Multiculturalism In Canada
Canada accepts people from all around the world. Multiculturalism in Canada means all types of religions and colors are allowed to live in Canada. Multiculturalism was adopted into Canada in 1971. This is allowed to happen all over Canada. All people were welcomed regardless of their racial or ethnic origins, their language, or their religion. Canada believes that all people should be treated equal even if they weren't born here.
These three things about Canada are only a little part of what makes me proud to call myself a Canadian. Ice hockey brings many people together and it is something all Canadians can relate on. Also, Canada Day is probably one of the best recaps of a Canadians year. It's a day that makes us feel proud about where we were born. Multiculturalism in Canada makes me the most proud. The fact that our country allows people struggling all around the world to come live a good life and provide their family with better resources is one of the best things any country can do. Therefore this is why all Canadians should be proud about where they are from!
