Canadian Confederation happened on July 1st, 1867, however, this was not a Declaration of Independence as Canada was part of the British Empire. The Statute of Westminster in 1931 set the country as an independent realm with allegiance to the Crown as the 'Dominion of Canada'. The current Head of the House of Windsor remains the monarch of Canada.

It hasn't. Canada is a domain of Great Britain, meaning that while it has its own parliament which control all its affairs its head of state is still the British Monarch, so their monarch is also Queen Elizabeth.

In the Canada Act of 1982, Canada were granted complete legal Independence form the British Government, meaning that it was a federal state with a parliamentary democracy. Though it was still a constitutional monarchy with the monarch also being the British monarch.

Canada never really declared independence from the British. Canada's freedom was a gradual process that happened with time. It gained complete control over itself after the passage of the Statute of Westminster in Britain in 1931.

Is Canada independent today? It cannot patrol it's borders, is a protectorate of the United States, cannot control it's trade or economic policies.

But if you need a year use 1867.
