One hundred and fifty one years ago, July 1, 1867, a nation was born when Canada enacted the Constitution Act, uniting Quebec, Ontario, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia – to create the Canadian Confederation, called the Dominion of Canada. In the years that followed, the other provinces and territories joined the Dominion, making today’s Canada a mari usque ad mare (“from sea to sea”). The name ‘Canada’ is derived from the Huron-Iroquois word ‘kanata’ meaning “village” or “settlement” and has been in use since the 16th century.

Proud to be Canadian.

O Canada!

O Canada! Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!
From far and wide, O Canada,
We stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
