Question 4
Terms such as ethnic or ethnocultural refer to the origins of immigrants who have come to Canada.

False. Ethnic and ethnocultural are terms that refer to the origins of all Canadians, regardless of whether they were born in Canada or elsewhere. Immigrant is a more specific term applied only to those who are not Canadian citizens by birth but who moved here to become permanent residents of this country.
