Happy Canada Day
As I write this blog wishing Canada a Happy Birthday, I think to myself… “How old is Canada…?”
After extensive internet research, I discovered that Canada was established as a self-governing country on July 1st, 1867.
There were places called Canada before official Confederation, though. Really, Canada dates back to 1535, when Jacques Cartier first discovered it. However, even before that Canada was inhabited by the Aboriginals. They called it Canata, hence the name Canada. As of July 1st 2011, Canada is 144 years old.
