This unit focusses on the challenges that faced Canada as the nation embarked on its quest for a just society. The activities help students understand the response of the Federal government and the Canadian people to the separatist movement in Quebec. They analyse the changing social and demographic patterns in Canada with specific reference to its Aboriginal communities and major immigrant groups. They summarize Canada’s efforts to protect the human rights of all Canadians. Students use the Catholic faith tradition to analyse American popular culture’s impact on Canadians. This unit’s culminating activity requires students to research and evaluate information on prime ministers Pearson and Trudeau from a variety of sources and communicate their findings in formal written reports and oral presentations. Throughout this unit, students witness Catholic social teachings and promote equality, democracy, and solidarity for a just, peaceful, and compassionate society.
