With long-awaited first days of summer, a beautiful holiday marks the calendar – Canada Day. Canadians celebrate their national day on July 1. It is the anniversary of the July 1, 1867, enactment of the Constitution Act, which united the three separate colonies of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick into a Dominion of Canada. This date is considered one of the greatest milestones in Canadian history.

Often, this day is a time to reflect on deep questions of identity. What does Canada Day mean to you? What does it mean to be Canadian? In Week 1 of Summer Course, we will look back into history to define what we are today.

This week, you will:

  • learn why we celebrate Canada Day
  • describe an event in the past (Canada Day, your National Day)
