Transcript of Historical Legacies

Residential Schools Residential schools were where First Nations children gathered to live, study, and work.
These schools were set up to isolate
children from the influence of their
homes, families, culture, and tradition;
assimilating them into the dominant
culture. Immigration When both French and English were
recognized as the official languages of
government and courts, diversity has been
Canada's characteristic. By Jonalyne Four Historical Legacies
in Canada The Seven Years' War Early French Rule The French government wanted to attract settlers, to strengthen control of New France. Children who attended residential schools were abused, and ripped out of their First Nation culture. Many students had a difficult time relating to others about how they felt in the school, and resorted to violence on loved ones. Former students were denied parental love and that has affected their own children. I rated the Seven Years' of War... The Seven Years' of War changed relations between Britain, France, their colonies and colonist, and the natives in North America. I rated Residential Schools.... "I brought them up in a pretty horrible way — didn't know how to parent, didn't know how to show love,"
said Peguis First Nation elder Josie Bear. The Effects of Residential Schools in Canada I rated Immigration.... Domestic violence among Aboriginal families results in a cycle of abuse over generations. These children grow up to feel like they are neither truly Aboriginal nor part of the dominant society. Canada's First Nations are losing their culture, because of parents not being able to pass their aboriginal traditions to their children. First Nations women attempt suicide eight times more that Canadian women, while First Nations men attempt suicide five times more than Canadians men. According to the Manitoba Justice Institute, residential schools laid the foundation of today's domestic abuse and violence against Aboriginal women and children. http://www.ajic.mb.ca/volumel/chapter13.html http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/manitoba/story/2010/06/14/mb-residential-school-parents-manitoba.html Seigneurs, who were people of noble birth, were responsible for recruiting settlers that would clear and farm the land In the Seven Years' of War, competition
between France and Britain erupted.

Britain was the dominant colonial power
in North America after the War in 1763. The Royal Proclamation of 1763, issued by King George III, was a way to govern Britain's new North American territories and to attract British settlers. The Effects of The Seven Years' of War in Canada The conquest made Canada a British colony with British institutions, including parliamentary government and the monarchy, and a dominant Anglophone population. I believe the Seven Years' of
War is the first global conflict that has spread around the world, resulting in violence in Canada but also around the world. The Proclamation reserved a large part of the interior of the continent to First Nation that was intended to maintain peace with them. Today, Canada has two official languages, English and French. The official languages of the two imperial powers competing for territories and trade at the time. I rated French Settlers... People from all over the world have migrated to Canada, giving this country a diversity of cultures, languages, perspectives, and points of view. 9.5 An important legacy of historical globalization in Canada is immigration Immigrants have helped make a positive contribution to Canada's development. But a negative aspect of immigration is the diverse immigrants in Canada facing racism and discrimination. With the collaboration of skills, abilities, and perspectives, a diverse population can lead to improvements of productivity. Settlers were given long and narrow lots called the seigneurial system or the long-lot system, but it was difficult to defend the land from First Nations. French sent soldiers to
protect the colony ending in
many deaths of First Nations
such as the Quendat. The Effects of Early French Rule in Canada The Quebec Act of 1774
allowed French civil law to
remain in force, after the
British took over Quebec. The Quebec Act of 1774 allowed seigneurial system to continue. Today, the long-lot system remains visible in southern parts of Quebec. The Canadians of New France developed a society that was different from that of France, into what is known as Quebec today. A negative aspect of early French rule is the near disappearance of a once powerful First Nation, Quendat. The Effects of Immigration in Canada To create a more
economically stable country with
diverse cultures, Canada provides more opportunities for people in different countries. Immigration has provided Canada's
economic prosperity. Canada's
attention focused on people who can
bring their skills and abilities to the
country. One of the most preferred cities for immigrants is Toronto, a place of national diversity. Toronto gets all the benefit of immigration promotions.
Without immigrants, Canada would not be considered a diverse country with a growing economy.
