Canada, formerly the Dominion of Canada[1][2][3], 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 Canadians 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. A process of increasing autonomy from the United Kingdom culminating in the Canada Act 1982, which severed the vestiges of legal dependence on the Parliament of the United Kingdom.

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.

In 1949, after two referendums, the Dominion of Newfoundland joined Canada as a province. Today, Canada continues to remain a member of the Commonwealth, recognizing the Monarchs of the United Kingdom as the Monarch of Canada. Its military remains active on the world stage as part of NATO.
