On July 1, 1867, Confederation was proclaimed. It marked the birth of today’s Canada and the culmination of a process that took nearly thirty years. This exhibition invites visitors to explore the journey of a society in transition and of people who fought, negotiated, and made compromises to better coexist. By presenting the pivotal moments that led to the drafting of the British North America Act, the exhibition helps visitors recognize a legacy that is still echoed in our identity, our values and our institutions.
An exhibition created by the Canadian Museum of History.
January 1st-March 26th, 2022 at the Lacombe Flatiron Building Museum
