Canada is a free country where every individual has his/her rights. In Canada, human rights are protected by federal, provincial, and territorial laws. (“How are human rights protected in Canada?”) The Canadian charter of rights and freedom of 1982 is a part of Canada's constitution and protects every single canadians right to be treated equally and fairly under the law. The Charter has given everyone the ability to participate in society, and guarantees values of respect, tolerance, and fairness. It protects fundamental freedoms, democratic rights, mobility rights, legal rights, and language rights. (“ Rights and freedoms in Canada.”) Equality rights are also important to Canada as women have been through unequal treatment. Legal instruments like the Charter of rights and freedom and the Canadian Human Rights Act also protect equality for women. Today women are able to do whatever a man can. They've been given right to vote, own property, earn a fair wage and be recognized as individuals under the law. (“Canadian History of Women’s Rights.”)
Canada is an amazing country. Every citizen has freedom, rights, and all are respected and valued. There is equality between men and women. This is one of the bigger ones because countries in Asia, women have little to no rights. I am extremely grateful for living in a country such as Canada where I as a girl, soon to be women have the same rights as a man. I am able to speak up, do what I like, and be who I want to be. I don't have to be controlled by anyone or be forced into doing anything as a child as well. This country is full of opportunities and having these basic human rights to survive really makes me realize and appreciate all I have and all I can do in this world. Canadians should be thankful each and everyday where they get to live a life they chose to have. Everyone is free and as long as you obey the law, you're able to do what you want.
