Canada is the home of immigrants. All
Canadians are immigrants except the native people.
Multiculturalism was adopted as the official policy of the
Canadian government during the premiership of Pierre Elliot
Trudeau in the 1970s and 1980s. Since then, the Canadian
government has often been described as the instigator of
multicultural ideology because of its public emphasis on the
social importance of immigration.
Multiculturalism is reflected in the law
through the Canadian Multiculturalism Act and section 27 of the
Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. In recent years,
approximately 300,000 people immigrated to Canada every year.
The newcomers settle mostly in the major urban areas of Toronto,
Vancouver and Montreal.
Canadian society is often depicted as being
very progressive, diverse, and multicultural. Racism is a
serious crime in Canada.
Since both English and French are the official
languages in Canada and there are many ethnic communities in the
major cities, the language barrier to new immigrants in Canada
is one of the lowest in the world.
Numerous outdoor activities, wildlife, sceneries,
clean environment, better welfare, legal, health and education
systems are the main attractions of Canada.
