  • In 1534 Jacques Cartier raised the flag of France on the area of Canada.

HISTORY

  • Large numbers of English-speaking people, called Loyalists - wishing to remain faithful (věrní) to the British Crown – came to Canada after the USA won its independence in 1776 by their Declaration of Independence. People settled mainly the colonies of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, and along the Great Lakes.
  • In 1791Upper Canada (now Ontario) and Lower Canada (Quebec) were created and both were granted their own representative governing institutions. Rebellions in the 1830 prompted (přiměla) the British to form the united Province of Canada giving it responsible government – except in matters of foreign affairs in 1848.

HISTORY

  • The development of Canada’s powerful neighbour – the USA – led Canada East, Canada West, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick to join together under the terms of the British North America Act into the Dominion of Canada on July 1st 1867.
  • Other provincies gradually joined: Manitoba, British Columbia, Prince Edward Island and in the 20th century also Saskatchewan, Alberta and Newfoudland.
  • During the prewar period, Canada profited from the prosperous world economy and established itself as an industrial as well as an agriculture power. In 1931 Canada’s constituonal autonomy from Britain was confirmed with the passing of the Statute of Westminster.
