Canada is also the home of my beautiful family and friends. From my personal experiences of Canada it’s a very clean and safe place to live or visit. I’ve had the pleasure of visiting a couple Canadian Provinces, such as Ontario (which is the home of my lovely Wife and Daughter), and Quebec. The citizens of Canada are very polite and forgiving for the most part. Understanding the different values and ethics shows someone the culture of a country.
With everything that happened in the wars Canada is still composed with peace and prosperity. War did not define Canada, out peacekeeping abilities did. Canada is a nation often associated with peace and prosperity but in reality we are a nation defined by war and suffering. After everything these hardships did help shape Canada and Canadians. Our war and suffering brought the nation to work together for what is right.
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.
Before the Charter, many people may argue that Canada was a free and democratic country. Canadians had the freedom of expression, equality and the principles of fundamental justice. What changed with the creation of the Charter was that rights and freedoms were given constitutional status, and judges were given the power to strike down laws that infringed on them. In 1982, most Canadians agreed that the introduction of the Charter was going to monumental. But on the contrary, over 30 years later, numerous laws have been struck down by interpretation of the charter and remedial techniques that have been developed by courts.
The federal government has done so, very much to help our beautiful country of Canada. They have given us rights and freedoms, safety and security and most of all a great country to live in. But I am not here to tell you how supposedly great the government is; I am here to inform you on how the government’s actions have affected us as Canadian citizens. Canada’s government was founded in 1867 under the Constitution Act. From then until now, has the government improved our land, or slowly destroyed it?
Living in Canada, we as Canadians take pride in our culture, kindness, hospitality, and sports. Everyone around the world views both Canada and Australia as kind, multicultural caring countries that accept refugees from war torn-nations. Although Canada and Australia are looked as peace-keeping countries, in the past the governments of both nations made a number of laws that had a major impact on the Aboriginal youth. I believe that the same piece of land we formed our country on is the same land built on blood, mistreatment, and oppression. To discover information on the treatment of aboriginal youth by the governments of Canada and Australia, as well as the similarities and differences of treatment, we must take a closer look back at both countries history and also at the period when the Juvenile Delinquent Act was enacted.
However, not many have been able to identify a certain time period where Canadian identity has prospered. The postwar era and repatriation of Canadian constitution (1945-1982) best identifies Canadian identity. This is because this was the time Canada established its peacekeeping reputation and became independent. Firstly, as the world exited the wartime era, plans to

Someone that I would consider an effective leader is Stephan Harper, Canada’s Prime Minister, I do not have a personal connection to Stephan Harper but I believe that he has made a difference as a leader in Canada. Harper communicates well and always keeps the public up to date on his beliefs and values. Harpers openness gives his followers confidence in his decisions for our country.
In this project I will bring forward the cultural variations observed between the Syrians and the Canadians. Names: most parents in Canada pick names as they wish for their children and it doesn’t have to follow any particular pattern. Sometimes the names do not indicate any family relationship at all. However in Syria the parents choose a first name for the child followed by the father’s name and then the family name at the end.
This atmosphere of news ideas and voices cherished an expansion in an unique Canadian identity. Canada is a country of duel languages, multiculurlism, and impartiality but it was through the efforts of one man that allowed these components. Due to Pierre Trudeau 's involvment in immigration, equal oppournities and French-Canadian
Beginning in the 20th century, Canada was encouraging immigration to take place, and for people to migrate to this country that promised free land and exemption to follow whatever religion they desired to follow. However, there were many disputes that arose when attempts to bring people in began. Our past reality was portrayed a certain way however, Canada currently in the 21st century has evolved immensely. Despite this, a variety of our feelings toward immigration have also remained the same since then. Overall, the Canadian government as well as the general population’s feelings toward immigration in the 20th and 21st century possess several differences and similarities as our past differs from what our current reality is yet, a great deal
Canada is a multicultural country. As a lot of people have immigrated to Canada from different parts of the world, they brought some cultural elements of their native culture along with them. These cultural elements have been blended into the mainstream culture of Canada. With so much diverse population, it is natural that people will be ethnocentric.
“Once you understand and appreciate other people’s cultural backgrounds, then you can also connect with them more” Either being born or migrating into America you are considered as an American Citizen. In reality are you actually treated as American Citizen? People of America tend to stereotype different races and cultures. However,America is full of diversity and multicultural human beings, but there is a lot of oppression against races or a specific race. Therefore, Americans should embrace being multicultural because if we don't embrace it then it limits how individuals of different cultures feel oppressed.
