Welcome to World Issues!

In this module you will investigate the concept and responsibilities of citizenship. You will compare what you have learned throughout this course about the ways various cultures have dealt with the rights and freedoms of their people. Through an examination of what has happened in Canada's past to non-white immigrants (specifically, Japanese Canadians during World War II), you will learn what can happen to people who have lost their citizenship. In your study of the rights and responsibilities of being a citizen of the world, you will investigate the impact of volunteerism in Canada and learn how your individual effort can make a difference in making the world a better place to live.
