Canada Day, commonly called "Canada's Birthday", is always celebrated on July 1st, unless it falls on a Sunday, in which case July 2 is the official holiday. This day celebrates the joining of the British North American colonies of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick with the Provinces of Canada - Ontario and Quebec, into one federation on July 1st, 1867. It was originally called Dominion Day and officially changed in 1982 to Canada Day.
