Summary Translation: Canada took a pioneering decision in 1971: the adoption of multiculturalism as a state policy. Over 45 years later, cultural diversity is one of Canada's identity markers. "Our roots reach out to every corner of the globe. We are from far and wide and speak over 200 languages. Our national fabric is vibrant and varied, woven together by many cultures and heritages, and underlined by a core value of respect," said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Like other American countries, present day Canadian society is the result of a mix of Indigenous and colonial cultures, as well as those brought by immigrants during different historical time periods.
