Best Answer

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.

Canada became a country on July 1, 1867. The term "dominion" is a historical reference to Sec. 3 of the British North America Act which states "one dominion under the name of Canada". Canada was never officially called "The Dominion of Canada".

Canada, the first country to be created by legislation, came into being on July 1, 1867. The word "dominion" was never part of Canada's name. (See section 3 of the British North America Act.)

They became a dominion in 1867 but Britain had been trying to get their colonies to become self governing before that. Even as early as the 1830's British representatives were suggesting union and responsible government.

When was the dominion of Canada formed?

Canada officially became a country on July 1, 1867. The first provinces were Quebec, Ontario, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick. (The term "Dominion" is simply a historical reference to Section 3 of the British North America Act: "one dominion under the name of Canada". Canada was never known officially as "The Dominion of Canada". It found its way into popular venues such as paper currency and school maps. However, on Canadian bills it was meant as "The Dominion Under Canada" and on school maps as "The Queen's Dominion of Canada".)
