(where all members of society are treated equally)
EQUALITY, EQUITY & INEQUALITY IN CANADA
EVERY CITIZEN IS ENTITLED TO THE EXACT SAME BENEFITS WITHOUT REGARD FOR THEIR NEEDS, AND BELIEFS.
THE ACHIEVEMENT OF FINAL EQUALITY WITH DIFFERENT MEANS. INDIVIDUALLY HELPING EACH CITIZEN TO ALLOW EVERYONE TO BE ON THE SAME LEVEL.
THE UNBALANCE OF GOODS, WEALTH, EDUCATION, OPPORTUNITIES, RESPECT IN SOCIETY
policies or practices that prevent full or equal participation in society
Aboriginal youth were banned from high school education between the 18 – 1900’s
The residential schools striped the youth of their cultural traditions and religious beliefs
1/3rd of the aboriginal population compared to 60% of the white population went passed the third grade in the mid 1900’s
In 2008 the federal government issued an apology towards the aboriginal people In regard to all the abuse they sustained
In 2006 the Indian residential school settlement agreement awarded first nations people 1.9 billion dollars in an attempt to help ease the pain
Many cases being reported today consist of abuse and discrimination that is purposed onto aboriginal people
Many rights of aboriginal peoples have been tarnished and removed as their opinions and voices are suppressed
The aboriginal population makes up 4% of Canada's total population while aboriginal people make up 24% of the imprisoned people in Canada
Aboriginal Inequality in Canada
Exploitation caused by European expansion throughout the 16-1700’s, resulting in land loss, disease, a loss of community and culture.
The proclamation acknowledging aboriginal territorial rights was signed in 1763.
In the mid 1800’s the colonized government in Canada had begun to push aboriginals away from growing European populations into reserves
In 1895 many restrictions and cultural losses were imposed when the banning of the Sundance and potlatch arose
Repetition of concept ( dominant ideology while explaining factors contributing inequality)
Negative points are more highlighted in the chapter ( I think scenario is not that bad means Canada actually is a multicultural nation)
Case study about Aboriginals is bit longer ( other inequalities that are persistent at the moment could be discussed)
Inequality based on language is not discussed ( bilingual requirements for honorable jobs)
The inequality faced by immigrants who are not citizens, is not discussed. (fees of international students is approximately double)
Income equality is discussed only in Ontario, there should be comparison of different provinces (high wages in Alberta)
Low level of education or skill
Single parent: income inequality
