Thus, in any cross-cultural exchange, one party will act as the higher contexted and one the lower contexted. Lawrence Iroquoian word meaning "village" or "settlement". [16] The name of Canada's capital city Ottawa comes from the Algonquin language term "adawe" meaning "to trade". [16] The French originally settled New France along the shores of the Atlantic Ocean and Saint Lawrence River during the early part of the 17th century. [17] Themes and symbols of pioneers, trappers, and traders played an important part in the early development of French Canadian culture. [18] The British conquest of New France during the mid-18th century brought 70,000 Francophones under British rule, creating a need for compromise and accommodation. [19] The migration of 40,000 to 50,000 United Empire Loyalists from the Thirteen Colonies during the American Revolution (1775–1783) brought American colonial influences. [19] Following the War of 1812 a large wave of Irish, Scottish and English settlers arrived in Upper Canada and Lower Canada. [19] The Canadian Forces and overall civilian participation in the First World War and Second World War helped to foster Canadian nationalism, [20] however in 1917 and 1944 conscription crisis's highlighted the considerable rift along ethnic lines between Anglophones and Francophones. [21] As a result of the First and Second World Wars, the Government of Canada became more assertive and less deferential to British authority. [22] Canada until the 1940s saw itself in terms of English and French cultural, linguistic and political identities, and to some extent aboriginal. [23] Legislative restrictions on immigration (such as the Continuous journey regulation and Chinese Immigration Act ) that had favoured British, American and other European immigrants (such as Dutch, German, Italian, Polish, Swedish and Ukrainian ) were amended during the 1960s, [24] [25] resulting in an influx of diverse people from Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean. [26] By the end of the 20th century, immigrants were increasingly Chinese, Indian, Vietnamese, Jamaican, Filipino, Lebanese and Haitian. [27] As of 2006, Canada has grown to have thirty four ethnic groups with at least one hundred thousand members each, of which eleven have over 1,000,000 people and numerous others are represented in smaller numbers. [28] 16.2% of the population self identify as a visible minority. [28] The Canadian public as-well as the major political parties support immigration. [29] Canada has also evolved to be religiously and linguistically diverse, encompassing a wide range of dialects, beliefs and customs. [30] [31] The 2011 Canadian census reported a population count of 33,121,175 individuals of whom 67.3% identify as being Christians; of these, Catholics make up the largest group, accounting for 38.7 percent of the population. [32] The largest Protestant denomination is the United Church of Canada (accounting for 6.1% of Canadians), followed by Anglicans (5.0%), and Baptists (1.9%). [32] About 23.9% of Canadians declare no religious affiliation, including agnostics, atheists, humanists, and other groups. [32] The remaining are affiliated with non-Christian religions, the largest of which is Islam (3.2%), followed by Hinduism (1.5%), Sikhism (1.4%) Buddhism (1.1%) and Judaism (1.0%). [32] English and French are the first languages of approximately 60% and 20% of the population; however in 2011, nearly 6.8 million Canadians listed a non-official language as their mother tongue. [33] Some of the most common non-official first languages include Chinese (mainly Cantonese with 1,072,555 first-language speakers); Punjabi (430,705); Spanish (410,670); German (409,200); and Italian (407,490). [34] French Canada 's early development was relatively cohesive during the 17th and 18th centuries, and this was preserved by the Quebec Act of 1774, which allowed Roman Catholics to hold offices and practice their faith. [35] In 1867, the Constitution Act was thought to meet the growing calls for Canadian autonomy while avoiding the overly strong decentralization that contributed to the Civil War in the United States. [36] The compromises reached during this time between the English- and French-speaking Fathers of Confederation set Canada on a path to bilingualism which in turn contributed to an acceptance of diversity. [37] The English and French languages have had limited constitutional protection since 1867 and full official status since 1969. [38] Section 133 of the Constitution Act of 1867 (BNA Act) guarantees that both languages may be used in the Parliament of Canada. [38] Canada adopted its first Official Languages Act in 1969, giving English and French equal status in the government of Canada. [39] Doing so makes them "official" languages, having preferred status in law over all other languages used in Canada. [39] Monument to Multiculturalism, by Francesco Pirelli in Toronto.
