Benefits for Immigrants
- What is multiculturalism?
- A long history of acceptance
- Diverse societies have much to offer
Multiculturalism exists when people accept and encourage many cultures to thrive in a society. Multiculturalism can lead to many great outcomes, including racial and ethnic harmony, which simply means that people from different backgrounds get along well together. Living with and accepting different cultures helps us understand each other and discourage hatred and violence
Canada officially became a multicultural society in 1971 when the government began to recognize the value and dignity of Canadians of all races and ethnic groups, all languages and all religions. At this time, the government also recognized the value and dignity of Aboriginal peoples and the equal status of Canada’s two official languages: English and French.
Canada promotes multiculturalism by encouraging all Canadians to take part in all aspects of life. People of every race and ethic background can join in social, cultural, economic and political affairs. Everyone in Canada is equal. Everyone has a right to be heard. These rights are guaranteed through our Canadian Constitution and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
- All children in Canada receive an education
In Canada, the government provides an education for every child free of charge. Public education is paid for through taxes and is administered by the provinces and territories in cooperation with local school boards.
Depending on the province or territory, public education begins at age four or five. Children must continue to receive an education until age 15 or 16, according to the law in the province or territory in which the child lives.
