Canada Day

Today Canadians across the world will be celebrating Canada Day.

Canada Day is celebrated on the 1st July every year, in commemoration of the Constitution Act 1867(formerly know as the British North American Act 1867), which united three British colonies into a single country called Canada.  The day was known as Dominion Day up until 1982 when Canada became fully independent from the UK.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will today be at Parliament Hill to watch the Canada Day Celebrations.

Why not let the Jubilee Time Capsule know how you’ll be celebrating Canada Day?
