If it weren’t for the huge advancements of technology in the early 20th century who knows where we would be today. The period 1914-1929 was a period of rapid change in Canada. Many great things were done in the short 15 year. All of these changes have affected how our lives here in Canada are
In the 1850’s, some pioneers began to choose to immigrate to Canada rather than the US. The land there was untamed and the terrain difficult compared to America, which had already been settled for around 200 years. The frontier life in Canada revolved around the basic needs. Pioneers built the country from the ground up, starting with simple log cabins. The long, cold winters and harsh wilderness kept it from being an overly popular frontier, and to this day, despite being larger than its southern neighbor, is over nine times less populous.
The return phase sees Brian discover two parallel mysterious straight lines in the snow. After following these lines, he finds a Rustic Log Cabin in the Woods and it meets a trapping family inside.

As Mahatma Gandhi once said “In a gentle way, you can shake the world.” Pierre Trudeau is undeniably one of Canada’s most influential people because of his many accomplishments and the impact he had on Canadians. During his time as prime minister, he achieved many tasks that have and will positively affect Canada for many years to come. Pierre Trudeau encouraged multiculturalism to contribute to Canada’s growth as a country. He was able to bring Canada together as a nation through his efforts on bilingualism. In the sixteen years that Trudeau was in power, he created many acts that still hold their significance.
I still remember the day April 14th,2008. I can still recall those moments, the part where my parents told me, we are moving to Canada. My parents had just told me two days before flight. They never told us before because we would get over excited, and tell this to everyone. Going to a foregin country is a big deal.
Pearson completed and formed many programs and acts that helped Canada and beyond. As shown through his excellent job in politics, international affairs and improvement of Canadian lives, Pearson was able to become a successful Prime Minister. Over time, Canada has selected many strong Prime Ministers. However, as shown throughout this essay, Lester B. Pearson was possibly the
The conflict started in the early 1520’s and still has significant presence in Canadian society. There are many events in history that have increased the level of nationalism in French Canadian areas, especially Quebec. French Canadian people of Quebec generally feel like they deserve to have their own culture while being isolated from the rest of Canada. In Canada there are hundreds of different cultures in every city; with little to no pressure for other cultures to assimilate, drop their traditions and have their own distinct society, Quebec’s people should feel no different. Nationalism has been politically, economically and socially influential in Canadian society for many years.
CANADIAN IDENTITY By Rebecca Grimwood Does Canada have a secure identity, or have we become an American wannabe? The two countries share the longest border in the world, and have a similar amount of land mass. Many wonder if Canada is simply a smaller version of America. Although Canada is aware of America’s entertainment industry, concept of multiculturalism, and history, there are fundamental differences that make Canada’s identity unique and secure. Historically, the United States influenced Canadian development as new technology became available to the citizens of both countries.
Living their home country just so my siblings and I could get a better education and better life. As we all know, life in America is not that easy when you are newbies. As an 11 years old kid, I wouldn't know what to do or how to help my parents when they are going through a tough time. All I do was go to school, come home, and do some reading. Besides, school wasn't that easy for me because I didn't know English and I couldn't communicate with the people around me nor the teachers.
A general description of the culture: Previously, the culture of Canada throughout the country was heavily influenced by the British and the French and their own indigenous people [Loue, S; Sajatovic, M; 2011]. However, as times have progressed, the culture has also progressed to incorporate the immigrant cultures. Today, Canada is known throughout the world as a multicultural, diverse, and very progressive country [Mooney Cotter, A; 2011]. The immigration of people from all over the world has
Canadians, used to seeing leadership of technology in the hands of the United States and Britain, were suddenly aware that they had something that looked like the best in the world. 15:15 This quote stood out to me during the documentary, because of Canada 's recognition of their countrys ' limitations. Canada, because of their size and economic restrictions, relies heavily on countries such as the United States. The United States provide opportunity and finacial aid to Canadians as a whole. For example, many of the people who worked on the plane in Canada have gone on to the United States to do great things.

I can think of over a hundred men, and myself, who would be more than willing to perform this public service. “Are the kids still safe in Ontario?” I ask, veering the conversation to a happier subject. “I called from a pay phone the other day. The lady they’re with found a house for us outside Winnipeg. We’ll be safe there.” I place my hand on top of hers and squeeze tight.
Many of the hockey games I have been to have been memorable, but a couple of other experiences also stand out. My dad had bought tickets for us to go to the game on the night of my 16th birthday. Later that day he was offered tickets from a company that does contracting work for him. They were seats on the glass. Just sitting in the first row alone was exhilarating; however, the Blues had just signed the legendary goalie Martin Brodeur who was starting his first game for the team that night.
Many people looked at the land to the West, what we call today Manitoba, Alberta, Saskatchewan, as possible land for settlement. But the Americans were also thinking about moving into this land. If the BNA colonies unite, then they could claim this land as their own before the Americans arrive. To conclude, the years leading up to and including 1867 was a historic time for our great nation. Not only did we become a country and celebrate annually on July 1st, but brought colonies together for a common goal by eliminating Political Deadlock during the Great Coalition.
