Nation report

  1. 1. Nation Report: Canada<br />Jeffrey Phongsamran<br />
  2. 2. Geography<br />Canada’s territory combined makes it the worlds second largest country by land mass.<br />The Provinces are Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ne Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Quebec, and Saskatchewa.<br />The territories are Northwest Territories, Nunavut, and Yukon.<br />
  3. 3. Geography cont.<br />Canada Spans the territory between the Pacific and Atlantic ocean.<br />It occupies about 41% of North America.<br />To the North lies a vast rock base known as the Canadian Shield<br />To the south lies the Appalachian Mountains and the Great Lakes.<br />
  4. 4. People<br />Most of the people in Canada are ethnically British or French. <br />The largest occupied urban areas are in Quebec, Ontario, and central Canada.<br />French and English are the official languages but English is more widely spoken.<br />
  5. 5. People cont.<br />Canada is dominated by English Canada in terms of national identity.<br />Canada has seen successive waves of immigration from Netherlands, Germany, Italy, England, Ireland, China, and Japan due to its legislated binationalism and biculturalism.<br />Class symbolism in Canada is modest, mainly due to the rhetoric of identity that prices diversity and even humility.<br />
  6. 6. Culture<br />Canada is often symbolically connected with three key images: hockey, the beaver, and the maple leaf.<br />Hockey carries the same symbolic weight that baseball does in America.<br />The beavers special merit as a cultural symbol is its industriousness, triumph over the seasons, and the beaver is seen as humble, non-predatory, and diligent, values that form the fundamental core of Canadian self-identification.<br />
  7. 7. Culture cont.<br />The Maple Leaf has served as a symbol celebrating the nature and environment of what is Canada since the 18th century.<br />The core values of the symbols are cooperation, industriousness, and patience (a kind of national politeness).<br />The Canadian Identity is something communal rather than individualistic.<br />
  8. 8. History<br />The name Canada is from the Iroquoian word kanata, which means village.<br />Canada was formed as a federal dominion of four provinces.<br />France held the North American fur trade monopoly in 1604.<br />The first permanent settlement and capital of New France was Quebec City. <br />
  9. 9. History cont.<br />The two European colonial powers that shaped Canada were France and Great Britain.<br />After the seven year war the French ceded a majority of their land the British, however the British guaranteed the right of the Canadians practice of the Catholic faith and use of French civil law.<br />In 1960, the Quiet Revolution took place in Quebec, overthrowing the old establishment and modernized the economy and society.<br />
