A Report of the Canadian Consultative Council on Multiculturalism 1977. Rapport du Conseil Consultatif Canadien du Multiculturalisme 1977.
Canadian Consultative Council on Multiculturalism, Ottawa (Ontario).; Ministry of State for Multiculturalism, Ottawa (Ontario).
In its capacity as an advisory body to the Canadian Minister of State for Multiculturalism, the Canadian Consultative Council on Multiculturalism prepared this report, written in English and French, in order to compare the government's policy of multiculturalism with its realization in practice. The work was conducted through five standing committees: Language and Cultural Development, Immigration Policy, Media, Human Rights and Humanitarian Concerns, and Grants. Part I summarizes findings and recommendations derived from a series of hearings and consultations held by the committees concerning the areas of language, education, immigration, communications, legal rights, and the government's role in fostering cultural pluralism. Part II presents evaluations of progress toward meeting recommendations made in a previous report. The following topics are addressed: retention of language and culture, human rights, cultural and multicultural community centers, the ethnic press and mass media, the arts, immigrants, attitudes of young people, and government administration.
