The Multiculturalism Question : Debating Identity in 21st Century Canada Paperback / softback

Part of the Queen's Policy Studies Series series

Description

Canada's policy of multiculturalism has been the object of ongoing debate since it was first introduced in 1971.

Decades later, Canadians still seem uncertain about the meaning of multiculturalism. Detractors insist that government has not succeeded in discouraging immigrants and their descendants from preserving their cultures of origin, undercutting a necessary identification with Canada, while supporters argue that immigrant groups' abilities to influence their adjustments to Canada has strengthened their sense of belonging.

Beyond what often seems to be a polarized debate is a broad spectrum of opinion around multiculturalism in Canada and what it means to be Canadian.

The Multiculturalism Question analyzes the policy, ideology, and message of multiculturalism.

Several of Canada's leading thinkers provide valuable insights into a crucial debate that will inevitably continue well into the future.
