TALKING ABOUT CANADA

Hi There!!!



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.
