What Is Canada 150?

If you haven’t heard by now, Canada is celebrating its 150th birthday. That’s right—2017 marks 150 years since Confederation, or its sesquicentennial. On July 1, 1867, only four provinces—Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick—made up the new Dominion of Canada. The rest joined and were formed in the years that followed. However, Canadian sovereignty wasn’t achieved until 1982.

And this year isn’t an anniversary only for Canada. Montreal is celebrating 375 years since Fort Ville-Marie was founded in 1642, and the NHL has been around for 100 years, as well.
