This paper theorizes the multiculturalization of national identity. Concentrating on the Canadian case, it examines newspaper discourses from the Globe and Mail and the Toronto Star during the 1990's. The analysis reveals that both Canada/USA comparisons and English Canada/Quebec comparisons play crucial roles for the construction of multicultural Canadian identity. The results from the empirical analysis are then used to nuance existing theories of multicultural nationalism.
