Happy Canada Day from Pak-N-Stor

History of Canada Day

July 1st is the 149th anniversary of the 1867 British North America Act which saw the formation of Canada as a country by uniting the three colonies Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and the Province of Canada. Alberta didn’t become a province of Canada until 1905.

July 1st didn’t officially become a statutory holiday until 1879, when it was called Dominion Day, because the country was referred to as a "Dominion" in the British North American Act. The holiday on July 1st was called Dominion Day for more than 100 years, 

It wasn’t until late 1982 that, Dominion Day was officially renamed as Canada Day, after many years of government debate.
