Canada Day always reminds us how wonderful and unique our country is. Here are some interesting facts surrounding Canada:
Canada Day is essentially our Independence Day. It celebrates the day Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Ontario (then Upper Canada) & Quebec (then lower Canada) came together on July 1, 1867 to form our Constitution Act. The holiday was officially given statutory value in 1879 and was first called Dominion Day.
Canada's national animal - the beaver - was introduced in 1975, even though it held significance for Canada long before this date. The trade of beaver pelts was an important part of the early economy due to its profitability. Beavers look nice, however they can be vicious. They have been known to attack humans even though you wouldn't expect that.
And did you also know? Canada has the longest coastline of any country in the world at 151,600 miles.
Enjoy Canada Day with your loved ones!
