New citizenship study guide highlights Indigenous Peoples, Canadian responsibilities

The current “Discover Canada” guide dates back to 2011 when the previous Conservative government did its own overhaul designed to provide more information on Canadian values and history.

Some of the Conservatives’ insertions attracted controversy, including increased detail about the War of 1812 and a warning that certain “barbaric cultural practices,” such as honour killings and female genital mutilation, are crimes in Canada.

No reason to be knowledgeable about your new homeland’s history or laws – the history is changing and the laws don’t apply to immigrants anyway.
