TALKING ABOUT CANADA
How is it going?
How much do you know about Canada?
Now, you can read the following text about the country of Canada.
Canada is part of North America.
A long time ago, Canada belonged
to Great Britain.
Over time, parts of the country joined together and
wanted to form their own government.
On July 1, 1867, the British government (under Queen Victoria) approved
a plan which allowed Canada to become an independent country with its own
government. This new nation, which remained loyal to Britain, was called
the Dominion of Canada. At that time, the new Dominion of Canada had only
four provinces (Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick).
Today, there are 10 provinces and 3 territories.
The leader of Canada is called the Prime Minister. Canada is run
by an democratically elected House of Commons and an appointed Senate.
The word “Canada” comes from the aboriginal word “Kanata” which means
village. A village is a small community, but Canada is anything but
small! Canada is a very big country. In fact, it is the second
largest country (by area) in the world.
