Some of these french communities are the Bonnie Doon part of Edmonton, and St. Paul which is in the northern part of Alberta. In communities like these, there are thousands of French speaking people. Alberta has many french speaking communities. Collective rights are important to Canadian's as individuals, because it is what allows us to show our true identity. If we did not have collective rights, there would be discrimination of race, gender, etc. And many people would be upset with it. Collective rights helps us to show our identity, which makes our quality of life good. Collective rights helps people who live in Canada to stay happy and get the voice and equality they deserve. Francophone Rights By: Lesley, Lexi, Kamryn All Canadians Collective Rights By: Lesley, Lexi, and Kamryn Collective Rights Canada is the only country in the world that has collective rights. They believe that every one has the right to have their own religion, race, opinion, etc. and that this makes up our identity. Many other countries believe that this is too hard to do, but Canada thinks otherwise. Everyone has the rights that they have in there identity. Ex: An aboriginal women would have the rights of a Canadian women, and Aboriginal rights, which means that she would have rights to the Indian Act. How do Laws Recognize the Status of Aboriginal People in Canada? By: Lesley, Lexi, Kamryn The Indian Act The Indian Act is an act that has been made to show the special rights that Aboriginal people have. We give Aboriginal people these certain rights, because when the British first came to Canada, they were unfair to the First Nations and forced them to go to their schools, and learn their language, religion, etc. Forcing them to forgot their heritage. Some of these rights are rights to live on reserved land, special hunting rights, and they get healthcare and eye glasses payed for by the government.
