Although in Mexico, it was lost in the fervor of Mexico’s unprecedented presidential election, which brought a victory to leftist populist leader Andrés Manuel López Obrador, and the ever-tightening vying for the championship of the World Cup soccer match, Canada celebrated its national day on Sunday, July 1.

Canada Day celebrates the creation of the dominion of Canada through the British North America Act of July 1, 1867, uniting three British territories, the Province of Canada (composed of southern Ontario and southern Quebec), Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, into a single federation.

Originally called Dominion Day, the title of the holiday was officially changed in 1982.
