Most immigrants from Europe or their descendants have religious backgrounds which respect universal fraternity. Also the multiculturalism makes Canada a "melting pot" for every member in the "pot".

Chapter 2: Canada’s Physical Base emphasizes reasoning for which its physical geography attributes to its regional geography, along with the population distribution and developing core regions. This chapter outlines main geological structure, landforms, climate, and impact on human a...
North, South, East, West and Central- there are definite qualities that detach Prairie from Maritimes, Ontario from Quebec and the Territories from the British Columbia. Each of these regions are separated by how they live, and their different culture background. Which forms our own identites within the counrty. Canadian and American government also show difference in how they govern themselves. United States is a country of one basic language. It has one main language, for its federal government and for every state. Canada is a country of two basic languages, French and English. A second basic difference between our Constitution and the American is that we are a constitutional monarchy and they are republics. For we have a parliamentary-cabinet government, while the Americans have a presidential-congressional. This means that the president is the head of the state and head of the government. While in Canada the Governor General is head of the provinces and the Prime Minister is the head of the government. Parliamentary-cabinet government is based on a concentration of powers. The Prime Minister must by custom be a member of one House or the other, or get a seat in the House. In the United States, the President and every other member of both houses are e...
Since the very beginning of the colonization of Canada in the late 15th century, there has been a dispute and anger between the British and the French. This arguing is also present in the ongoing conflict between the French-speaking region of Quebec and the rest of Canada. The conflict has been discussed in the Canadian parliament and this is also the origin of the idea that Quebec should be an independent nation. The first part of the essay will cover the general history behind the dispute between Quebec and the rest of Canada. Then the essay will go on to discuss the positive and negative sides of a possible separation. The final part of the essay will compare the situation in Canada with the separation of Pakistan and East Pakistan in the 1970’s. Then go on to conclude whether or not a secession is possible for Quebec. Therefore, my research question is; is there a possibility that the province of Quebec could separate from the rest of Canada?
Every country in the world has its own cultural uniqueness. What makes Canada even more unique than other countries is the fact that it is a melting-pot of many other cultures. What happened when all these cultures came together and started having contact with each other is that each culture proved itself exclusive but somewhat compatible with the other cultures. That may have caused people of different ethnic groups not to bond in such successful ways; nevertheless there still exists a strong attachment between an individual and their roots. That fusion and unity of the different cultures in this country makes its economy unique.
Who are Canadians? There’s no clear definition. A thousand years ago, Canadians were Native Americans and 300 years ago, Canadians were French settlers. Today there is not one single definition of who we are. People have moved to Canada from all corners of the globe. No longer are we fur hat wearing court Dubois, or soldiers from the British army. Very few Canadians can say they truly come from North America. Were a hodge podge collage of all different ethnicities, religions and languages, but all Canadians share one thing; their home. We live in such a diverse society hat is made up of people all over the world. But this culture and way of life didn’t just magically appear; it took years of interactions and influences. With the help of the ongoing French Canadian’s struggle for cultural and linguistic recognition, to the success story of the Vimy Ridge, to our unique Canadian Charter of rights, Canada has become an independent multicultural nation.
Notorious to the world for the stability and security, Canadians pride themselves on the unprejudiced law integrated in the Canadian identity. Under which all citizens are considered equal. Made possible by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms; where all citizen are given the fundamental rights needed by an individual. The Charter of Rights and Freedoms further ensures that theses rights are applicable to all, under Guarantee of Rights and Freedoms; eliminating any possibility of discrimination within or by the political system of Canada. Therefore, the citizens living in Canada does not need to feel the fear of unjust ruling or those with power. The evidence of this is shown through media’s involvement

The culture of Canada refers to the shared values, attitudes, standards, and beliefs that are a representative of Canada and Canadians throughout Canada's history, its culture has been influenced by American culture because of a shared language, proximity, television and migration between the two countries. Overtime, Canadian-American relations have helped develop Canada’s identity during the years 1945-1982; thus introducing changing social norms , media and entertainment. In support of this, due to the United States being approximately 9.25 times larger in population and having the dominant cultural and economic influence it played a vital role in establishing Canada’s identity. With Canada being its neighbour, naturally, the United States would influence their way of life upon Canada. In other words,
For Canadians media is something that they take pride in. For example “many Canadian artists, writers, directors and musicians have become world famous for their contributions.”(Kalera). When it comes to historical attributes Canada is known for covering most of northern America, also in the east, the precipitous oceanic areas have an unpredictable coastline on the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the Atlantic. When it comes to political geography, Canada has a parliamentary political framework acquired from the British
Canada has many geographic region, the largest of it all is the Canadian Shield. The Canadian Shield covers about 4,800,000 kilometres squared, or about 50% of Canada. The Canadian Shield is so big that it also covers some parts of the United States. Also the Canadian Shield is the geographic foundation of Canada. The Canadian Shield has thin soil so it’s ill suited for farming, but it is well suited for the mining industry. Also the Canadian Shield has large amounts of forestry's within its geographic region. It also has scenic river, waterfalls, and lakes. The Canadian Shield has vast amounts of water within its region that it is used for generating energy in hydro plants. And that’s the characteristics of the Canadian Shield, the largest
With its 600,000 square miles of land area, it is the largest province in the country. “If this province were ever to secede from Canada, it would become the world’s 18th largest country in land area—more than twice the size of Texas and three times the size of France”(Hardwick, 2013, p. 109). Quebec takes up nearly one-sixth of Canadas’s total land area and is second in population (Ontario is first). In Figure 1, you can see the massive size of Quebec as compared to the rest of North America (WorldAtlas.com). Quebec has a predominantly French-speaking population with French being the official language of the province. Most people that live in Quebec live near the Saint Lawrence River between Montreal and Quebec City, the capital of the province.
Canada has a long standing tradition of having a culturally diverse population, stating with the formation of New France in 1534 and continuing on with British North America in 1763. With the large area of the country and the small population these cultures where able to maintain their heritages while becoming one united country in 1867. While the United States prides itself on being a cultural melting pot, Canada prides itself on being a cultural mosaic. Instead of assimilating into the already formed communities that where in Canada, each new Culture that immigrated into the country migrated into a new spot and adapted with their own practices. This makes Canada one of the world leaders in Multicultural policies,
