Activity: Canadian Identity Your group (2-3 people) has been selected as junior ambassadors for Canada. You will be leaving on a two week trip to a foreign country, where very little English is spoken. Your job is to teach people a little about Canada and our unique culture. Since this is a brief trip, you have limited space to bring items for your demonstration With your group, using poster paper, visually represent 5 items you would take along to help explain about Canadian culture Be prepared to present to class in 15 minutes, and explain WHY you selected these items

Think aboutwhat kind of impressions of Canada do you want to leave? Are there stereotypes you wish to dispel? Debrief What items did groups have similar? Different?

Macdonald, Canadas 1st prime minister, dreamed of an iron road that would link the country of Canada from coast to coast, the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean. Railway & Canadian National Identity #Social 20-2 The builders of the CPR faced many challenges; mosquitoinfested swamps, Western plains, mountain ranges. Completed in 4 years and 6 months by French, English,

Scottish, Irish, Italian, Slavic, Swedish, American, Chinese and Canadian workers. When they completed this great project, they felt as though they had proved something- Canadians could overcome huge obstacles! This view helped to make the CPR a national symbol! Challenges to Canadian Myths #Social 20-2 Early 1900s, people of British heritage made up the dominant cultural groups in Canada. British culture, traditions, and language was dominant. Francophone Canadians (French) and Aboriginal peoples began to tell their stories and histories. As they affirmed their identities they challenged the idea that Canada was British. They also challenged some of the creation of Canada myths.
