🍁 Canada Day 🍁 Fête du Canada 🍁

🎉 When? July 1st!
🎉 Quand? 1er juillet!

Canada Day / La Fête du Canada, is an annual national holiday celebrating the anniversary of the Constitution Act, 1867, which united the separate colonies of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and the Province of Canada (now Ontario and Québec) into one Dominion in the British Empire. While still a British colony, the Act gave Canada control over its own politics and government, the first of many milestones towards Canada’s full independence!

A lot of changes have been made since then:

  • the Constitution Act, 1867 had been first known as the “British North America Act, 1867
  • “Canada Day” was celebrated as the “Anniversary of Confederation” by 1879, then later as “Dominion Day”
  • and it isn’t until October 27, 1982 it is officially “Canada Day”!

After the passing of Constitution Act, 1867, Canada steadily gained independence until the passing of the Constitution Act, 1982 (and with it, the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms / La Charte canadienne des droits et libertés), which served to fully patriate the Canadian constitution, the final step to Canada’s complete sovereignty!

Now a country of ten provinces and three territories from just a Dominion of four provinces, Canada is the second largest country by area in the world!

Provinces and Territories of Canada / Les provinces et territoires du Canada:

  • Alberta
  • British Columbia / Colombie-Britannique
  • Manitoba
  • New Brunswick / Nouveau-Brunswick
  • Newfoundland and Labrador / Terre-Neuve-et-Labrador
  • Northwest Territories / Territoires du Nord-Ouest
  • Nova Scotia / Nouvelle-Écosse
  • Nunavut
  • Ontario
  • Prince Edward Island / Île-du-Prince-Édouard 
  • Québec
  • Saskatchewan
  • Yukon

SUMMER BEDROOM MAKEOVER 😎☀️

It’s summer! 

For many of us, it’s a time of change; a shift in weather, in temperature, in school schedules, and/or in work schedules. And for some, it’s a time of leisure and relaxation! 🏖️

The changing of seasons always sparks inspiration in me to reassess and to rethink my surroundings and routine! And maybe it’s the same for you, too! Now I won’t be back in school until September, and while I am working more hours in the summer break, I still do have a bit more down time to pursue arts and crafts, which does make summer so much more exciting!
