Canada's 150th anniversary

In 2017, Canada will mark the 150th anniversary of Confederation.

Did you know that when Canada became a country in 1867, it included only four provinces: New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Ontario and Québec? The War of 1812 is an important milestone of the 150th anniversary of Canada. It laid Canada as a free and independent nation, and marked the beginning of two centuries of peaceful relation and friendship between Canada and the United States. Canada would not exist had the American invasion of 1812-1815 been successful. Three important Conferences were seminal moments in Canada’s history; The Charlottetown Conference (1864), the Québec Conference (1864) and the London Conference (1866). All of them gave delegates a forum to debate the future of British North America.
