History
After the American Civil War, between 1861 and 1865, it was feared that the USA would annex Canadian territory. As a defense measure, several provinces signed an agreement in 1897, the British North America Act, which created Canada's domain. In the First World War, the country sent more than 600,000 men to fight in Europe and, in 1939, it again sided with the Allies. Later, he also fought in the Korean War and offered peacekeepers to Cyprus, Suez and other areas.

French separatism was a major concern during the second half of the 20th century. Since the 1960s, the Quebec Party has pressured the authorities to achieve separation. During the 1980s and 1990s, several constitutional reform programs were carried out, with the aim of granting greater autonomy to Quebec, but none of them were approved.

In 1982, with the Canada Act, the country gained full control over its Constitution, in addition to tracing the relationship between Canada and the United Kingdom. Currently, each of the provinces has its own elected parliament. In any case, provincial laws are binding only in the respective province (in contrast to federal legislation, which is national). The Head of State is the Queen of England, who is represented by the Governor-General. The federal state lives in a multiparty parliamentary regime, in which the prime minister governs together with the senate and the House of Commons.
