On July 1, 1867, Confederation was proclaimed. It marked the birth of today’s Canada and the culmination of a process that took nearly 30 years. 1867 – Rebellion and Confederation invites us 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 souvenir catalogue helps us recognize a legacy that is still echoed in our identity, our values and our institutions.
