In Canada, there are examples in real-life events that portray disparity, ableism and tokenism. Every Canadian has different perspectives towards the disabled-bodied population; the people label them differently especially when it comes in the media. In the Canadian society, there is a lot of ableism developed amongst the abled-bodied population which openly discriminates people with disabilities and favoring the abled-bodied with many opportunities; there are a lot of events and opportunities in various industries for the abled-bodied while the people who are disabled are not given the opportunities that are open to the abled-bodied population. When it comes to disparity, the disabled population are openly discriminate, and people display
Racial segregation by tacit agreement, identity doubt of Canadian citizenship, and entrenched Eurocentrism have all combined to substantiate multiculturalism in Canada is futile. First of all, multiculturalism is abortive in Canada because immigrants from one culture habitually separate from others. According
Philippines and Canada are two different economic spectrum. The former has historically struggled with poverty from the period of colonization to today’s rapid globalization with poverty incidence of 21.6% as of 2014 (PSA, 2016). Canada, on the other hand, has 9.7% rate of low income but majority of those are transitory. From 2005-2010, only 1.5% are considered in persistent low income (Statistics Canada, 2015 as cited by Lamman, & McIntyre, 2016). Beyond these numbers, there remains a grim reality that faced citizens within the poverty thresholds from both nations.
Western alienation is described as “a feeling of resentment by some inhabitants of western Canada against perceived favouritism by the national government towards the western provinces” (Collins, 2015). This alienation from the government can also be seen and demonstrated in the Senate, leading the growing western provinces to be underrepresented. The current system of allocating seats has not been significantly changed since confederation (Boyer, 2014).This has caused the alienation of provinces and discourse throughout regions due to the lack of considerable representation and recognition of distinct attributes and needs of provinces who are grouped together when they should be considered a region on it’s own (Boyer, 2014, 221-223). The
Authentic Native Americans who inhabited around what is now called Mackinac County, Michigan and northeast of the Great Lakes from around 1200 CE, was originally referred to as Michilimackinac; derived from the Native language called Algonquian, which means "large turtle" to describe the shape of Mackinac Island (1, 280). Given that the Native Tribes left merely a diminutive amount of recorded information, there is an insufficient aggregated evidence that can be comprehended with inevitability concerning their culture and in research that was collected, there seems to be more archeological evidence regarding forceful European cultural influences than actual Native culture, and is the reason why we have even gained written documentation regarding

Canada is a nation that prides itself on opportunity and freedom. However, the treatment of Canada’s aboriginal community says otherwise. Although Canada is incredibly welcoming to new immigrants that want a fresh start, the original occupants, Aboriginal people, are still being mistreated today. Aboriginal people are described as the original people or indigenous occupants of a particular country (Hutchings, 2016). Unfortunately, Aboriginal people have been exploited in Canada for decades, which has resulted in high levels of gender and class oppression.

In general, I believe that the answer to this question really depends on the immigrant that you are interviewing because different immigrants have different experiences (different factors or reasons for why they immigrated to Canada and how they felt after coming to Canada because different immigrants have different opinions about Canada as a country). An example of such a difference in opinion is the following; some immigrants prefer the multiculturalism and the diversity in the cultures/religions that exist in the Canadian society, whereas other immigrants dislike the multiculturalism. However, if I consider only my father, Monirul Islam’s, case and immigrant experience, then I believe that his experience was very memorable and life-changing

Quebec is a province in Canada that was founded in 1867. The nationalist movement in Quebec, also known as the Quebec sovereignty movement, is a political movement that promotes the independence of the province from the country of Canada. This conflict was between the Catholic people of Quebec, also known as Québécois, and the Protestant people of the rest of Canada. It is often referred to as The Quiet Revolution because no violence takes place. The reasons behind sovereignty were due to Quebec’s fear of losing their unique culture because of the assimilation of the rest of the country.
Reign of Trudeau Canada has 23 different Prime Minsters that was in charge of Canada since 1871, but all of these men did not have a positive effect on Canada, while they were in office. Pierre Elliot Trudeau, the 15th Prime Minster of Canada was an exception. For 15 years of being Prime Minster, Trudeau was a great Prime Minster because he united a country which was historically divided and ushered it in a unique bilingually identity. During his time in the office, Trudeau made great advancements in social, political and cultural spheres of Canada.
In the history of Quebec officially attributed by Jacques Cartier in 1534, but thousands of years before his arrival, people have crossed the frozen ground and established different communities. These people were Indigenous people, the first inhabitants of the province Quebec. Many years later, numerous explorer stopped in Quebec attempted to explore the land especially the east of Quebec. During 1535, Jacques Cartier’s second journey brought many benefits to the King of France. During this journey, he went to Stadacona (Quebec City), Hochelaga (Montreal), and finally, he stopped in Trois-Rivieres on the way back home (Fauteux, A, 2004).
