Canadian identity refers to the unique culture, characteristics and condition of being Canadian, as well as the many symbols and expressions that set Canada and Canadians apart from other peoples and cultures of the world. Primary influences on the Canadian identity trace back to the arrival, beginning in the early seventeenth century, of French settlers in Acadia and the St. Lawrence River Valley and English, Scottish and other settlers in Newfoundland , the British conquest of New France in , and the ensuing dominance of French and British culture in the gradual development of both an imperial and a national identity. Carrying through the 20th century and to the present day, Canadian aboriginal art and culture continues to exert a marked influence on Canadian identity. The question of Canadian identity was traditionally dominated by two fundamental themes: first, the often conflicted relations between English Canadians and French Canadians stemming from the French Canadian imperative for cultural and linguistic survival; secondly, the generally close ties between English Canadians and the British Empire , resulting in a gradual political process towards complete independence from the "mother country". With the gradual loosening of political and cultural ties to Britain in the twentieth century, immigrants from Europe, Asia, Africa and the Caribbean have reshaped the Canadian identity, a process that continues today with the continuing arrival of large numbers of immigrants from non-British or French backgrounds, adding the theme of multiculturalism to the debate.

Political culture , in political science , a set of shared views and normative judgments held by a population regarding its political system. The notion of political culture does not refer to attitudes toward specific actors, such as a president or prime minister , but rather denotes how people view the political system as a whole and their belief in its legitimacy. American political scientist Lucian Pye defined political culture as the composite of basic values, feelings, and knowledge that underlie the political process. Hence, the building blocks of political culture are the beliefs, opinions, and emotions of the citizens toward their form of government. Political culture has been studied most intensively in the context of established Western democracies.
Growing up in Toronto, Phillip Buckner was a British-Canadian cultural hybrid but with a strong sense of Canadian nationalism that led to his interest in Canadian history. In high school and at the University of Toronto he absorbed a vision of Canadian history that was Ontario-centric and emphasized Canada's British roots but his experience as a graduate student in Britain and as a lecturer at the University of New Brunswick challenged his youthful assumptions. As the founding editor of Acadiensis he sought to promote a more inclusive vision of Canadian history and when he returned to the study of Canada's connection with the British Empire he sought to promote a more balanced understanding of Canada's place within a wider British World.
