When was the Dominion of Canada established?

Canada was formed in 1867. Canada was formed partly because of economic needs. Provinces could easily trade with each other giving people more places to sell their products. As a country, Canadians could also more easily defend themselves against threats from other countries. In the 1860's, people in Canada were concerned about attack from the United States, especially since Canada was a British colony at that time. The Americans were not on good terms with the British.

What year did Canada break away from Britain?

Because of their parliament. Britain let them have their own parliament and the Canadians set it up so they could survive on their own. This was their plan, to break away from Great Britain after World War 2, while the British were weak. Therefore the British wouldn't fight to get it back. Also, the Americans would have aided Canada in a fight against Britain anyways, because many Americans want Canada to be part of the U.S. Save __ Canada gained independence but retained ties with Britain. There was no plan, or need to fight for independence (despite what the above person seems to think). In 1867, the Dominion of Canada was formed, so Canada was independent long before WW2. Canada was became a country (no longer a colony) with the passing if the BNA in 1867. It was an Act of British Parliament that granted independence. To this day Canada is still a member of the Commonwealth and the Queen of England is also the Queen of Canada (although the role is strictly ceremonial).

In what year did canada became a country?

July 1 , 1867Before that, the land Canada was named Canada after the Iroquois word 'kanata' or village, when in the 16th century Jacques Cartier's party from France took the word to mean the land at which they had arrived. A colony named Canada was established in 1534 as one of 5 colonies of New France.Upper Canada and Lower Canada were established as British colonies in 1791. These were combined into the Province of Canada in 1841 with the 1840 Act of Union.Canada became a dominion country (more like Kingdom under British rule) in 1867, as shown on top. This meant, whatever laws were passed in England were also passed in Canada and British politics stretched over the Atlantic. But Canada really became a dependent country, years later after the first and second world wars, in 1982. This meant a sense of freedom in the wind; British laws and politics and basically everything had no effect whatsoever in Canada and this went into immediate affect.And the Canada Act was proved when our small 12 million strong country proved magnificent strength in the two great wars, by aiding the mother land (in other words, Great Britain) while the U.S took it's sweet time on whether or not it should join the war and help destroy the Axispowers.
