Question 3
The Dutch are the tenth largest ethnic group in Canada and have worked hard to sustain their ethnic identity and cultural traditions.

False. The Dutch are the tenth largest ethnic group in Canada, but despite their numbers, they have maintained a relatively low profile. The Dutch invisibility, however, was more a matter of choice than chance. Accommodation, integration and assimilation have been the desire of most Dutch immigrants and their children, as the quickest way to social stability and economic security.
