Etymology

Main article: HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Name_of_Canada»
\o «Name of Canada» Name of Canada

HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacques_Cartier» \o «Jacques
Cartier» Jacques Cartier

The name Canada comes from a HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Lawrence_Iroquoians» \o «St. Lawrence
Iroquoians» St. Lawrence Iroquoian word, kanata, meaning «village» or
«settlement». In 1535, indigenous inhabitants of the present-day
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quebec_City» \o «Quebec City»
Quebec City region used the word to direct French explorer HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacques_Cartier» \o «Jacques Cartier»
Jacques Cartier towards the village of HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stadacona» \o «Stadacona» Stadacona .
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canada» \l «cite_note-9» \o «»
[10] Cartier later used the word Canada to refer not only to that
particular village, but also the entire area subject to HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donnacona» \o «Donnacona» Donnacona (the
chief at Stadacona); by 1545, European books and maps had begun
referring to this region as Canada. HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canada» \l «cite_note-10» \o «» [11]

From the early 17th century onwards, that part of HYPERLINK

Canada , until their re-unification as the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Province_of_Canada» \o «Province of

«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_Confederation» \o «Canadian

the legal name for the new country, HYPERLINK

combined, the term Dominion of Canada was in common usage until the
1950s. Thereafter, as Canada asserted its political autonomy from
Britain, the federal government increasingly used simply Canada on state
documents and treaties, a change that was reflected in the renaming of
the national holiday from HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dominion_Day» \o «Dominion Day» Dominion
Day to HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canada_Day» \o «Canada
