Here's a little break down for you, from pch.gc.ca on our National Holiday, happening tomorrow!

 

Canada’s national holiday is celebrated on July 1.

 

Canadians across the country and around the world show their pride in their history, culture and achievements. It’s been a day of celebration, where many festivities are held across the country, since 1868.

The Creation of Canada Day

July 1, 1867: The British North America Act (today known as the Constitution Act, 1867) created Canada.

June 20, 1868: Governor General Lord Monck signs a proclamation that requests all Her Majesty’s subjects across Canada to celebrate July 1.

1879: A federal law makes July 1 a statutory holiday as the “anniversary of Confederation,” which is later called “Dominion Day.”

October 27, 1982: July 1, “Dominion Day” officially becomes Canada Day.

 

Happy birthday Canada!

 

 

I trust you will all have a great day of celebrations, fireworks, barbeques, sunscreen and loved ones!

 

Because YOU Deserve the Best ...
