Canadians celebrate their independence on July 1- Canada Day. Their celebration is similar to the United States 4th of July with parades, concerts, ceremonies, and fireworks. The British North America Act established the federal government of Canada on July 1, 1867 and united the British colonies of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Ontario, and Quebec. The British continued to maintain some influence until the Constitution Act of 1982.
