Building Inclusive Cities and Communities
Freiler, Christa
Education Canada, v48 n1 p40-42, 44 Win 2007-2008
Canada prides itself on being an inclusive country. Immigrants from all over the world arrive in Canada's cities with their families because they feel welcome and safe. According to research, engagement towards social inclusion increased among Canadians during the last 30 last years. These changing values resulted in the creation of official languages legislation and multiculturalism policies in the late 1960s and early 1970s. However, Canadians became less generous and accepting of others during the 1990s, when economic factors such as high unemployment, combined with eroding public services and spending cutbacks, threated people's well-being and economic security. In this article, the author examines how inclusive is Canada's cities and communities. This article also examines the role of Canadian schools in building inclusive cities and communities.
