IMPORTANCE OF CANADA DAY
Canada is America’s largest country on the North side and every year it is a must to celebrate the CANADA DAY on 1st of July. It was the day of the date when the great nation of Canada was born and it is marked as Canada day.
The Canadian province and the New Brunswick province were merged into one big country under the constitution act of 1867 later where the Canadian province however failed to survive. Due to this, it was then divided into two parts, Ontario and Quebec and the whole country was renamed Canada.
Until 1982, despite Canada being declared a country, it was not completely independent from the British empire. Till now, the Queen is the monarch and also the Head of state who rules the country.

CANADA DAY HISTORY
As we already stated how every year of July 1st is celebrated as Canada Day since 1867. On that particular year on July 1st, the British North America Act was finally passed. To create a unified, self-dependent Dominion of Canada, joining all the colonies, Canada emerged as Britain's self-governing domain with Canada now having 13 territories and provinces. This is when in 1982, Canada Day replaced Dominion Day.
