Manitoba was the 5th province to join Canada.


While Manitoba was the fifth province to "enter Confederation," it was not the fifth province to "join" Canada. To "join" indicates that two prior existing bodies became one. Manitoba did not exist until the Government of Canada created it as a province out of Northwest Territories on July 15, 1870. Therefore, Manitoba did not "join" Canada.

The three provinces that originally joined together on July 1, 1867, to create Canada were Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the pre-Confederation Province of Canada. Upon Confederation, the pre-Confederation Province of Canada was severed into the Provinces of Québec and Ontario, but likewise Québec and Ontario did not "join" Canada.

The colony of British Columbia was the fourth province to "join" Canada (July 20, 1871) and the fifth province to "join" was Prince Edward Island (July 1, 1873).
