What is Canada Day & How to Celebrate This Year in Vancouver & Toronto 

Canada Day, celebrated on July 1st, marks the anniversary of the confederation of Canada. On this day in 1867, the British North America Act (now called the Constitution Act, 1867) combined the three separate colonies of the United Province of Canada, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia into a single Dominion within the British Empire called Canada. It is a national holiday and is often celebrated with fireworks, parades, concerts, barbecues, and other activities across the country.
