However, English outcry caused a divide between English and French Canadians which ran deep in Canadian politics subsequently included many issues. The most pressing issue which split English and French Canadians was conscription. Making most French Canadians reluctant to enlist.

9. What are the barriers faced by women in accessing justice and services? Canada is the dream destination for many immigrants. Federal government reported, the number of immigrants entering Canada in 2012 were over 250,000 being one of the highest proportion of foreign-born population in any country. Immigrants who enter Canada generally have no understanding or knowledge of the family justice system and face some serious hindrances in gaining access and learning the system, and arguably, the single group of immigrants that face the greatest barriers are immigrant women who are victims of domestic violence.
Overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity. It is the protection of a fundamental human right, the right to dignity and a decent life (Nelson Mandela, n,d.). Has Canada forgotten their own people? First Nations people in remote communities all across Canada have been living in poverty for quite a long time now and the levels of poverty in the remote communities are increasing every day and are causing too many stemming problems. The many problems that First Nations deal with include poor housing and crowded living conditions, individuals are forced to live in crowded living situations, which causes mental health issues to escalate every day.
Canada has around 45,000 children that are Orphans. Many of the Orphanages are under funded and lack in resources to effectively care for children. However there are large corporations that are recognizing these issues and taking initiative to make a change and help these children. Sobeys should also take part in helping the children across Canada and around the world. Sobeys should create a Kids First Program where their optimal goals is raising 1000 clothing unit and for Sobeys to donate 10,000 LBS.
The writer posited further that globally there are always disparities between host countries and immigrants as it relates to mental health. Canadian immigrants are least likely to get sick as compared to their global counterparts because of the stringent immigration policies here. The writer suggests further that social determinants both pre and post-migration plays a key role in the mental health of for immigrants in Canada in a both negative and positive way. The writer long with a team conducted a peer review on academics resources on mental health problems within the IRER communities. Over 1600 were perused covering depression suicide conduct disorder and mental illness amongst the IRER population.
There is something wrong with the health care in America. People who live abroad in other countries understand there are issues with the United States health care system. According to “The Lancet”, the journal in the field of global health, “Fifteen percent of the population of America, or 37 million persons, have no health insurance or coverage (the highest in the industrialized world), one-third are children under 18.” So if they would fall ill, they could become bankrupt by paying out of pocket for medical attention. It would be better to change the American system to be more like the Japanese health care system. There are three main factors that could better change the American health care systems: accessibility, cost, and credit security.
Life in America in the 1900’s proved to be difficult for the sick, injured, and special people. If you had a common cold you likely would not survive too long, for the reason that, it would turn worse,if you broke your foot, there wasn 't much that could be done to heal it. Today in America doctors will assist you right away by putting a cast or boot over your foot, also, if you have a common cold, there is a wide variety of cold and cough medicines to relieve your cold in a week 's span. The reason for all these significant changes from 1900 to 2015 is technology, it played the greatest role on the evolvement of healthcare.

"³ says Sheila North Wilson, grand chief of Manitoba Keewatinowi Okimakanak. Aboriginals are not considered a priority and offered the bare minimum of necessary services. According to Canada health “First Nations youth commit suicide about five to six times more often than non-Aboriginal youth.” yet Aboriginal youth are not provided with half the resources and aid that non-indigenous people receive. Canada is fully responsible for the high suicide rates amongst Indigenous people, and need to begin providing full time aid and services to Aboriginals just the like rest of
Canada prides itself on being a multicultural country due to its large population of immigrants. Immigrants contribute greatly to Canada’s economy, culture and general society. Immigrants often come to Canada in search of a better life but they can encounter stressors that can have a large impact on their mental health. In this essay I will explore some factors that lead to mental health issues among the immigrant population, what prevents immigrants from accessing help and measures that could and should be taken to address this issue. Agyekum and Newhold (2016) note how “the health of immigrants has been observed to deteriorate within a few years of arriving in Canada, with the decline in immigrants’ physical and mental health said to be
Immigrants make up 61% of low-income neighbourhoods, where they are mostly living in overcrowded or unaffordable housing (Ibid). Immigrants and racial minorities experience great difficulties with finding employment, settlement matters, financial issues, and mental and physical health problems. These concerns inevitably lead to increased stress on parents, straining the needs and well-being of children. It is not a coincidence that Ontario has the highest number of unaccompanied minors in Canada, considering there is a lack of subsidized daycares (Ibid). Canada enforces increased surveillance on immigrant families because of the emphasis on risk management rather than service needs (Ibid).
Even more so why pay for medication that just tries to make their loved one comfortable when we have the option of giving a prescription that will ensure they’re no longer in pain. If that is what they the individual want why can’t they have it?
