How does the Canadian Charter Of Rights And Freedoms protect Canadians as individuals? Many Canadians know that the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms is part of Canada’s Constitution. The Charter protects every Canadian’s right to be treated equally under the law. The Charter guarantees, for all Canadians, Fundamental Freedoms, Mobility Rights and Legal Rights. Under the Charter in the section entitled Fundamental Freedoms”, Canadians have the right and freedom to express their own opinions, choose their own religion, to organize peaceful meetings and demonstrations and also the freedom to associate with any person or group.
Canada has been taking immigrants and refugees for hundreds of years and will hopefully continue to do so. Each immigrant has a unique understanding of Canadian national identity as each is incorporated with different foreign cultures. Many immigrants value the freedom, rights, safety, and security that Canada provides them with. The Canadian opinion on migrants is mostly positive as this country was built and strengthened by immigration. My own parents immigrated to Canada in 1998 and my family is incredibly grateful that they did.
¬¬¬Canada is known worldwide, as a multi-cultured and accepting society¬¬¬. Canada is recognized as understanding of all genders, races, ages, sex orientations, and all religions. Canada shows this acceptance in the collective morals of society, but also in the legal system. However not every country is like Canada. 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.

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.
Furthermore, the creation story is very relevant to other cultures. Not only does it show the relevance between Native American culture and beliefs with the rest of the world, but it also shines light on their thoughts and points of view that could be further studied. Finally, there can be similarities found between every nation, no matter how different they may seem on the surface, because all humans share an innate essence with one another, human
Another concept, relevant to the multiculturalism hypothesis, called Multicultural Ideology was measured as well. This concept assumes a point of view that “cultural diversity is good for a society and for its individual members, and such diversity should be shared and accommodated in an equitable way” (Berry, 2006). Research by J. Berry started more than 30 years ago in Canada and continued in 1995. Overall, the results of these two studies showed that Canadians, in majority, endorse multicultural ideology and, in general, have a positive view about the policy of multiculturalism (Berry, 2006). As far as the concept of security is concerned, correlations between cultural and economic security were calculated (+ .46), as well as correlations of the security scores with scores on attitudes (for example, the correlation of cultural security with multicultural ideology was + .52) (Berry, 2006).
The Serbs believed that the Bosnian Muslims were a disease infecting Bosnia, and they were taking it upon themselves to rid Bosnia of the Muslim culture, it is what they called “ethnic cleansing”. The Serbians used methods similar to Nazi Germany in order to gather groups of Bosnian Muslims to exterminate. The most gruesome mass killing happened in Srebrenica, Bosnia, and was appropriately named the Srebrenica Massacre. In the summer of 1995, Serbian forces began sweeping through the streets of Bosnia and Herzegovina in search of non-serbs, specifically Muslims. The ones that did not have the sense to escape Bosnia while they could were found and capture.
In conclusion, Newfoundland made the right decision in joining Confederation. This was because of Canada delivering on its promise to provide Newfoundland with family allowance, and investing in roads and infrastructure projects, and relieving the debts of the province. Newfoundlands decision of joining confederation ultimately shaped it into the successful province that it is today. I personally believe that we would not be saying the same had it not joined with Canada, which illustrates the true extent to which Newfoundlanders enjoyed prosperity
We need both majority and minority governments to work together for a common goal as well as working with other countries for common benefits such as our free trade agreement we enjoy with the USA today. So 1867 lead the way for us to live free in Canada and for that, I am eternally
I don't agree with The Honourable David Lam in his article "Pulling Together" where he remarks that in Hong Kong, people are rude and loud, but in other parts of the world, like Canada, people don't accept that behaviour. I think that Canadian people are equally rude and loud as in Hong Kong. Just how important manners are? However in Canada, minimization of friction between people in Canada is verifiable. Compared to other countries where immigrants feel like they have to embrace the culture in order to become part of it; in Canada it’s the opposite.
