    CANADA DAY 

    THE READING / TAPESCRIPT

    Canada Day is on July the 1st every year. Canadians all around the world celebrate the day when their nation became a country on July 1, 1867. Today, it is a federal national holiday. Many Canadians call it “Canada’s birthday”. Canada Day recognizes the British North America Act of 1867. This united Canada as a single country made up of four provinces. The holiday was not widely celebrated until the early 20th century and was actually called Dominion Day until 1982. The first official celebrations took place in 1917, which was the golden anniversary of nationhood. Canada's centennial in 1967 marked the start of Canada Day being celebrated with real pride. Dominion Day officially changed to Canada Day on October 27, 1982.

    Canada Day is a time for Canadians to party. There are festivals and events all across the country. Canadian communities around the world also join in the fun. Most of the celebrations are outdoors. They include parades, fireworks displays and music concerts. There are also citizenship ceremonies for people becoming new citizens. Canada Day is quite a colourful occasion and it celebrates the nation’s multi-ethnicity. Canada is a very cosmopolitan country, so you can expect to see flags from all around the world being waved as well as the Canadian flag. Not every Canadian is happy on this day. Many people in the French-speaking province of Quebec see no reason to celebrate. They want their own independence from Canada.
