Canada is a country that occupies most of the Northern region of North America. First settled by the French and was later conquered by British and American colonial forces during the Seven Years' War, by 1867 the British North American Colonies of Upper Canada, Lower Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick united to form the Dominion of Canada. As a Dominion of the British Empire, Canada became a self governing colony with its own laws and customs.
As a part of the British Empire, Canada became involved in the First World War when Great Britain declared war on August 4, 1914. A great many Candians died during the war, an experience which laid the foundations of a Canadian national identity. For their sacrifices during the Great War, Canada earned a seat at the Paris Peace Talks of 1919 and became a signatory of the Treaty of Versailles. In late 1931, the country gained independence from Great Britain through the Statute of Westminster.
On September 10, 1939, Canada declared war on Nazi Germany, one week after Great Britain. During World War II, Canada participated in many battles of the war, including the Battle of Britain, Battle of the Atlantic, the infamous Dieppe Raid, and various operations in the European and Mediterranean theatres. Over 1 million Canadians would serve in all branches of the military by the end of the war.
Today, Canada continues to remain a member of the Commonwealth, recognising Queen Elizabeth II as the Queen of Canada. Its military remains active on the world stage as part of NATO, and has most recently seen deployment in Afghanistan.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2Edit
Though Canada does not play a significant or prominent role in Battlefield: Bad Company 2, its northern territories of the Yukon and the North-West Territories are partially under Russian occupation prior to the events of the game. This occupation appears to have expanded to the point where Canada is overrun as seen in the final cutscene for Battlefield: Bad Company 2.
