HAPPY CANADA DAY 2020!

Canada Day MyBrilliantStar

Every year Canada Day reminds us of the greatness and beauty of our wonderful country. Here are some interesting facts surrounding this national holiday:

The name Canada derives from the Iroquoian word for "village," kanata, that French explorers heard used to refer to the area near present-day Quebec City.

As one important milestone for Canada's independence, Canada Day celebrates the joining on July 1, 1867, of the colonies of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick into a wider British federation of four provinces. The holiday was officially given statutory value in 1879 and was first named Dominion Day.

Did you also know? Canada's national animal - the beaver - was introduced in 1975, even though it held significance for Canada long before this date. The trade of beaver pelts was an important part of the early economy due to its profitability.

Enjoy the birthday of our great country!
