government is constantly reconstructing under the needs and benefits of the whole.
Proper collective rights were established in the Constitution for Aboriginals. The protest led to awareness and acknowledgment of the initial treaties and agreements. To what extent has the federal government affirmed collective rights in the legislation over time? Canada is different than any other country, including the United States, because of our collective rights. The purpose of them is so different groups of people can have an identity.

The War Measures Act was a federal law embraced by the Parliament that gave powers to Canada’s government to keep security, defense, and order during the First World War. The War Measures Act was necessary and important as it did a great job by keeping Canada safe during the hard times and made it stronger as a nation. (The Canadian Encyclopedia) Therefore, it increased Canada’s independence and managed to remove it from being under Britain's control overtime as they were able to make their own decisions within their own grounds. Overall, The War Measures Act was an advantageous law for Canada as it gave them authority which lead to their independence as their own
The idea of jury nullification comes to represent the ability for every citizen to be protected by biased legal actors and unjust law. Therefore, citizens are able to adjudicate between the facts of law and morality, and the sense of having the ability to protect society. Jury nullification is recognized by Canada to give “the citizen’s ultimate protection against oppressive laws and the oppressive enforcement of the law.” However, by encouraging the law and legal actors to promote the use of jury nullification; the jury may use this power to benefit themselves. Thereby the jury system undermines the legal system as a whole. The history of jury nullification goes all the way back to the 1670s.
The aim of this policy in Canada consisted in breaking down discriminatory attitudes of dominant ethnic group toward non-dominant groups. It was supposed to be done by supporting ethnocultural communities in their wish to maintain their heritage cultures and, at the same time, by ensuring full participation in the larger society. The basic idea was that if people from non-dominant ethnic groups coming to, or living in, Canada got an opportunity to maintain links with their culture and simultaneously got an opportunity to participate in a larger society, both dominant and non-dominant groups would be at advantage. In other words, the fundamental goal of the policy implied enhancing mutual acceptance among all ethnocultural groups (Berry,
Canada signed the Treaty of Versailles in its own right as an independent country, and the identity of Canada had changed as a result of WW1. As a country Canada’s strengths included, gaining autonomy through persevering and showing just how mature and ready Canadians were to be in charge of their own army; and be recognized as a separate country from Britain. Another one of Canada’s strengths was how calmly autonomy was achieved after the war. Canada did not need to make a fuss about becoming their own country because it was obvious that they were already ready for that. Their proof was presented in how they planned and executed their battles, and fought alongside Britain to successfully defeat
Title: A Momentous Time in History Responsible Government Granted and the Canada’s United By: Alim Meralli- Current Events This is a time of celebration for Canada. After a long and arduous journey, we finally have responsible government and the Canada’s have been united. As we look towards the future in anticipation to what lies ahead for the new Canada, it is important to reflect on how what responsible government means, why so many people risked so much to bring it about, and the implications for our future. Responsible government is where elected politicians, chosen by the people, have control over the government. Under responsible government, everyone has the opportunity to run for elections, and have their ideas heard and taken into consideration.
Aucoin would agree with this plan because Justin is not over using his authority and is spreading the power into his parliament to make a real change in Canada while still staying within the rules and is keeping his word to Canadians. Mr. Trudeau plans or improving partnerships with provincial, territorially, and municipal governments are crucial in brining real change to Canada and the biggest relationship to fix is with Indigenous People in regards to rights, respect, co operations, and most importantly partnership. Also Justin Trudeau has committed bringing new leadership to Canada and one way he plans on doing this is by allowing more openness and transparency in government to shine the light on the government to show the people that they are there to serve the people and not themselves. Aucoin would agree with these set commitments because there is a clear objective of fixing relationships with no loopholes and he is serving for the population and not the
Canada is a democracy so the belief is in being equal and fair, thus Canada put these beliefs into effect by creating the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms using the Equality Rights section. So if the Canadian population was asked if it is reasonable for its politicians to prohibit citizens from wearing certain religious symbols, the answer would be no. On the other hand, if another country were to be asked this question the answer may
Seymour believed that another referendum was coming and that this one would result in a sovereign Quebec, which was both a legal and justified outcome. Seymour stresses the negative impacts that being part of Canada has had on Quebec: an illegitimate constitution, economic under development, and attempts at assimilation. Pelletier, however, believes that the best place for the Quebec nation is within the Canadian one. The economic issue, that Seymour stresses very hard, Pelletier brushes off as of secondary concern. The constitution that Seymour points to as illegitimate and therefore nonbinding, Pelletier sees as the basis for recognition of Quebec nationalism.
Natashia Apangchan Canadian Identity As an immigrant, and of the 7 years that I’ve stayed here in Canada, I’ve come to know some of the Canadian identity. I have lots on mind but the things that stand out the most is that Canadians are so patriotic and generous, and diverse. To me, I see the Canadians as patriotic because their love for their country is very strong. I have seen the pride in their eyes when they say that they are Canadian. The way they cheer for their athletes, during the Olympics and other sports, shows how proud they are to wear the red and white maple flag to support them.
Molson’s advertisement and the narrative address it contains, attempt to convey through several uses of language and rhetoric their version of what they want Canada to be perceived as. Firstly, the usage of the second person makes the advertisement personal and also makes it appear that these are things you should do if you want to be like a Canadian. By employing phrases such as “there is an unwritten code in Canada,” followed by “if you love by it…,” paint an image of what Canada is supposed to be like, according to Molson. Also, the employment of simple, concise, list like statements make Molson’s narrative address that much stronger; every statement says something that Canadians do, therefore implying that each of those things are culturally
