To start things off, the Inuit native tribe live in northern Canada unlike the other native tribes. The Inuit lived in houses instead of tents or long shelters. The inuit mostly hunted on land. The inuit would not fish, they would hunt things that live in water, but they would not fish. The Inuit also have great art, they would use parts of animals, stone, and driftwood for their carvings.
Canada has a very rich history, despite being a younger country than most. This history constitutes many different methods, good or bad, that Canadians have tried in order to develop a significant national identity. For instance, Canada played an important role in both of the World Wars in attempts to establish a distinct national identity on the global stage. After World War Two, Canada joined the United Nations and began performing peacekeeping missions to provide aid to countries, thus creating a new facet to the Canadian national identity. However, Canada has also used unjust methods, such as establishing residential schools as a way to assimilate the First Nations into the government’s idea of what Canadian national identity should be.
This essay will be about the Irish immigration to Canada between the years of 1840 and 1869. I believe the Irish successfully immigrated to Canada because they successfully integrated themselves into Canadian society. There were many challenges and some followed the Irish to Canada.
The need for human interaction is universal. One way to fulfil this concept is through the action of communication. Throughout the constant developments in history, many desire to establish a unqiue nation that defines their culture. There are many significante factors that contribute to one 's nation 's identity. Through an authority figure, many were able to have a voice in the decisions about their country. 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.
They respected the earth and the animal people. A huge custom of the Ojibway people was when they would get assigned an animal. Even when Oona became a woman and started working on a farm they still practiced the old customs and the old way of
Pearson played an integral role in creating Canada’s reputation as a peacekeeping nation. He first proposed peacekeeping missions to the UN in 1956. He also helped create the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Without John Diefenbaker, Canadians might still struggle with human rights. He had a vision for “One Canada”, free of discrimination; he introduced the first Canadian Bill of Rights in 1958.
In conclusion to all of these paragraphs that I wrote and erased and wrote again, you should have learned about the similarities and differences between the Inuits and the Iroquois. The life lesson that I learned while researching, was that, YOU CAN’T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER! Seriously, YOU CAN’T! So don’t, because you don’t know until you
In this day and age, today’s countries and their cultures are immensely different and unique in comparison to each other. China and Canada are no exceptions. The Chinese, known for their famous silk production and their Great Wall of China, hold an impressive history ranging over 5000 years. Canada on the other hand, has only been in the game for 150 years. The British colonization in 1867 had a major impact on the First Nations and has left a serious mark on their community.
Making Canada great Again From 1942-1949 the Canadian government was responsible for the cruel internment of Japanese citizens in Canada. Ever since the first sailor Manzo-Nagano arrived in New Westminster, BC Japanese have experienced prejudice. Early BC settlers were extremely conscious of there ethnic origin and were extremely concerned with the racial origins of immigrants, they became obsessed with eliminating “undesirables” and as a result passed laws preventing them from voting, working in mines and other government funded projects.
The French-Canadians in Lower Canada did not trust the British, they didn’t speak English, and they found British rule without democracy difficult to accept. Control of the colony was in the hands of an oligarchy of merchants and ex-army officers. English seemed to have most of the advantages which made the French feel like their culture was being attacked. Discrimination against the French, unequal taxation and lack of power within the government became the main focus of reform in Lower Canada. The French-Canadians preferred a democratic government. Especially, after being exposed to the ideas of the French and American revolutions, and to the democracy of the United States.
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.
n the twentieth century the Government of Canada decided to increase the number of immigrants coming into Canada, this step was taken to include individuals from countries where English was not the first language. The immigration policy led to an inflow of immigrants from all over the world. Now Canada welcomes between 240,000 to 265,000 people each year (Government of Canada, n.d.). An immigrant is a person who moves from their home country to another country for permanent residency (Merriam Webster, n.d.). The highest number of immigrants come from the Philippines (Government of Canada, n.d.). Coming to a new country has many barriers such as social, and economical barriers. Immigration into Canada is important because the local population is getting older and the birth rate is declining
Indigenous people were self-governing long before Europeans arrived in Canada but in 1876, the Indian Act came into effect, dismantling traditional governance systems and Indigenous peoples ' lives (Bc Treaty Commission). Today, the Federal government recognizes that Indigenous people have an inherent, constitutionally protected right to self-government, a right to manage their own affairs (Bc Treaty Commission). Self-government agreements are one means of building sound governance and institutional capacity that allow Aboriginal communities to contribute to, and participate in, the decisions that affect their lives and carry out effective relationships with other governments (Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada). Thus, this essay explains
Introduction: When we think about culture, we automatically associate it with all of the stereotypes that are known. However, many of us never actually take the effort to find out the true culture of a place, which is why when we go to other countries we are clueless as to the culture and its practices. I believe that it is important to learn about the culture and any relevant information about a country before going there, which is why I have decided to look into the culture of the country Canada and its social practices. The country of Canada is in the continent of North America and it is well known for the friendly culture and open minded citizens.
