In which year did Canada officially become a country?




  1. It's a country? I thought it was a state of America?

  2. Canada became a country in 1867. Each year on 1º July, Canada Day celebrates the events that occurred on 1 July 1867

  3. Canada never "declared our independence" through a violent war or revolution, but rather took over more and more powers slowly through negotiation.  The "British North America Act" took effect on July 1st, 1867 by the British Parliament and it was this Act that created "Canada" as, effectively, entirely independent.

    The symbolic British Queen is still honored on Canadian currency, gets dicounts on air travel (yes, this is true) and is mentioned in some formal government proceedings.

  4. July 1st, 1867.

  5. 1867.    July 1st.

  6. It remains a dominion like Australia and NewZealand.

  7. As was mentioned by ~D~ above Canada officially become a country in 1982 when The Canada Act was passed repatriating our constitution.

    However Canada symbolically became a nation on August 5th 1914 when it declared war on Germany 1 day after Great Britain declared war thus proclaiming our independence.

  8. Canada became The Dominion of Canada on July 1st, 1867.

    Canada officially became a country in 1982.
