Canada Day celebrates the creation of the dominion of Canada through the British North America Act on July 1, 1867, uniting three British territories — the Province of Canada (southern Ontario and southern Quebec), Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick — into a federation which we now cal Canada! It all started on June 20, 1868, when the Governor General, Lord Monck, signed a proclamation calling upon all Her Majesty’s loving subjects throughout Canada to join in the celebration of the anniversary of the formation of the union of the British North America provinces in a federation under the name of Canada on July 1st. Happy Canada Day!!
Canadian Flag The July 1 holiday was established by statute in 1879, under the name Dominion Day. Dominion Day went largely uncelebrated after that first anniversary.
In 1958 the government began to arrange an annual observation however it still was not a wide spread observance until the mid-70’s. On October 27, 1982, July 1st which was known as “Dominion Day” became “Canada Day”. Since then Canada Day Committees are established in each province and territory to plan, organize and coordinate the Canada Day celebrations locally. Grants are provided by the Department to those committees.
So Canada we at KarateTraining.org would like to wish you a Happy Canada Day!
