Canada Day commemorates the creation of the Dominion of Canada. On July 1, 1867, the British North America Act established "one Dominion under the name of Canada" out of the colonies of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick, dividing it into four provinces named Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick.
This French national holiday commemorates the day in 1789 when peasants stormed Paris's Bastille prison and sparked the French Revolution. Celebrations throughout the country usually begin with a military parade and end with fireworks.
