Introduction

This section will look at the intersection between law and Canadian identity by examining Canada’s history and treatment of minority and immigrant groups, and of Japanese-Canadians in particular. It will aim to highlight the uses and abuses of law in regards to the internment and deportation of Japanese-Canadians, possible reasons behind such abuse, and what Canada has done to address these abuses. Ultimately, this section will serve as a platform for discussion on how law can shape, affect, and reflect Canadian identity.
