When is Canada Day?


  • Today! Canada Day takes place every July 1.

Meaning of Canada Day - What is Canada Day all about?


  • Canada Day is the date when the nation of Canada was born.
  • Back in 1867 three provinces – Scotia, New Brunswick and Canada province – were officially turned into one huge country under the Constitution Act.
  • Of course ‘Canada province’ didn’t survive and was instead split into Ontario and Quebec with the whole country being called Canada.
  • Despite Canada coming into existence as a country under the Constitution Act, it didn’t actually gain its full independence from the British Empire until 1982. Yes, 1982.
  • That happened when the Constitution was repatriated, although the Queen remains the monarch and Head of State in Canada.
I’m not an American! I am a Canadian. I come from a “nice,” thoroughly unrealistic country.– Matthew Fisher

Now you must be confusing about What is Dominion Day! If yes! Then, We've provided you the perfect answer solutions to know the Difference between Canada Day and Dominion Day in the below post-


  • Dominion Day was a public holiday that was established on July 1 in 1879 and is meant to be a celebration of being Canadian.
  • However, it didn’t catch on properly until until around 1917 (the 50th anniversary of the Constitution Act) because many people in Canada still identified as British citizens.
  • The Canadian parliament attempted to rename Dominion Day but it didn’t really work out as nobody could agree what it should be called instead.
  • Over time – especially around the 100th anniversary of the constitution in 1967 – the day started to be referred to as ‘Canada Day’. This was made official in 1982 so Canada now kinda has both.

And stand on guard, O Canada,
We stand on guard for thee.

Refrain
O Canada, glorious and free!
We stand on guard, we stand on guard for thee.

O Canada! Where pines and maples grow.
Great prairies spread and lordly rivers flow.
How dear to us thy broad domain,
From East to Western Sea,
Thou land of hope for all who toil!
Thou True North, strong and free!

Refrain
O Canada, glorious and free! etc.
O Canada! Beneth thy shining skies
May stalwart sons and gentle maidens rise,
To keep thee steadfast through the years
From East to Western Sea,
Our own beloved native land!
Our True North, strong and free!

Refrain
O Canada, glorious and free! etc.
Ruler supreme, who hearest humble prayer,
Hold our dominion within thy loving care;
Help us to find, O God, in thee
A lasting, rich reward,
As waiting for the Better Day,
We ever stand on guard.
