Best Answer

Canadian Confederation happened on July 1st, 1867, however, this was not a Declaration of Independence as Canada was part of the British Empire. The Statute of Westminster in 1931 set the country as an independent realm with allegiance to the Crown as the 'Dominion of Canada'. The current Head of the House of Windsor remains the monarch of Canada.
