Canada as a nation was born in 1867. Today is our 144th birthday. Celebrations all over the city and country. Stores and offices closed. This celebrates the signing of the British North America Act (today called the Constitution Act, 1867), which united three British colonies into a single country. Originally called Dominion Day, the name was changed in 1982, the year that Canada gained full independence from the United Kingdom.
