The paper relates that in 2007 alone there were 429,649 legal immigrants to Canada, representing the largest immigration in the history of the country ("Canada", 2008, sec. 1). The paper explains that one of the primary reasons for the increase in immigration to Canada is the need for those with special work skills that industry is calling for at the present time ("Canada", 2008, sec. 1). Yet, the paper discusses how this mass immigration causes concerns for immigrants because of the issues that immigrant groups face as they exist within the dominant culture and begin to function within society. The paper explains that this is because of the differences in cultural norms that may cause conflict for cultural groups or individuals making immigration a difficult task. For this reason, the paper concentrates on the concern of acculturation for immigrants to Canada and the issues that acculturation poses for these groups. It is contended that acculturation is different for each group, depending on the ties that the individual has with the culture and the interactions that the person has throughout society.
