Canada Day is celebrated every year on July 1 in honor of the formation of the Canadian federal government on July 1, 1867 (the British North America Act). If it falls on a Sunday, the next day is considered a legal holiday. This holiday was called Dominion Day until 1982.
Canada Day is celebrated much like our Independence Day, with picnics, parades, festivals, and of course fireworks.
