Canada Day was first celebrated on July 1, 1867. This signified that Canada became a self-governing dominion of Great Britain. People used to call this Dominion Day up to the year 1982. This was the only time. Ever since 1983, people started to refer to this as Canada Day.

They made sure that they will make an effort to celebrate the time when they have finally become free. Some people will sing a lot of music, especially those who love singing along to their national song. A lot of people would also drink as much as they can to enjoy and celebrate with the rest of their friends.

June 20, 1867, Governor General Lord Monck signed a proclamation which requests all Her Majesty's subjects across Canada to celebrate July 1. The day was celebrated as Dominion day until 1983 when it was official declared as Canada Day. Hope you find this helpful.
