On July 1st, every year since 1867, it is Canada Day here in Canada. 1867 was when Canada officially declared independence from Great Britain. The capital of Canada is Ottawa, Ontario. It is a nationwide holiday in Canada.
Special Events in Ottawa On Canada Day include, but are not limited to, Canada Day Noon Shows and Canada Day Evening Shows.
It is celebrated in many Canadian cities and towns with parades, fireworks, concerts, and parties. US, UK, and Philippine citizens now celebrate the holiday as well.
The day is a time to recognize Canada’s history as a fledgeling country that had its independence from Great Britain established on July 1st, 1867, by an Act of Parliament called The British North America Act 1867. In addition, it became a country without colonies or dependencies, like Australia and India, so it wanted to be recognized for what it had accomplished in the past 150 years, which, surprisingly, is not insignificant compared to France or Russia, with much longer histories.
Brief Information About Canada
In North America’s upper region, Canada is a federation with ten provinces and three territories. In addition, even more, regions are not officially part of any provinces or territory but are still considered a part of Canada.
The official languages of Canada are English and French. This is the main reason they could not merge with the United States, which does not have an official language because most of its citizens speak English (which is expressed in parts of Canada, too), making communication difficult when using other languages.
Many other nationalities speak their languages, such as Spanish and Portuguese, especially in Toronto and Vancouver, where there is a significant immigrant population. However, Canada was first inhabited by the first native people known as the Aboriginals.
