Immigration Report Canada is a very diverse country. Meaning there is are people from all over the world. Immigration is a huge part of Canada, and Canada wouldn’t be the same without it. There are a lot of people who immigrate to Canada from all over the world for many different reasons. A lot of the people who are here now, were not originally from Canada.
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
Immigration in Canada is one of the core values, it has been since almost the founding of Canada. The way that Canada grew in population during the early years, even France had a way of populating Canada. When we established colonies and new cities, they were all people that were from Great Britain and France. The British and French treated the native people as a second class person. The First Nations did not have the same rights and privileges as the newcomers to Canada.
To build Canada's national identity and its heritage into a form of social and cultural construction by discursive strategies. Thinking about discourse, it is a competition of different positions in the field; and only the most powerful one can easily hold the discourse power and voice with the most significant volume. That is why the voice is a very important thing; also, only the voice can express their own positions and can be fighting for the rights for themselves. In Yaying’s study, she discusses the minority positioning through some novels for the generic crossing. Many writers record and reflect the fear of Canadian’s colonial experience and the colonial tendency of American culture from its bully neighborhood, as well as the shadow of this experience and the fear in the contemporary Canadian heart into the literature, in order to challenge the European or American culture’s leading role or central position in Canada.
“Canada is a multicultural nation and will become even more so as time goes on.” The statement represents how Canada is so rich in culture and how welcoming we are. Canada is a land full of immigrants and will continue to grow with more people with different cultures. All Canadians are descendants of immigrants that immigrated to Canada in one point in their lifetime. Being a child of Indian immigrants, I experience a lot of multiculturalism. It is a whole new world outside the boundaries of my home.
Overall, Canada has a life expectancy of 79.5 years in 2001, which was only 2.1 years behind Japan which has the highest life expectancy (Kermode-Scott). This places Canada in a similar position to the rest of the developed nations in the world (Kermode-Scott). This contrasts drastically with the life expectancy of Indigenous peoples in Canada. For example, in that same year the Inuit in Nunavik (the region in Northern Quebec) had a life expectancy average of 66.7 years – a difference of 12.8 years (Kermode-Scott). This region’s life expectancy is between that of the Dominican Republic and Egypt, which are ranked 111 and 112 out of 191 countries in the world with regards to life expectancy(Kermode-Scott).
CANADA’S PARLIAMENT Canada’s Parliament, as conceived by the Fathers of Confederation in 1867, continues to be a vibrant example of democracy in action. In Parliament, our representatives examine the top issues of the day, decide on policies and laws, and hold the government accountable for its actions. Canada's parliamentary system is open and democratic. It offers the opportunity for people to give their input and it is designed to make sure proposals for laws are carefully considered. Canada’s Parliament consists of three parts: the Queen (our Head of State), represented by the Governor General; the appointed Senate; and the elected House of Commons.
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.
This then helps the prospective Canadian citizens realize what the perks and rules of being a Canadian citizen are, as well as outline the process to becoming a Canadian citizen. It should be noted that these rights and freedoms are outlined in the Magna Carta, or the Great Charter of Freedoms) (Citizenship and Immigration Canada, 2012, p. 8). As well, it should be noted that
Canada is know to have one of the highest tax rates and I believe it is vital for them to save their money in anyway to live a comfortable life when they retire. Though, they are said to focus on achieve quick results for jobs. Which it can be said that Canada is somewhere in the middle of the time orientations and cannot to classified just in to long or short time orientation. However, people must not forget that this is only a generalization of a Canadian Cultural Dimension and does not mean that it will be applicable to every single individuals who lives in Canada. Also, it is very important to note the fact that Canada is a multinational culture and there are differences among provinces and between Anglophone Canadians and French
