Best Answer

Canada was the first country to be created by legislation.

The British North America Act (now the Constitution Act) created Canada as a federation, uniting Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the pre-Confederation Province of Canada (see section 3). Upon Confederation, the pre-Confederation Province of Canada was severed into the Provinces of Québec and Ontario (see section 6).

Therefore, although it is correct to say that Québec was one of Canada's four original provinces, it is incorrect to say that Québec 'joined' Confederation.
