Realizing the new country where I will spend the rest of my life made me feel overwhelmed. Moving to the opposite side of the world changed the way I viewed the world. When my mother got a call from my dad, I could tell she was both excited and worried. He told my mom that we are all moving to Canada as he got a wonderful job there. First my mom was excited as it was her first time outside of India and she was also
The Canadian opinion on migrants is mostly positive as this country was built and strengthened by immigration. My own parents immigrated to Canada in 1998 and my family is incredibly grateful that they did. Canada has offered my family so many opportunities that would not be available had my parents stayed in South Africa. I define Canada’s national identity with ideas like “multiculturalism” and “internationalism”
Throughout Canadian history, free trade in particular has changed Canada and it’s economy for the better. The free trade agreement (FTA) signed in 1989, assisted Canada’s economy in many ways, such as removing most of the tariffs on trade goods, increasing trade with the USA, and leading the way to the creation and signing of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). All of these boosted Canada’s economy and strengthened the bonds with new and old trade partners. After this agreement was established, it becomes clear very quickly that the FTA was exactly what Canada needed. As well as opened new doors to opportunities for Canada.
Canadian farmers and miners shipped their products overseas for a good price. Another honorable moment for Canada was when the during the beginning of the world war 2 kings opinion and thought was about keeping Canada along side the British in order to claim victory, it proved that the king knew about the strength and the capabilities of the Canadian men and soldier, an year after fighting along with Britishers Canada spend time with the US resolving the problem, the ties between two nation started getting stronger and hence they

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.
My father and my mother discussed that it was better for the future of their children if they immigrated or traveled to another country that was very peaceful and a perfect place to live in. After some research on the best countries to immigrate to, my parents finally decided to immigrate to Canada. On March 11th, 1999, my dad received a letter stating that he got a recommendation from a large company in Canada as a senior project engineer. He was elated and was very excited because good things were happening and this gave him hope that his immigration to Canada will be successful. That night, my parents dreamt of a happy life in Canada where the environment is beautiful and it is very peaceful.
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
Berry suggests that western and northern European immigrants are frequently considered as more positively than origins ( Berry, 2013). As a result, European background Canadians are easier to find jobs. Data from the article “Analysis of the Canadian Immigrant Labor Market, 2008 to 2011” illustrates that European background Canadians occupied the most range of proportion in a pie chart of the labor force rate in Canada ( CIC, 2013). In addition, the Euro centrism also affects the participation of politics. Most of the politicians are European background Canadians.
Although the Victorian Era was known for its economic growth, the truth behind the hardships that children faced in order to survive were heartbreaking. With Queen Victoria’s sixty-four-year reign, England’s population doubled, having more money than ever before (Glencoe 907/Glencoe 916). However, with this growth, became the struggle of raising children. The “probability of becoming abandoned became greater because the work doubled for the single parent in trying to sustain the family” (Nierendorf). Victorians believed in the value of work, being known as “the workshop of the world” (Glencoe 907).
At the time Newfoundland joined with Canada, the average income of the colony was one-third of the Canadian average and the death rate associated with diseases of poverty was three times higher. Joey Smallwood’s promised reforms would mean the new province would be able to enjoy a higher standard of living. This ultimately encompassed “a healthier population, less TB, a lower infant mortality: better care for the aged and blind, and war vets, too…”⁴ All of these aspects contributed greatly to the overall prosperity and security enjoyed by Newfoundlanders after joining Canada and continues to benefit them today. 3.Waterson, Adam G. "Letter to the Editor." Editorial.
I think that Canada is one of the most livable countries to live in. I say this because we are high life expectancy, primary school enrollment, and GDP. Canada 's HDI is also very high which proves that it is one of the most livable countries. Canada 's life expectancy is 84/80 years. This is really good because it shows that we have a good healthcare system, and the population in Canada is more likely to increase than decrease.
The Fate of the Ukrainian Language in Canada After waves of migration, the Ukrainian language became one of the best-maintained mother tongues amongst settlers in Canada. Over time, with the influence of English, Ukrainian began to experience significant developments on the phonetic, lexical and syntactic levels. With more than a century of history, the Canadian variant of the Ukrainian language has now approached a transition into endangerment, even with numerous efforts by the government to curb such an outcome. Although the first wave of Ukrainian immigration to Canada is often cited as the 1890s, there is suggestive evidence of an earlier Ukrainian presence on the North American continent. It is reasonable that as early as 1784 there were
A country’s social security system is very important, as it directly relates to the happiness and wellbeing of its citizens. During this time period, Canada’s social security system advanced greatly, specifically with the Canadian Pension Plan and the Medical Care Act. Although an Old Age Pension Act was already introduced in 1927, this program only provided benefits for seniors who had an annual income that was less than $350. With the economic improvement following World War 2, seniors faced the problem of inflation because their pensions were tied to minimum income levels rather than the cost of living. In 1951, Louis St. Laurent fixed this issue by introducing the Old Age Security Act and Old Age Assistance Act, the first pensions that
