Ambitious projects of social construction can require fundamental changes in constitutional law and political institutions, as already shown. This chapter outlines some further changes that could be needed in the future to consolidate Canada’s identity as a model of progressive multicultural integration and to ensure the adoption of appropriate practical measures of minority accommodation. These changes include reforms in the conduct of elections, a more inclusive definition of citizenship, a more valid and reliable method for distinguishing different grades or classes of citizens, a new procedure for the appointment of Senators, and the modernization of the office of the Governor General.
