A brief introduction into Canada Day

Canada Day, formerly known as Dominion Day, marks the historical event in which Canada gained their independence from Great Britain in 1867. Canada wasn't really 'born' on July 1st, but the holiday celebrates the events that took place on this day.

What is Canada Day?

Canada Day celebrates the anniversary of the Constitution Act which was signed on July 1, 1867. This was the day that the three British colonies of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the Province of Canada united to form a single country.

When is it celebrated?

This important holiday celebrates the birth of Canada as an independent nation and is celebrated each year on July 1st. Canada Day is a statutory holiday in Canada. If it falls on a Sunday, it is moved to July 2, which is the case for Canada Day 2018.

What's happening?

In 1867, Confederation was celebrated with the ringing of the bells at St. James Cathedral. It was a day of parades, fireworks, and music — not much has changed! Many Canadians wear red and white in honor of Canada's national colors.
