Ontario's Legislative Assembly - 1867 to Today

On July 1st, 1867, the British North America Act was passed by Parliament in the United Kingdom creating Canada – a land with four provinces united under a central federal government.

Today, Canada is a vast country with 10 provinces spanning North America from Atlantic to Pacific Oceans and reaching far into the arctic with its three territories. As the country’s most populous region, the province of Ontario is governed by a parliament rich in tradition and history that has served a diverse and growing population since its beginning over 150 years ago.
