Canada Day, called Dominion Day until 1982, is officially July 1, following National Aboriginal History Month in Canada.  This July 1 is Canada’s 150th anniversary. If you can’t visit in person, what better way than virtually. Check out some informative links to learn more about our neighbor to the north. It’s all found in Canada. Who are they anyway?

Start exploring Canada with Lonely Planet’s video guide to getting around, when to go and the top things to do while you’re there. For more serious information try the BBC report, “Canada 150: Its Contributions to the World” or the CIA World FactBook introduction.

For a light-hearted view of modern Canada try the Wolters World video, “Visit Canada – 5 Things You Will Love & Hate About Canada.”  However, for more detailed information about Canada visit the government’s “History and Heritage” site or one of these selected resources subscribed to by Falvey Library:

Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU)

Political Handbook of the World

 America: History and Life (EBSCO)
