Multicultural perspectives in Canada


People can maintain their culture after migrating to another country by connecting with other people in the same culture or by attending certain practices that are held in the country, such as church, or restaurants that serve foods from different countries, such as Korean, Chinese, Mexican, etc..


Racism is a big problem basically everywhere, and this would also be a large problem that would discourage people from wanting to stay associated in their own culture, due to all of the people thinking poorly of it and anyone involved. Another thing would be the stigma behind some cultures not being respectful. People could think that a place is going to be more excluding of their culture than they are due to the stigmas behind that place.


How do you identify Canada being Canadian?

The news article here states that Canada has hosted a ‘pride house’ at the Olympics. This shows that Canada is very inclusive towards everyone, including people apart of the LGBT community. To me, this does show Canadian Identity because I see places everywhere including as many people as possible, and not excluding people because of their race, gender, etc. I think nowadays, most cultures would think that Canada is a very inclusive country, as Canada has welcomed refugees as well, which means that we’re helping them out by giving them a place to stay.


Meanwhile, the blog post here says that Canada has the most kind economy in the world. The author realized once he moved to Canada that Canadians are united by their differences, making them become stronger than otherwise, as they respect each other regardless. Where I’ve been, the large majority of the people tend to help others out when needed, showing kindness towards each other. We also have a very diverse economy that are all respected by others. Since Canada is known to be a peaceful country, most cultures would again, probably agree that Canadians would be very kind, but might not say that they are the kindest people in the world.
