Canadian Confederation (French: Confédération canadienne) was the process by which the federal Dominion of Canada was formed, officially beginning on July 1, 1867. On that date, three British colonies were formed into four Canadian provinces. The British Province of Canada was divided into the new Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec, and two other British colonies, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, also became provinces of Canada.

Terminology

Canada is a federal state and not a confederate association of sovereign states, the usual meaning of confederation; but is often considered to be among the world's most decentralized federations.[1]
