Challenges & Changes in 1837
At the time some of the challenges new immigrants faced on arriving in Canada were finding adequate jobs, finding good quality housing, missing support from homeland, getting used to the weather, learning new language, adapting to new
culture or values, financial constraints, lack of social interac
-ions, access to professional help, discrimination and
racism, access to education/training, access to childca
-re, and access to vehicles/automobiles. The
responses of the new immigrants were
Where can we look to for these
resources ? Will I be
affected by racism ?
Discrimination and segregation affected the ways in which African Canadians met their everyday needs because segregation affected the actions of the African Canadians and where they would work, the occupation, & basically everywhere they would go
there would be discrimination and segregation
applicable to them. And also depending where
they lived & where they decided to go there was
discrimination and segregation because
whites & blacks were separated
from one another.
The Rebellions of 1837 were two armed uprisings
that took place in Lower and Upper Canada in 1837 and 1838. Both rebellions were motivated by frustrations with political reform. A key shared goal was responsible government, which was eventually achieved in the incidents' aftermath. The rebellions led directly to Lord Durham's Report on the Affair of British North America and to The British North America Act, 1840 which partially reformed the British provinces into a unitary system.
There are many people that came to Canada in 1837. Some of the people were William Donnova, Maria M'Hua, Cornelius Sullivan, James Caldwell, Ellen Harrington and Joseph Dean. It was not safe for them to come to Canada because discrimination and racism was going on which led to war and many other harmful things.
