For many, the question of whether Canada’s vast multiculturalism is beneficial or hindering remains unanswered and unresolved. From its adoption on October 7 1971, multiculturalism was intended to preserve the cultural freedom of all individuals and to provide recognition of the cultural contributions of diverse ethnic groups to Canadian society.
