Come celebrate Canada Day in Calgary, Alberta, every 1 July. Canada day, often called 'Canada's Birthday,’ honours the birth of the Constitution Act of 1867 whereby two British colonies came together to create the nation of Canada. The celebration is a legally recognised holiday for all of Canada, and every year much effort is made to celebrate it. It is usually celebrated with fireworks and food, and is even observed abroad by Canadian expatriate communities. Canada Day is a world famous event that brings out the best in Canadian culture and celebration, especially during the Canada Day parade. Canada Day has a long history that stretches back to 1868 when Viscount Monck issued a royal order for Canadians to celebrate the anniversary of their country. The holiday wasn’t formalised until almost a decade later and was originally called ‘Dominion Day’ in reference to the country’s status as a Dominion.
