Canada has many events that had helped shape our country today. Some events were minor events, while some events had major parts in the creation of Canada. I think Confederation, The Rebellions of 1838 to 1838, and The Quebec Act of 1774, were all very important events in the history of Canada. Confederation was important because if Canada hadn’t joined together to form a strong alliance against enemies, their foes could’ve come in and stolen Rupert’s Land so a lot of what is now Canada would be part of the US. This would make Canada even weaker and the US would take the Maritime “provinces” and then attempt to take over the rest of Canada, and in the event it happened, Canada would no longer exist and much of North America would now be part of the US.
Canada was eager in recruiting them because of their talents and how they would positively affect their economy. “Some scholars have declared that a country’s refugee policy defines it very character” (Madokoro 162). “In recent years Canada has led Western nations in offering safe haven to those who required it” (Troper 1). In today’s world, “Canada has one of the largest refugee

The First World War had the most significant impact on the Canadian nation, changing it for decades to come. This is evident because of how Canada could be less respected if it wasn’t for their war contributions, how women’s rights could have been different or non-existent, and how Canada could not have gained it’s independence from Britain. In conclusion, World War One impacted Canada greatly
According to the text, “Prime minister of Canada is the leader of Canada’s national government.” Also, most prime ministers have had a role in a smaller part of Canada’s government. The text said, “Almost every prime minister has been a member of the House of Commons.” Canada’s prime minister is at the top of the country. The Queen of Canada does not actually make the rules; however, she has the power to change them. The King or Queen of Canada is mainly for ceremonial purposes. According to the text, “the monarch and the governor general primarily carry out formal and ceremonial duties.” As well as, the Queen meets with her fellow citizens.

In terms of indigenous nations taking part in constituting a political community with the rest of Canada, the land issue is one of the most prominent issues in which the colonizers exploited leading to continuous tensions with the federal government and the fragility in Canada’s political community. For indigenous nations, colonization deprived them of the relationship with their land in which indigenous identities are defined along (Hudson & MacDonald, 2012, p. 429). Although indigenous people and the British had treaty-like agreements, much of those treaties were ignored and the indigenous land was taken without the consent of the indigenous nations. An example of a treaty that was ignored by the colonizers is the Royal Proclamation of 1763
The baby boom era has been an important and significant time that marked the Canadian history. Baby boomers born during post-World War 2 between the years 1946 and 1964 are people that are named such due to the exceeding number of births. There have not only been population changes but the economic conditions and long-term effects have taken place because of this. Throughout years of seeing the effect of baby boomers, we can see it has significantly impacted the Canadian society. It has impacted and is continuing to affect the Canadian society by affecting the economy, the means of long-term effect and the drastic changes in the population count.

As more and more Canadians joined the war the demand for Canadian resources increased and new industries were formed. Our wheat, cheese, pork, and beef exports tripled as shortages of food increased.

In the 1970s, industrialization and urbanization increased all over Canada with the assistance of the growing population and acceptance of immigrants (Drummond, 2006, 1). By 1987, both Ontario and Quebec’s economies became very urbanized, and service industries and occupations were the main targets for most Canadians (Drummond, 2006, 1). At the end of the 20th century, Canadian currency was relatively low compared to the U.S dollar due to the depression of commodity prices (Drummond, 2006, 1). In 2002, however, as commodity prices recovered, the Canadian dollar instantly increased and was at par with the U.S dollar (Drummond, 2006, 1). In 2007, the Harper government announced the importance in pursuing the new free trade agreements in order to support Canadian commerce overseas (Drummond, 2006, 1).

Canada is a culturally and ethnically diverse nation. Since the early British and French settlers, it has always been a land of immigrants. In the 20th century, the profile of immigrants began to change from mostly European to a wide variety of nations such as South Asia, South East Asia and Arab nations. Multiculturalism has long been an official policy in Canada, first introduced in the early 1970s. Nevertheless, it is often a controversial and debated issue.
A very controversial topic in the past few years has been immigration. Immigration is better for Canada because it helps introduce different cultures, increase Canada 's growth, and raise economic worth. Canada is well known for its diverse cultures. Immigration helps introduce many new cultures to Canada, aiding it to keep the diverse, vibrant and accepting identity that Canada currently has today (Vaughan). The reason immigration helps give Canada the identity it has today is because if Canada didn 't accept immigrants it would be less diverse and more un-inclusive.
