Transcript of History of Immigration in Canada

Immigration Canada creation of immigration categories Immigration Act This ranges from 1867-present may 23rd 1914 Komagata Maru incident 2002-present Immigration and Refugee Protection Act 1914-1920 Interment of the Ukrainian Canadians 1885-present past to present This incident happened off the shore of Vancouver May 23rd 1914 the freighter Komagata Maru came Vancouver with 376 peoples from India these peoples were not allowed to come into Canada due to the racist immigration laws and the $200 entry fee. The immigration categories started off as a anyone can come in to the country then it evolved into restricting people on the basis of race it then proceeded to not allow anyone but those from the US or Britain it then changed to abandon all white supremacy with immigration latter it then shifted to include refuge status to those who need it it now is manly based on skills and work experience This was the time of world war one and the Ukrainian Canadians were considered enemy aliens do to the fact that the country of Ukraine was in cahoots with our enemy's. we then put the Ukrainian Canadians in to interment camps there we then sadly made them do forced labor. they were used to develop Banff National Park, the logging industry in Northern Ontario & Quebec, the steel mills in Ontario & Nova Scotia, and in the mines in British Columbia, Ontario & Nova Scotia. this helped the progression of Canada so much that the internment was carried on for two years after the end of World War I. This lead to stricter immigration rules in Canada to prevent those who could not better the country from coming in. http://www.infoukes.com/history/internment/

these are my references Refugees being added as an immigration category 1976-present This category was added to the immigration categories in the year 1976 and is still used even to this day it helps us to gain a better reputation from the people of the world because we help those who need our help we mainly take refugees recommended by the UN we also allow people to request the status of refugee if they fear persecution or going back to there home country. We as canadian citizens can also sponsor refugees too. in 2005 we had about 262,175 immigrants enter the country of that about 12% are refugees. That means that approximately 31458.84 refugees came into Canada. Interment of the Japanese Canadians 1941 Before Wold War 2 there were 21,000 Japanese citizens living in British Columbia 75% of them had citizenship everyday they faced racism and discrimination the government passed laws restricting what they can and cant do in hopes to get them to pack ship and leave. The Japanese Canadians were not interned until after Japan bombed Pearl Harbor the government thought that the Japanese canadians posed no threat but the public had a different view and were paranoid with the Japanese Canadians not detained. during there detainment there properties and possessions were sold in order to discourage them from rejoining canadian society. Interment of Italian Canadians 1940 The Italian Canadians were also interned during World War 2. about 1800 italians were given status as enemy alien and 600 were interned but did not do anything wrong they were not criminals some of them were kept for two years in the internment camps. Singh Decision 1976 Satnam Singh came to Canada from India wanting refugee status but the government rejected him because the immigration act of 1976 did not alow Mr. Singh to state his case in person or to appeal the governments decision. The Supreme court of Canada said that the immigration act goes against the Charter of Rights and Freedoms everyone has the right to life, security and liberty which means everyone physically present in Canada.
This lead to a few changes such as all people claiming refugee status have the right to quick and fair hearing in which they attend in person and the government must provide the people seeking the status of refugee with the necessities of life while they await a hearing Chinese Head Tax The Head tax was created in order to discourage the Chinese from coming to Canada. The price of the tax sky rocketed the government made millions off of it also with the head tax was the exclusion act in which no chineses were allowed into the country the chinese that were already here were denied citizenship. Life was really hash they were given the insane jobs that no one would do such as blasting dynamite through rock to build the railroad and hard manual labor all the while they were being discriminated against. 1885-1923 the Immigration act of Canada was a trial and error process that entices all of these and only takes the attributes that do not include discrimination, hold fair and equitable equally all of these previous immigration policy's have shaped Canada into a compassionate and accepting country this is the system we use in Canada today it balances equality and fairness by using a point system this system will determine if you are fit for canadian life styles it judges you based on your education degree, how well you know French and or English, your age, work experience if you have arranged employment here in Canada and how well you will adapt to the diverse canadian culture. There are a fw ways people are denied access to Canada not enough finances you pose a security threat you were or are involved in crime and health related reasons such as you are carrying a virus that could affect the population. This system also allow refugees to enter the county ( look under Refugees being added as an immigration category for more details). HOPE YOU ENJOYED
