Canada (Dominion) Day
Date When Celebrated : July 1 st (except when it falls on a Sunday it is then celebrated the next day)
Happy Birthday Canada!!
Today is the birthday of Canada, our northern neighbor. On this day in 1867, the confederation of Upper and Lower Canada and some Maritime Provinces joined the Dominion of Canada.
Canada Day is a celebration of Canadian nationalism, heritage and pride. Canada became self-governing on July 1st, 1867, with the passage of the British North America Act (BNA Act) in the British Parliament. The holiday was originally known as "Dominion Day". It was changed to Canada Day by the Canadian Parliament on October 27, 1982.
Did you know? The U.S. and Canada share the largest un-defended border in the world.
