A TRAVELLING EXHIBITION DEVELOPED BY THE CANADIAN MUSEUM OF HISTORY.
On July 1, 1867, Confederation was proclaimed, marking the birth of today’s Canada and the culmination of a journey that had taken nearly 30 years.
This exhibition explores the route to nationhood taken by a society in transition, and by the people who fought, negotiated and made compromises to forge a more peaceable union.
By tracing the pivotal moments leading to the draft of the British North America Act, this exhibition helps visitors to better understand how this legacy continues to affect our identity, our values and our institutions.
