CANADA DAY

Canada Day commemorates the creation of the Dominion of Canada. On July 1, 1867, the British North America Act established “one Dominion under the name of Canada” out of the colonies of Upper Canada, Lower Canada, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, dividing it into four provinces named Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick. Canada Day was so named by Parliament in 1982; previous names were First of July, July the First, Confederation Day, and Dominion Day.
