Canada Day occurs on July 1st, the anniversary of Canada’s confederation.  Canadians commemorate the day with parades, fireworks, cookouts, and concerts.  The popularity of the holiday has been on the incline since the late 1960’s and has since become a nationwide celebration.

Formerly known as “Dominion Day,” Canada Day marks the anniversary of the Constitution Act of 1867, joining Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the Canada province (now Ontario and Quebec) into a single country.  The Constitution Act  granted Canada a substantial amount of independence from England, although complete independence was not given until 1982.  Prior to 1900, there was little Canadian nationalism as many Canadians regarded themselves as British citizens.  The first official celebration was held in 1917 to honor Canada’s 50th birthday.

These are two versions of our national anthem.
