Best Answer

The location of our cities and today's populations, particularly those in Eastern Canada, are in in the southern part because the parts lower have been taken by the USA. Otherwise they would be in the middle part of Canada.

Canada's border has been determined by the limits placed on American expansionism. They took as much land as they could by any means available right up to our large and defended cities.

That and ease of living. The living is easy in the south, harder in the north.

How have immigrants influenced Canadian culture?

There is no such thing as a "Canadian" culture anymore than there is a single Global Culture. Canada is a Confederation of many Nations, each with many peoples and cultures. Some of those cultures date back thousands of years, some hundreds and most just a few decades. Most Canadians have very shallow family roots in Canada with 38% not being born in Canada or having at least one parent not born in Canada. With that in mind "Immigrants" are Canadian culture, just as they are Global Culture. BTW in Canada "Immigrants" are considered First Generation and their children Second Generation. This is different than most countries because once a person becomes Canadian they get all the rights and benefits, sometimes even more, than those whose families have been in Canada for hundreds of years. Also those whose families have been here for hundreds of years do not force their culture on others, not even their children. Multi-Generational Canadians have a very live and let live culture and think it is wrong to force others to change their culture. Of course this is not the case for all Multi-Generational Canadian cultures as there are some who have made laws that force their language and culture on new comers. Aside from that minority most Canadians respect other cultures and do not force their culture, or even share their culture as much as others. It is the main quality of Canadians that people like. People who come to Canada have, generally speaking, kept their culture.

What minority rights were guaranteed in the BNA act of 1867?

Minorities were expected to live by the will of national or provincial minorities. There would be an attempt to assimilate aboriginal people into the dominant Canadian culture
