History Timeline The History of Immigration in Canada 1. The First Immigrants 1840 - 1870 Britain had been extended their influence in the world. Britain included the political measure of colonization of other countries. Canada was the one of countries became British possession when New France fell to Britain. Actually the English-speaking Canadians and French-speaking Canadians opposed each other in the country; however Britain won the war against France for the territorial dispute. 1870 - 1900 Canada welcomes immigrants and became more multicultural than ever before. The population of immigrants has been increased until now. The immigrants brought to Canada the new cultures, races, religions, languages and these cultivate new Canadian identity which is Multiculturalism. The country welcomes all people if they had different race, religion, or home country. 1990 - Now a.After few years, the directional movement of immigrants showed change. Before the World War, almost immigrants were settled to the land or to work in industry by the Canadian government, however the governments desired immigrants with training and specific skills. Also the Immigration Act was changed. The change included the allowance of immigrating with families or relatives and it helped refugees. 1960 - 1990 During World War II, also the problem of race of immigrants happened like during World War I. in this time, the target of deportation or relocation changed. Most of countries that were member of Allies had same relation with Canada; however a part of countries such as Japan and Italy became enemy in the World War II. This change affected to the Japanese and Italian immigrants in Canada. They were also experienced deportation and relocation. Actually the Japanese-Canadians were Nisei who were children of first immigrants. 1930 - 1960 2. Situation in the World Wars 1900 - 1930 1850 1900 In the 18 century, French and English people came to Canada from their countries. They were the first immigrants and they teach their culture to Canadian people such as languages. There were English and French speakers in different places that are Ontario and Quebec and they were opposed to each other. Actually English-speaking residents were stronger than French-speaking residents because the population of speaker wan larger. They were concerned about education because their cultures of religion were different. Not only those things, they had more conflicts. This relation made the federal system of government. The treatment of immigrants from England and France was not good for them. They needed to across the sea spending long time. After they arrived to Canada, they herded onto CPR for their week-long journey to the West of Canada. The circumstance was unprepared for the distance that they had to the travel. Also, they were allocated a homestead. The immigrants were not accepted by Canadian people. They thought that they were ethnocentric. Thus they were superior to the immigrants in their mind. The discrimination was shown in their life. For example, some factories placed signs of “No English wanted” and showed that those factories didn’t want to employ the immigrants of English people. That discrimination gave immigrants bad impression. After colonization, French- and English-Canadian were surfacing once again about the school language rights. The educational concepts of Language were different in each community. For example, schools in Ontario recommended using English; however schools in Quebec recommended using French. As a result, the Ontario government decided a right of language instruction rules for the resolution of the issue. The right was not satisfactory for French-Speaking Canadians. In and after World War I, immigrants in Canada experienced an intimidating situation. In the war, many countries joined the war and fought for riding to victory. Immigrants had different races and home countries. Especially immigrants from Russia and Eastern Europe were often accused of being socialist revolutionaries, and the government was constantly petitioned to deport them. Moreover, the Canadian government putted restriction on the immigration of people from Britain and the United States. Southern Eastern Europe could if they had permanent employment. In such situation, Canadians who were farmers, the railways, and some other businesses welcomed immigrants because they wanted to employ more workers in low wages because Canadians didn’t want to work. This movement affected Canada’s economy because great number of immigrants immigrated for working. After World War II, millions of refugees were confused in Europe. They lost land for living in by the attacking of enemies. They were called displaced persons and they needed to go to the other countries for starting new life. In the situation, Canada agreed to accept about 165 000 displaced persons to immigrate to Canada. 1950 The population of immigrants increase in the 50 years. You can see the big changes in the population of British and French. The amount of population generally increased and it signifies the increasing impact of immigration in Canada. Ryotaro Matsumoto

Jan 8th 2013 Argument Now, about 34,000,000 of people live in Canada. The population include diversity of races such as European, African, and Asian. The first time of entering immigrants was about 200 years ago. People who came from France and England brought new cultures. From the event, Canada started changing, and many immigrants from different nations immigrated in Canada. The immigrants effectuated the social changes because the multiculturalism is consolidated over a long time. Conclusion In the first time of immigration, there were almost people who were from Europe or United States. However, after 30 years, other Asian people came to Canada and the population increased. Canada has a lot of history of immigration during the 150 years. The relations between Canadian and immigrants were changed in each period of time but it finally made amicable relations and also the Canadian Identity of Multiculturalism was created. The experience of welcome the immigrants and touch to the different culture were important for the development of the country. 2000 Sited http://www.rcinet.ca/patrimoineasiatique/en/le-mois-du-patrimoine-asiatique-au-canada/les-refugies-de-la-mer-la-communaute-vietnamienne/
