This essay will show you how Canada was at the turn of the century in 1896 to 1919. A lot of points show how Canada was at the turn of the century such as how Canada was at a time of social change, the immigrants in Canada come from all over the world, Chinese were treated horribly, a lot of racism factored into this. Also, Canada was in a time of economic uprise, this can be characterized by electricity, inventions, the growth of cities, and some other contributing factors. Free trade laws with the United States were also in a heavy debate at the time.
Canada’s media industries have played a huge role in the Canadian culture. The Canadian culture has integrated with other countries forming a successful globalization. Many countries including the United States have contributed to the success in Canada’s media industries. The success of globalization between all of the countries was predicted by Marshall McLuhan and ever since his prediction, the world can be depicted as a global village. The global village can be viewed as a tool, a tool that is bringing the world together, despite the different languages, locations, and diverse cultures. With new technologies being developed more often, the communication skills between different countries are very successful. Canada’s diversity in their media and policies has established a global village with people around the world, allowing them to relate to the Canadian culture.
Former prime minister, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, believed greatly in what he thought Canada was to become. “The nineteenth century was the century of the United States. I think that we can claim that is it Canada that shall fill the twentieth century. “ was said by Laurier and his words passed almost without notice at the time. However, it did not take long before his words had somehow been transformed into the most famous phrase in Canadian history, “The twentieth century belongs to Canada.” His words showed great confidence and pride in the actions that Canada was supposedly to take to fulfill his vision. He believed that Canada would fill the century, not in size or military might but in progress, growth, and quality of life. Ultimately, he
Being Canadian is so much more than just the cliché stereotype of living in igloos, playing hockey 24/7, and drinking Tim Hortans coffee every day. Being a part of the Canadian culture means that all Canadians are unified as one big family. Culture is defined as “a set of human made objective and subjective elements that have increased the probability of survival, and resulted in satisfaction for the participants” (Samovar, 1991). Every culture has their own attitudes, customs and beliefs that differentiate one culture from another. Canadian culture can be very distinctive from other cultures. Usually the first impression of Canadians is that we are very polite and we live in an extremely friendly and accepting country. Being Canadian is about having big hearts and appreciating our diverse environment. Our country shares a wide variety of different ethnic backgrounds which makes being Canadian unique.
At Temple City Unified School District, I have been able to participate in many meetings regarding the pediatric population health. We have discussed various topics related to the pediatric population, including primary prevention of obesity in children as well as mental health. These are important topics that are normally brushed over. I believe that the student wellness team is what is behind all of these discussion/changes and they are very effective in all that they do. Additionally, I have been able to attend more SARB meetings, which stands for student academic review board meetings. These meetings are important because it is the last resort for these students because they are truant in their courses. The support and education that the academic board provides is paramount to any consequence or punishment. I was also able to visit the high school and elementary schools with the LVNs. During these days, there were many focused assessments performed.
Government: Ontario has a different type of government than us. To start that they have a different “headquarters” than us. Their ‘headquarters’ is in Toronto. As if ours is in Washington, D.C, as we all know is in the white house. They started their government in 1867 or before. We started ours in 1776-1789. 1789 was when the USA came together as an independent country. That is when we started creating a new constitution, and establishing its national government. In order to start their traditional rights, American Patriots took control of the colonies and started a war for independence.
There were three main groups that suffered and struggled through many obstacles and a lot of people setting them back; women, First Nations people, and immigrants and minorities. This prejudice caused a significant negative impact on the Canadian society during the 1920s. In the roaring twenties, many people believed that only white men should be treated with any respect because that was the status quo at the time. The status of women was improving as some women got the right to vote, a woman was elected a member of parliament, and women were now legally considered “persons”, but women were still treated horribly and with little respect or dignity. The First Nations people as a whole were greatly mistreated because of the federal government and the non-first nations, Canadians believed that the First Nations people would be more content, giving up their religion, heritage, and culture and become more mainstream Canadian Christian. In addition, immigrants and minorities in Canada during this time also suffered greatly because of the prejudice against them and the fact that the Canadian government frowned upon all immigration that was not from another Commonwealth country, a European country, or did not involve white Americans.
I attended the IPS school board meeting on February 23, 2016 at 6pm. The meeting took place at 120 East Walnut Street. There was about 60-70 people there. There were people who was helping to conduct the meeting. They also had tables set up close to the front to where people were sitting. They also had rows for anyone who wanted to listen to the meeting. Police officers were also by the door. There were a variety of topics discussed last night. The topics that was discussed were bus tracking, increasing teacher’s salary, treatment of black kids and segregation in education, shortage of teachers and kids acting out, a group of parent’s helping improve reading scores, and a new system called naviance.
250,000 displaced persons (or DP’s for short) were placed in Canada, they fled their homes as a result of the second world war and the formation of the communist government in the Soviet Union. All of these people were assimilated into Canadian culture and most people were separated from their families, but were eventually reunited.
The date is 2019, and civilization has been devastated. During the month of June, a huge solar flare has hit the Earth and has wiped out all systems communication and power. The impact has destroyed technology such as: satellites, GPS, wireless networks, and the power grid. It may take several years to repair the damage it has caused and it will cost the world trillions of dollars. Individuals must use old tactics or discover new ways to combat day-to-day problems. In this paper, I will discuss the changes in Canadian culture and tackle the reason why these political, economic, technological, social environment, family and belief systems have transformed.
Canadian Political Culture, in a nation- state context, can be break down as beliefs and attitudes that Canadian have of political objects( Jackson, Politics in Canada.1994).

It provided information that correlated to the material in class and a perspective on what situations as a future teacher I may experience.
Although Canada and the United States share the same continent, they are divided by their unique ideas and views. After WWI ,Canada broke its ties with Britain and new independent nation was born with a unique culture. This new culture developed through the Canadian citizens. As a Canadian citizen, Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie helped achieve autonomy from Britain and solidify national unity at home. Canadian inventor ,Fredrick Banting ,maintained his culture as Canadian and contributed to the world through his invention of insulin. Many artists, authors, actors , actresses and athletes have played their part in Canadian culture. During the 1920s and 1930s, Canada asserted independence from Britain and the United States to develop
Each and every one of the world's many nations is unique in its own way. No two nations are the same in terms of the way they live. Whether it is driving on the right or left side of the road, pronouncing words a certain way or using hand gestures to communicate different meanings, each nation of the world has something that allows it to stand out. This uniqueness can come from certain religions, cultural practices, geography, history or from a multitude of other reasons. Despite this, a unique nation usually gains its originality and identity from its people. The way the people interact, live, work, play and have come to exist dictate how others perceive them as a culture. Canada is a provocative country with a divergent population.
