Canada day is celebrated as the ‘Birthday of Canada.’ Using the word ‘Birthday’ can be an oversimplification of Canada day as it was the day when the country got it’s full independence.
History of Canada Day
The Constitution Act joined three territories into one nation: Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the Canada area, which at that point split into Ontario and Quebec. Be that as it may, Canada was not autonomous of England until 1982. The occasion called Dominion Day was formally settled in 1879.
However, it wasn’t seen by numerous Canadians who believed themselves to be British residents. Dominion Day began to get on when the 50th commemoration of the confederation moved around in 1917. In 1946, a bill was advanced to rename Dominion Day, yet contentions in the House of Commons over what to call the occasion slowed down the law.
