In a multicultural and multilingual context, immigration has been an integral part of the national identity of Canada.
Modern Canada constitutes of a large percentage of Diasporic population who contribute extensively to the making of Modern Canada. In the wake of globalization, the evolution of Canada as a Multicultural State has been receiving much attention from mass media. This again has been a contested terrain since the settlement of a chosen race in a promised land has resulted into the subjugation of the Peoples who have been residing in the geo-political entity which came later to be known as Canada.
The conference would like to involve in a dialogue between local and global and highlight the concerns within the concept of Multiculturalism in Canada. "
