2017 is the year Canada celebrates its 150th birthday!
An important history…
One hundred and fifty years ago in Charlottetown and Québec City, the Fathers of
Confederation first dreamed of a united and prosperous Canada.
Fathers of Confederation - Quebec Conference
A convincing proposal, first introduced at the Charlottetown Conference, was elaborated at the
Québec Conference, and became the framework for Confederation. Three years later, the vision of a
union was realized at the London Conference with the creation of the British North America Act.
The Act finalized the union of the provinces
and on July 1, 1867, gave birth to the Dominion of Canada.
The term ‘dominion’ was a common term used primarily with British colonies. The Premier of
New Brunswick, Sir Samuel Leonard Tilley, suggested its use in Canada’s name as he was inspired from
"He shall have dominion also from sea to sea,
and from the river unto the ends of the earth."
Canada, a nation with heaven’s blessing in its name!
Canada, a nation with hope and vision for unity and prosperity!
In honour of those who dreamed of a bright future…
