Which two provinces joined Canada in 1905?

To "join" implies that two entities existed separately, and then became one. While Alberta and Saskatchewan became provinces on September 1, 1905, it was because they were created out of the Northwest Territories by the Government of Canada. These provinces did not exist as separate entities before September 1, 1905, and therefore could not "join" Canada. It is better to say that they "entered Confederation" on September 1, 1905.

How long did aboriginal people reside in Canada before europeans came?

Depends on which group. Immigration from Asia started about 15,000 years ago and has been ongoing since then. Some Aboriginal people, the Inuit for example would have arrived as recently as 1,000 years ago, displacing previous cultures. This would have occurred through out Canada just as it had every else. Canada is just one step in our migration out of Africa to South America. When thinking of Canada keep in mind that no one lived in most of Canada 10,000 years ago as most of it was under Ice. Only after the ice sheet retreated could people live in most of what is today Canada, and the land would take hundreds, in some areas, thousands of years before it would become habitable. Europeans arrived in Canada about 1,000 years ago. Unless of course they arrived before the Clovis people.

How did Canada east feel about Canada west joining the Confederation?

Canada East and Canada West were already part of a political union, the Province of Canada, before Confederation, so they wouldn't have seen each other as joining Confederation. In the Province of Canada, Confederation was seen as a solution to a domestic issue. The Parliament of Canada was ineffective because a double majority of MPs from Canada West and Canada East was needed in order to pass legislation. Governments were fragile and short lived political coalitions, and they could never get anything done because the two regions could not agree on anything.Federalism brought greater autonomy for the two regions by granting them self government, and strengthened the central government by freeing it from the need to please everybody all the time and by bringing in more parties to the union, namely Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, which helped to correct the adversarial East/West dynamic.

Why did Canada west join the confederation?

Canada West didn't join confederation. It was the name given to what had been Upper Canada before it joined with Lower Canada to become the Province of Canada. This united province then confederated with Nova Scotia and New Brunswick in 1867 and was split into Ontario and Quebec. One of the reasons Canada sought confederation with its neighbouring colonies was to resolve its own political deadlock between the primarily English Canada West and the primarily French Canada East. Other influences included the desire to build an inter-colony rail road, as well as the desire to strengthen British North America against attack by the United States.
