Mainstreaming Multiculturalism in Canada: Challenges and Opportunities = Inscrire le multiculturalisme dans le courant canadien: Les defis et les promesses. Report of the Nottawasaga Thinkers' Conference (October 1983).
McCreath, Peter L.
This is the report of a 1983 conference convened by an ad hoc group of Canadian educators who wished to reexamine the Federal Policy on Multiculturalism (promulgated in 1971) in light of present and future educational needs. The report is in both French and English. Chapter I describes multiculturalism as a part of mainstream Canada, rather than as a representation of two separate aspects of Canadian life. Chapter II addresses the challenge of educating Canadians in schools, colleges, and universities; and Chapter III considers the task of educating Canadians outside of the classroom. Chapter IV is a discussion of steps required to combat covert prejudice and discrimination in the courts and legal system. Finally, Chapter V calls for a greater commitment to multiculturalism throughout the Canadian government and society. (CJM)
