While Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) and his supporters are celebrating the first anniversary of his landslide election victory on Monday, July 1, Canadians in Mexico and around the world are commemorating their country’s national holiday, Canada Day.

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.
