Canada is a country that is known as a "mosaic" of people and cultures, meaning; it opens it arms to immigrant families and gives them the freedom to express their own cultural values, ideas, beliefs and customs. It is this system that welcomes thousands and thousands of immigrants a year with open arms and the idea of a better life. This idea however, is sometimes not always as easy as it is thought to be. Though Canada is an amazing country for immigrants to start a new life and get better education, health care, and job opportunities, immigrant families are met with many challenges before they are able to become accustom to their new life. It is important to understand the true difficulty of the "Immigrant Experience" and the impact it has on families including adults as well as children. If it is easier to understand the difficulties immigrant families go through in search of a better life in Canada there can be more resources made to help them. It is important to take into consideration each individual difficulty that is faced and properly research each factor in order to have a better understanding on how to make the complete economic and societal integration of immigrants happen faster. There is a number of categories that relate to the integration of immigrants into society and a number of steps they must take to be a part of Canadian society. In order to understand these steps they have to be thoroughly researched.
Canada has turned into an attractive place for immigrants from around the globe who are looking for a developed country that will give them good opportunities to succeed in their future. “Over the last few decades, Canadian immigrants have come primarily from these ten countries: China, India, Pakistan, the Philippines, South Korea, the United States, Iran, Romania, the United Kingdom, and Sri Lanka.”( Hughes). Immigration had been the key to Canada’s economy as it benefits it economically and politically. “Immigrants added their cultures, languages, and religions to the mix.” (Ibid, Hughes). New comer’s have a positive impact on Canadian society. They have contributed to Canada’s economy in so many ways but most importantly they have contributed by providing and assisting in skills and labour shortage, they have excelled in the educational opportunities offered in Canada and also they bring their culture to Canada when they immigrate here.
Immigrants today now have the privilege of entering and residing in Canada but along with this privilege, there are also barriers that impede their integration and deprive them of equal opportunity in the society. The undervaluing of foreign education and credentials has emerged over the years as a huge obstacle faced by recent immigrants who seek employment in the areas that they have been trained, and worked in for decades in their respective home countries. For years, newcomers in Canada have been denied inclusion into the Canadian labour market simply because of policies that were
Canada is a nation built on immigration, and as the world becomes an ever increasingly hostile place more and more have chosen to try and make Canada their home. This melting pot of different cultures has created an overall atmosphere of acceptance, and is teaching younger generations a sense of community, empathy, and togetherness. Sharing our space and learning to grow with different ethnicities has perpetuated our status as a friendly, caring, and loyal nation, that many are willing to risk everything for in exchange for becoming a part of it.
Health, a basic human rights an important factor for development. Though Women is most societies live longer than men because of biological and behavioural factors (WHO, 2009 p-xi) but WHO is worried that in some societies this factors are subdued by gender base discrimination 2009 report of WHO named “Women and Health stressed that the health needs of women and girls are different from men and are the needs are met far from the expected ones.
As we all know, Canada is an immigrant country. This beautify country attract more and more people who are longing for good future. In 2011, the population of foreign-born in Canada is about 6.7 million. No matter where we are from and what background we have, from the moment we land in Canada as immigrants, there are some problems we need to face to. The commonest three problems are learning a new language, adjusting to a new life-style, and finding a suitable job.
In this person’s article, he/she discusses some of the hardships which many immigrants, may face in Canada. This person talks about how they at first had utopic dreams about Canada: that Canada did not have any “human weaknesses” and that they would find a job and be happy, free from racial discrimination. However, in the viewpoint of the author, this is far from the reality. The author warns about the difficulties of finding a job in Canada: difficulty in communication between the immigrant and the job supplier, lack of trust with the immigrants history in their home country, the fact that many of the jobs are not advertised in places where people can access them, and racism in choosing which person should get the job. Because of this sources personal experience, he/she warns others not to come to Canada. This is the reason that this source was created is to warn other people from facing the same dangers the author did in Canada. This author ends his/her article by saying that “work” is not something you can depend on to find in Canada. The main economic issue regarding immigration that this source addresses is that it is often very hard for newly landed immigrants to get jobs for many reasons. This is a very important problem as the main reason that the immigrants are let into Canada in the first place is to find a job and help Canada's economy.
Racism can affect an individual’s mental health and well-being (Hyman, 2009). In Canada, visible minorities and immigrants who experience discrimination and unfair treatment are more likely to experience emotional/mental problems that manifest as feelings of sadness, depression, and loneliness (De Maio & Kemp, 2010). Moreover, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, and low self-esteem are a few mental health conditions that have been linked to racialized immigrants in Canada (Nestel, 2012). For example, Afghan immigrant youth in Canada can experience low self-esteem, fear, and anxiety due to regular racism and Islamophobia (Nestel, 2012). More specifically in BC, there is evidence that racial discrimination against immigrant parents can have negative effects on
Canada’s immigration policy has got fairer from the middle of the century on to the end of the century. At the start of the century, Canada’s immigration policy, Canada’s immigration policy wasn’t fair but as the century comes to an end, Canada’s immigration policy became entirely different. There were a lot of racism in the first half of the century but most of this racism in the immigration policy disappeared from 1967 and on. As the years go by, Canada’s immigration policy gets a lot reasonable.
In “Immigrants and Canadians, Maintaining Both Identities” by Andrew Cohen, which is part of a segment in the New York Times called “How Immigrants Come to Be Seen as Americans,” Cohen states that Canada is “…unlike virtually every country in Europe, we have no nativist party or institutional xenophobia,” and dubs Canada as a Mosaic of Multiculturalism. Why is this so, and how might the perspective that ‘Canada equals a mosaic’ play a role in this surprising phenomenon?
Canada’s immigration system lacks heart, critics say, is an article filled with professional opinions and debates. These debates and opinions are regarding the humanitarian and compassionate side of immigration and refugee law in Canada. The article’s main purpose is to expose how Canada has changed its compassion for acceptance of refugees in recent years.
Recently, according to Joe Friesen (2012b) reports that Canadian government considers changing immigration policy, but this policy is unfair for most of the immigrants.
Canada is a multicultural country which has a history of providing home for millions of immigrants since 19th century. Modern labor market of Canada heavily relies on immigrants who have higher education and specific skills that are valuable for the market. The number of immigrants steadily grows: in 2017 Canada accepted 300,000 immigrants, while in 2020 it is projected to have nearly 340,000 immigrants. In its turn, immigration helps to balance the aging demographic situation. With growing number of immigrants, the job opportunities would grow as well, and at the same time it would also increase the wage rates for native Canadians. However, the growing gap between the wages of immigrants and Canadians, a lack of opportunities for immigrants to be hired on a senior or middle positions are concerning. For the new immigrants it creates a serious situation. In a new country, the immigrant could not find the job one studied for, having to find a low-skilled job in order to earn money.
Canada is a big country and is built by the immigrants. However it always been a great issues from the seventeenth century boatloads to recent boatloads of Tamil refugees from Sri Lanka. Immigrants and their children were also against to the other refugees who belong to the other regions. Moreover, Canada birthrate was below to the replacement levels but they count on immigrations for the social welfare and economic growth. They are motivated for the work hard and to work at the level of Canadian natives. The immigrations system of Canada also support the educational professionals who often find difficulties in getting jobs. Many cities need labourers for
The quantity of individuals who are into Canada is consistently expanding as seen somewhere around 2001 and 2006, the quantity of remotely conceived individuals expanded by 13.6%, and by, 2006 Canada had developed to have 34 ethnic groups with no less than one hundred thousand individuals each, of which eleven have more than 1,000,000 individuals and various others are spoken to in littler sums. 16.2% of the populace self-distinguishes as a noticeable minority (Statistics Canada, 2011). This massive immigration has ensured that multiculturalism in Canada has never faced any threat of collapse. The Canadians know that the only way different cultures are going to strive in the country is by supporting legal immigration of people from various parts of the world into the country. By allowing the settlement of immigrants, multiculturalism in Canada was being
