To make sure their traditions and culture goes on in their family, they often settle close to family and friends, who are more likely of similar ethnic background. (#2) As a result, the immigrants/refugees of Canada cluster together in their own groups, and create different parts/areas of cities in which different cultures are seen. This multiculturalism makes the cities more interesting and attracting to tourists. For example, in Toronto multiculturalism is shown in the different parts of the city, such as Chinatown, Greek town, or Little Italy. Apart from the culture, Canadas economy is also enriched with all its refugees. In 2010, Minister Jason Kenney said Canadas post-recession economy demands a high level of economic immigration to keep our economy strong, The refugees invest money in its economy by buying products such as furniture, groceries, and electronics.
As well as, when people move to Canada and become citizens, they have to start paying taxes, which also helps Canadas economy. Newcomers are also used to fill working positions as it was said in the CTV news article (Employers urged to use immigrants to fill jobs); employment analysts are looking to immigrants to fill the gap.(#3). More people means more people to fill the working positions that are needed to provide services for Canadas citizens and makes sure that no working position shortages occur. Refugees also promote tolerance towards other people which is the one of the main ingredients of creating peace. There are lots of programs and organizations that help people create tolerance towards other peoples cultures and backgrounds.
One of these organizations is Diversity Memphis which says tolerance and respect for all with the hope that greater understanding and acceptance of one another will make each of us stronger and lead our city to be a better place for everyone. (#4) Multiculturalism in the education system, also helps students; teaching and learning[¦] in multicultural classes, [..] is based upon consensus building, respect, and fostering cultural pluralism within racial societies. (#5) In conclusion, Canada has been and still is one of the most multicultural places compared to other countries, because of its welcoming acceptance of refugees and immigrants from all over the world. Apart from the fact that it shows how heartwarming and friendly the people in Canada are, the immigrants and refugees also improve Canadas economy and culture. As for the reason that they create diversity, invest in the economy, and promote tolerance between different people.
