Explain-English

Contrary to some public and media discourse that multiculturalism is divisive and perpetuates enclavism and separate identities, this article describes a variety of multicultural common spaces wherein Canadians of all backgrounds interact and together contribute to an evolving, shared identity. There is a correlation between advancing Canadian multiculturalism and strengthening common spaces, on the one hand, and enhancing Canadian identity, on the other. The data presented below show that such spaces are expanding. Bridging social distance within the diverse population of Canada shifts the social dynamic from conflict and misunderstanding towards developing and strengthening a sense of shared citizenship and collective experiences. Canadians accept cultural pluralism and multiculturalism which, as a policy, is a strong component of Canadian history, and the changing Canadian demographics confirm its growing relevance to Canada's future.
