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. The way they cheer for their athletes, during the Olympics and other sports, shows how proud they are to wear the red and white maple flag to support them.
Of the former, the answer appears to be no. If a concentration is defined by a neighbourhood with over 50% of residents identifying themselves as a person of Indigenous decent, only one such Canadian urban neighbourhood – in Winnipeg – would qualify (Peters, 169, 2010). Indigenous people are obviously not evenly distributed among urban neighbourhoods, as few ethnic groups are, but the lack of apparent segregation is a generally positive finding. In the most recent federal election, 2015, 10 people identifying themselves as people of Indigenous descent were elected to Parliament (Fontaine, 2015). Of these 10, 5 represent ridings which can be defined as rural, and 5 which are urban.
Gretzky has won ten Art Ross trophies, five Ted Lindsay awards, one Lester Patrick trophy, nine Hart Memorial trophies, two Conn Smythe awards, five Lady Byng Memorial trophies, four Stanley Cups, and he got his number retired (NHL.com). Winning these awards takes a long time and effort and Wayne Gretzky won many of them, which took him a long time of hard work. Wayne Gretzky's stats show that he had played in 1,487 games and had 2,857 points which 849 are goals and 1,963 are assists (NHL.com). This shows how he was an all around good player because he would pass and also shoot. When Wayne Gretzky had just started playing in the NHL he scored fifty goals in fifty games (Edmund).
Ontario, Canada 's most populous province with a population of more than 13.5 million, accounts for nearly 40 percent of all Canadians. To render healthcare services to people in Ontario through hospitals, clinics and other medical facilities, registered nurses and specialty nurse practitioners are needed more than ever in Ontario. In present scenario, the biggest population of baby boomers who were born between 1946 and 1964 is getting old. As a result, their health care needs are also increasing at a rapid pace. At this time, the province’s ratio of 72 nurses to every 100,000 people lags behind the nation’s average of 83 nurses to every 100,000 Canadians.
¬¬¬Canada is known worldwide, as a multi-cultured and accepting society¬¬¬. Canada is recognized as understanding of all genders, races, ages, sex orientations, and all religions. Canada shows this acceptance in the collective morals of society, but also in the legal system. However not every country is like Canada.

As friendly neighbors, Americans often view Canada as being quite similar to their homeland in many ways. On the surface we all look pretty much the same, talk pretty much the same, and seem to have many similar interests, however once you scratch the surface it becomes clear just how much difference a border can make. The most evident physical differences are land mass and population. Although Nations Online Project (2016) identifies Canada as the second largest country in the world by land mass, the U.S. ranks third in the world for population size, containing a hefty 324,057,079 people, while Canada places modestly in thirty-eighth with a population of 36,307,894, almost two hundred ninety million fewer than the U.S. Geography and Housing
Immigrants are also an important group to consider when defining Canada’s national identity as a multicultural nation. Canada has been taking immigrants and refugees for hundreds of years and will hopefully continue to do so. Each immigrant has a unique understanding of Canadian national identity as each is incorporated with different foreign cultures. Many immigrants value the freedom, rights, safety, and security that Canada provides them with. The Canadian opinion on migrants is mostly positive as this country was built and strengthened by immigration.

Some of these roles were very beneficial to our future. Some of the major roles were with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, United Nations and North American Air Defense Agreement. These roles have created a more open country.
12 Dec. 2016. In conclusion, Newfoundland made the right decision in joining Confederation. This was because of Canada delivering on its promise to provide Newfoundland with family allowance, and investing in roads and infrastructure projects, and relieving the debts of the province. Newfoundlands decision of joining confederation ultimately shaped it into the successful province that it is today. I personally believe that we would not be saying the same had it not joined with Canada, which illustrates the true extent to which Newfoundlanders enjoyed prosperity
