Many of them moved to Ontario, The Prairies and Quebec and in 1946, around 4,000 were exiled to Japan. On August 4, 1944, Prime Minister King stated: ‘’It is a fact that no person of Japanese race born in Canada has been charged with any act of sabotage or disloyalty during the years of war.’’ The final stage of the Japanese-Canadians struggle for justice and identification as full Canadian citizens was the Redress movement in 1980. In 1949, all of the restrictions on the Japanese Canadians were taken away and they were given full citizenship rights. They officially marked the end of internment camps.The Japanese-Canadians had the right to vote and to return back to the West Coast. However, there wasn 't a home to go back to.
As a matter of fact, most people come in Canada to escape from suppression, and they wish they have better life and freedom in Canada. They did not come to Canada just to make money. Therefore, people should acknowledge them as members of Canadian without a suspicious look at them. Secondly, rights, responsibilities and pride should be prioritized rather than racial backgrounds. According to the Ishaq (2015), even though there is still being existence prejudice against other races, but Ishaq participates in social business in accordance with her beliefs without any boundary, and enjoys normal life in each position such as mother and social members.
A country 's culture can be seen as interchangeable with identity; in Canada there is evidence of American culture everywhere. Canada can be seen as a civic nation because Canadians come from many different backgrounds but choose to live together under similar political beliefs and values.This has allowed Canadian culture to be very diverse. In spite of this diverseness majority of the culture comes from the U.S. Most movies, T.V. shows, magazines, and radio content was made in the

Canada is a multicultural and a diverse country however Immigrant Assimilation has always been a major problem in the country. Immigrant Assimilation is the process in which a group or a culture resemble cultures of a different group. Canada has a history of Immigrants Assimilation.
Irish Culture in Atlantic Canada In Canada, the Irish have played an important role. From early settlements in Newfoundland, to large quantities of migrations in the 19th century and the present, the Irish have always been present in the Canadian culture. Irish Canadians played a huge role in contributing to the Canadian society and its economy, and the Irish Canadian continue to demonstrate their contributions to Canada. Many Irish immigrants entered Atlantic Canada through Halifax, Nova Scotia. For over 350 years, the Irish has established history in Atlantic Canada.
In Canada, a wide range of beliefs is covering the whole country. For instance, Roman Catholics, Anglicans, Baptists, and the remaining are belong with non-Christian religions, the largest of which are Islam and Hinduism. Of these, the great majority of Canadians about 70% identify as Christian. Freedom of religion in Canada is a protected right, allowing individuals to assemble and worship without limitation or interference. Likewise, Chinese civilization has been influenced by various religious including Confucianism, Buddhism, Taoism, Christianity, Islam and other faiths.
Colonialism is a perpetual and relevant issue in Canada. The definition of Colonialism is, “The policy or practice of acquiring full or partial political control over another country, occupying it with settlers, and exploiting it economically” according to the Oxford dictionary (The Oxford Dictionary, 2018). On a small scale, Canada is influenced by Britain as British Commonwealth; the consequences that preceded the colonization are evident in the contrast of the standards of living between the general populations and Aboriginals. Colonization can also be or continue with, “geographical intrusion in the form of agricultural, urban or industrial encroachments” (LaRocque, 2008). The freedom of religion in Canada relies on the Eurocentric view
Indo-Canadian literature encompasses the writings of the Canadians who trace their origins from India, migrating to Canada either directly from India or indirectly from British colonies such as East or South Africa, the Pacific Islands and the Carribean Islands. The Indo-Canadian community emerged in the beginning of the twentieth century, through the Sikh soldiers from Punjab who attended Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee Celebrations in 1897. They took the way of Canada to reach India during which they were ravished by the fertile lands and other natural sceneries. They tried their fortunes in the countries they visited and got employed as cops in the police force or night watchmen in some British firms. Thus, the Indian air started to spread in the soil of Canada including, intellectual and literary
Some scholars have enlarged their coverage by focusing on a specific issue or topic of Indian Diaspora in a given region. This is understandable considering the constraints of opportunity, time and resources encountered by scholars. Thus comparative studies of Indian Diaspora have been few. Restudies of a diasporic community and comparisons between “the old immigration” and “the new immigration” are rare. Indians are not the only people who have ventured out of their homeland in such vast numbers.
Personally, my views towards the Indigenous is mostly positive and reasonable. They have a very interesting culture and a lifestyle that develops thought-provoking questions in society, mainly from those who are intrigued with their actions. What drew my interest towards the Indigenous was their respect and dedication to themselves and their culture. How they developed various ways to express themselves and come together such as Storying, Yarning Circles and the Dreamtime. To me these were ways to connect and bond with one another, to understand a person and their individuality without judgement.
