From this demography it is seen that whites are still the majority in this country.

The country adopted multiculturalism in 1971 as one of the main principles of the country. Its intention is that immigrants from different countries will come here to create a mosaic of many and varied nationalities.

The country encourages and inspires the distinct cultures of different nations so that all nations feel comfortable accepting Canada as their own country. Canada prefers English and French as the official languages, but also recognizes the language practices of other nations. Therefore, different races get the opportunity to practice their own culture freely here. This country also accepts the religious practices of all nations. For this reason, religious places of worship of almost all nations can be found in the country. However, the country calls upon the immigrants to assimilate into the mainstream of the country. Various initiatives are also taken by the government so that an immigrant can mix with the mainstream of this country. This includes language learning. This is why the country provides ESL classes for immigrants. The purpose of these ESL classes is for immigrants to overcome their language barrier and acquire English, the main language of this country. How can an immigrant blend into the mainstream if he cannot overcome the language barrier?

The country provides all kinds of support to an immigrant to assimilate into the mainstream of this country. That being said, an immigrant must have the will to use these supports. If an immigrant wants to stay quietly in his country without taking these supports, no matter how many initiatives are taken by the government, it will not be useful. An immigrant must have a willingness to utilize support systems. One should be willing to come out of his own way and mix with the mainstream, talk.

Immigrants fail to assimilate in many cases. As a result they can no longer mix with the mainstream. They stay in their own way. Roaming in his own circle.

But it is true, every nation prefers to stay within its own community. Therefore, Bangladeshi-Canadians have their own community, Pakistanis have their own community, Indians have their own community, Sri Lankans have their own, Filipinos have their own. Similarly, each caste has developed its own community here. Each nationality has its own diaspora. Every diaspora feels more pull towards their own people. As a result, Sri Lankans pull Sri Lankans, Indians help Indians, Pakistanis help Pakistanis, Filipinos help Filipinos. Other ethnic groups also feel a sense of fellow feeling towards their community. Bangladeshis are also seen trying to promote their own community?

The question may arise, where is the unity among these different diasporas? Do Pakistanis come forward to promote Bangladeshis? Or do Bangladeshis try to promote Pakistanis? Or are Indians interested in promoting other nations than themselves? Or how much do the shetangs mix with other community people other than the workplace?

So if the question of national unity arises in this country one day, how will it be possible?

Is it possible to form a single strong nation in this way? Or will it give birth to a weak nation?

As far as I understand, not much can be expected from the first generation of immigrants from different countries. But in the second or third generation these limitations will not exist. They will move forward with all nations. They will not have as much passion for their community or their diaspora as the first generation. Because, the second and third generation of every nation can mix with the mainstream of this country. Then they will hold the Canadian mainstream. Like the first generation, tiny communes will not have fillings.

The country’s immigration policy may have been designed with that goal in mind. Their target is not us first generation, our next generation is their target. A generation takes 19 to 20 years to mature. As such, how many generations have passed since Canada became an independent country?

But the key to immigration policy remains in the hands of the government. The gradual changes they make in immigration policy are mainly with these targets in mind.

They know what to do when. If they see that immigrants from any race are a threat to the country, then they will tighten that way. But the reins are in their hands.

But the main purpose of immigration policy is bound to fail if any government wants to use this policy as their political tool.
