In order to understand some of the social problems that people face in Canada it is necessary to identify the causes of those systemic issues such as lack of education, family relationship issues and newcomer's assimilation into Canadian culture. .
To begin with, lack of education could lead to systemic social issues. First, for financial reason people leave school. People in poverty need to earn money to support their families. They do not have time to go to school. For example, a child of 16 years works with minimum wages, instead of going school, to support family. Second, many children leave school because of bullying. The bullied child does not like the school because of emotional or physical torture. For example, a bullied child may think that school is only for stronger children. Third, people with special needs may not go to school because of limited accessibility. Not all the special needs people have same condition.
