Canada Day coloring pages

Coloring pages for Canada day. Canada Day is the national day of Canada. This day celebrates the anniversary of Canadian Confederation which occurred on July 1, 1867, where the four separate colonies of Upper Canada, Lower Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick were united into a single Dominion within the British Empire called Canada. The coloring pages of Canada day should be painted in bright, happy and vibrant colors because it is a happy day and you should use a lot of red and white colors, which are the flagship colors of Canada. 
Canada is celebrating its Independence Day on July 1st. On this date in 1867 Canada received from the British Empire that ruled it, a right of self-government.
According to historians, the first inhabitants of Canada were the Indigenous peoples who lived there for about 10,000 years. In about 1000, the Vikings came to North America, led by Leifur Eiríksson, and called the Vinland area.
The Vikings, who came from northern Europe, encountered resistance from the Native Americans and were forced to leave. In the 17th century, the French came to the area and established new European settlements.
In 1763, the French and Natives War ended in North America for nine years, from 1754 to 1763, in parallel with the Seven Years' War in Europe. The French Empire decided to hold the Caribbean while the British Empire decided to hold Canada. After the American Revolutionary War, many settlers who were loyal to Britain moved to Canada.
On July 1, 1867, Independent Canada was established, which was a federation of three colonies: the Province of Canada, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. The old colony of Canada was divided into two: Quebec and Ontario. This union is called the "Canadian Federation". More British colonies joined the union soon after, and by 1880 Canada had all the territory it had today, except Newfoundland and Labrador, which joined in 1949. Canada today is the second largest country in the world, right after Russia. Its area is 9,984,670 square kilometers and its population is about 35 million inhabitants.
