The history of Canada started with the advent of this territory by some early inhabitants who were the ancient Asian tribes. These tribes travelled all the way across the Strait of Bering and found out the settlement in this locality. After that, many tribes came in and started embedding their customs and traditions in the Canadian culture. The Quebec City was then added in 1600 to the Canadian territory founded by Samuel De Champlain. Since this was the time of the French invaders, Canada was declared a province of the French Republic.
The rule of France could not stay for long since the British people were getting relentless and impatient to get their rule on this territory. Moreover, when Britain started showing its interest in 1670 on the Canadian province, the hostilities increased a lot between the French and British and the French consequently succumbed to the British by signing the ‘Treaty of Paris’ in the year 1763. In this treaty, France handed the Canadian Province to Britain.
The after effects were however quite severe and the two cultures had clashed really severely together. Meanwhile, the United States started to show interest in the Canadian Territory. It was really hard to resist them at that time since the United States was becoming a growing power at that time. Finally in 1867, the famous act between the British and Americans took place which gave Canada a separate freedom to self-govern itself. This act was known as the British North American Act (BNA Act).
The final name to Canada was given when in 1791, the Province of Quebec divided itself into two different colonies, namely the Upper and Lower Canada. So confusion arose between the two ‘Canadas’. So in 1841, both Quebec and Canadian Province were amalgamated into a single province which was known as the province of Canada. It was the Confederation of States in which this Canadian ‘Province’ was finally given the name of a ‘Country’.
This concludes the way Canada was successful in achieving its power as a separate country and a separate self-governing state with its own powers.
