Canada Day marks the Birthday of Canada, while not your day the country was ‘born’. This is actually the day the British The United States Act produced the Canadian Authorities in 1867 – the act also mentioned that Canada could be a completely independent Dominion of England out of this day let's start.
Canada Day (French: Fête du Canada) is the national day of Canada, a federal statutory holiday celebrating the anniversary of the July 1, 1867, enactment of the British North America Act, 1867 (today called the Constitution Act, 1867), which united three colonies into a single country called Canada within the British Empire.
How are you celebrating your canada day?
For Canada day, my family (some cousins) and I went to Canada Place in Vancouver and walked around grabbing as many mini canada flags and listening to the bands playing. CTV was broadcasting there, so it was fun to watch that :)
afterwards, we headed over to my house and had a huge BBQ with friends and family as we watched the fireworks from the back porch.
Overall, one crazy day xD
what day is canada day?
Yes, July 1st is Canada Day. However, in Newfoundland,
Canada's newest province, before they joined Canada in 1949, July 1st was Remembrance Day, the day to remember the 800+ Newfoundlanders who "went over the top" one morning during the Battle of Beaumont Hamel in WWI and only about 68 answered the roll call that night, as well as all other NLers who have died in war. There weren't many people in NL in the early 1900's so almost a whole generation of young males NLers died in WWI. In NL on July 1st there are still memorial services, though it is also celebrated as Canada Day.
