The French first settled there in 1605 followed by the British in 1763.

In 1867 it became the Dominion of Canada.

It is a member of the British Commonwealth.

While Canada has the British Crowned Monarch as the head of state the Government of Canada is independent, autonomous and equal to the British Government, Australian Government or French Government.
