Social Studies 9                                                              (June 1 – 7)

This week we are going to look at migration and factors that influenced people to come to Canada.  First of all, there are two important terms for you to identify, “Migration and Immigration.” 

1) Develop a definition in your own words on these two terms. 

2) Research a theory to explain the First Nations people’s early arrival in North America.

3) Geographers divide the reasons for Migration into two Categories:  Push factors and Pull factors.  Explain each of these terms and provide 3 examples of Push factors and 3 examples of Pull factors.

4) Over time the number and origin of immigrants entering Canada has changed.  The government controls the immigration policy which is influenced by economic conditions; and the social and political attitudes of the time period.  Today the policy reflects the belief of multiculturalism (official policy that respects the different cultural groups of Canada.)  In an essay, explain how Immigration affects Canadian Identity.   Be sure to use examples to support your answer
