appreciate the impact of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms on rights and governance in Canada
Critically assess how Legislative processes attempt to address emerging issues of immigration by exploring and reflecting upon the following questions and issues:

|Dimensions of thinking
By looking back to the time of Ethnic settlement in Alberta and the discrimination those settlers encountered, students should develop an appreciation for the Charter of Rights and Freedoms that exists in Canada today. Students will examine Immigration policies and their relationship to the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and speculate how those policies and the Charter may have helped ease the struggle of Alberta’s Ethnic settlers.
