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.
Mackenzie also wrote a book called “Voyages from Montreal to the Frozen and Pacific Oceans”. He also has a river named after him called the Mackenzie River and a park named after him called Sir Alexander Mackenzie Provincial Park. He also has a statue near the parliament buildings in Ottawa. Alexander Mackenzie is important to Canada because he was one of the first
The Red Couch Tour has a strong influence on Canadians and conveys a clear message through these different stories. The main artifact is a red couch with the Canada’s 150 maple leaf logo; and the location of the red couch placement is close to the ‘empty space’ of Canada. The secondary artifact is the invited Canadians who story tell about Canada’s past time and identities. The meaning of the artifact is more than what meets the eyes; this event develops on the theme of unification, storytelling and cultural nationalism. These theme is described from this quote, “Instead of going to peoples’ living rooms, we’re taking it to them.
Canada is also the home of my beautiful family and friends. From my personal experiences of Canada it’s a very clean and safe place to live or visit. I’ve had the pleasure of visiting a couple Canadian Provinces, such as Ontario (which is the home of my lovely Wife and Daughter), and Quebec. The citizens of Canada are very polite and forgiving for the most part. Understanding the different values and ethics shows someone the culture of a country.
The “living Tree” approach versus strict construction is another important aspect of the major terms and conditions set in the constitution act (1867). Canada has a “living tree” approach when it refers to the legal system we have in Canada. The Judical Committee of the Privy Council once stated that “The British North America Act planted in Canada a living tree capable of growth and expansion within its natural limits” (McCormack & Bueckert, 2013). In Canada we have a very democratic way of seeing and applying our decisions on different political views. Whether it’s voting in elections to elect new MP, elect a new Prime Minister or the voting between the political parties in the house of commons when deciding on important issues in our society, a decision is never made without the vote between many people.
Over the past few decades, there has been many distinct perspectives and conflicts surrounding the historical context between the Indigenous peoples in Canada and the Canadian Government. In source one, the author P.J Anderson is trying to convey that the absolute goal of the Indian Residential School system in Canada has been to assimilate the Indian nation and provide them with guidance to “ forget their Indian habits”, and become educated of the “ arts of civilized life”, in order to help them integrate into society and “become one” with their “White brethren”. It is clearly evident throughout the source that the author is supportive of the Indian residential school system and strongly believes that the Indian residential School System
Living in Canada, we as Canadians take pride in our culture, kindness, hospitality, and sports. Everyone around the world views both Canada and Australia as kind, multicultural caring countries that accept refugees from war torn-nations. Although Canada and Australia are looked as peace-keeping countries, in the past the governments of both nations made a number of laws that had a major impact on the Aboriginal youth. I believe that the same piece of land we formed our country on is the same land built on blood, mistreatment, and oppression. To discover information on the treatment of aboriginal youth by the governments of Canada and Australia, as well as the similarities and differences of treatment, we must take a closer look back at both countries history and also at the period when the Juvenile Delinquent Act was enacted.
Culture is defined as behaviours, values and beliefs shared by a group of people and passed on from one generation to another. Canada is a bilingual and a multicultural country. Canada is also known as a cultural mosaic as it allows people of many cultures to coalesce into one. Immigrates are coaxed to keep their culture and teach others about their cultures. Canada was established in 1867 by British North America act.
The judicial branch of Canada has played one of the most unique roles in history due to their shaping of Canada. The decisions rendered by the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council (hereby referred to as the JCPC) and the Supreme Court of Canada impacted the values of Canadian citizens. These decisions were often contradictory and exposed the legal system as flawed, inflexible and stubborn. Throughout the decades the judiciary sought to maintain rules crafted by the Fathers of Confederation in 1867, rather than adopt more effective standards for judgement. The Canadian federal and provincial powers were broken into sections 91 and 92 in the British North America Act of 1867.

Canadian identity has often been a popular theme with historians and social scientists over the years. However, not many have been able to identify a certain time period where Canadian identity has prospered. The postwar era and repatriation of Canadian constitution (1945-1982) best identifies Canadian identity. This is because this was the time Canada established its peacekeeping reputation and became independent. Firstly, as the world exited the wartime era, plans to
The sovereignty movement has always been about the protection of the French language and Quebec Culture. Outside of Quebec, the levels of assimilation of French speaking Canadians are very high. The federal government’s policies of Bilingualism and Multiculturalism
