Multiculturalism In Canada :: Immigration, Ethnic Diversity

Canadian Multiculturalism, Same as it ever Was? (an taste by Kathleen Hoyos) Abstract After the Second World War ended, Canada was no longer mainly composed of its two dominant ethnocultural groups, French and English, simply rather constituted by polyethnicity meaning, Canadian culture was made up of many different ethnic groups. Since then, Canada has actively embraced multiculturalism and on 12 July 1988, the polarity of Commons passed Bill C-93, An Act for the preservation and enhancement of multiculturalism in Canada. The Canadian multicultural experience has been ofttimes portrayed as a jubilancy of ethnicity where different cultural groups sh are their customs and learn from each other. However, it is lately being rumoured that the multiculturalism hype is not all it is cut out to be and segregates communities rather than integrate. According to Canadian authors Keit h Banting and Will Kymlicka, in much of the world and particularly in Europe, there is a widespread cognizance that multiculturalism has failed (44). In this paper, I examine some recent common issues of concern, especially, racialism and discrimination, through the literary expression of Canadian playwrights and writers such as George F. Walker, Cecil Foster, and Mordecai Richler. These writers are not meant to represent any ethnic group as a whole, but rather try to project a general depression about the nation in individual ways. I will in the long run explore the idea of how perhaps multiculturalism in Canada is evolving into another state since migratory patterns and the social circumstances that Canada is facing in the 21st century clear changed. Today, the idea of celebrating different ethnicities and customs is no longer as outstanding as celebrating the transcultural or multinational aspects of relations between individuals and groups of immigrants.
