Happy Birthday Canada

Blog by Doriana Zohil, Broker of Record/Owner | July 1st, 2018

At MAC Real Estate, “it’s not business… it’s personal”. The success of MAC Real Estate is due to Canada’s freedom and peaceful existence. On July 1st, we celebrate Canada’s birthday.

July 1, 1867 marked the day the British North America Act (now known as the Constitution Act) was enacted. On that day, Canada became its own country, within the British Empire. At the time, there were only three colonies. Today, Canada has 10 provinces and 3 territories, and covers 9.98 million square kilometers of land.

Many have asked what “Canada” means. It originates from an Iroquoian word “Kanata”, which means village or settlement. We couldn’t ask for a better name.

Happy Canada Day! Fête du Canada!
