Today marks Canada’s 150th birthday! Established as a union and independent country dating back to 1867, we celebrate our country’s strength and beauty on this day. Although the official independence of Canada was acquired just a century and a half ago, the word Canada was derived by the Huron-Iroquois word Kanata, which means settlement. MyBrilliantStar wishes all Canadians at home and abroad a festive and safe Canada Day 2017.
