An Act for the Union of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick, and the Government thereof; and for Purposes connected therewith.

(29th March, 1867.)

WHEREAS the Provinces of Canada, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick have expressed their Desire to be federally united into One Dominion under the Crown of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, with a Constitution similar in Principle to that of the United Kingdom:

And whereas such a Union would conduce to the Welfare of the Provinces and promote the Interests of the British Empire:

And whereas on the Establishment of the Union by the Authority of Parliament it is expedient, not only that the Constitution of the Legislative Authority in the Dominion be provided for, but also that the Nature of the Executive Government therein be declared:

And whereas it is expedient that Provision be made for the eventual Admission into the Union of other Parts of British North America: ...



A nation born of war has a heart of iron. A nation born of peace has a heart of gold.

Y'know, I should keep up better with First Nations news... I think they're regaining control of some territory and have been given some autonomy to govern here as well. At least there's the Nunavut Territory that was established in April 1999.

If Canada was formed in March, why is Canada Day in July?

Because the British North America Act (which united the first 4 provinces) came into effect on July 1st, 1867. :)

The British North America Act was approved by Queen Victoria in March (so that's the date that the act bears), but it comes into effect July 1, 1867.
