Happy Canada Day!



It was on this date in 1867 that Canada was officially born when the Constitution Act joined three provinces into one country: Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the Canada province, which then split into Ontario and Quebec. It took a long time for the holiday to be recognized nationwide, first as Dominion Day and now as Canada Day. Many Canada Day events are planned in Vancouver, Ottawa, Calgary, Toronto, Montreal, Victoria, and communities all over the country. Even Queen Elizabeth showed up for the party! For more information, see the official Canada Day website. Link -Thanks, Lauren!

Close. Maybe hairsplitting, but there was no "Canada province." There was Upper Canada (modern day Ontario) and Lower Canada (modern day Quebec).

Thanks for the acknowledgement, though. Happy belated 4th to my American cousins!
