نام کانادا از کجا آمده است؟
نام کانادا از کلمه قدیمی Kanata به معنی «دهکده» و یا «سرپناه» می‌آید. در سال ۱۵۳۵، ساکنین این منطقه که اکنون با نام شهر کبک شناخته می‌شود، از این کلمه استفاده کردند تا نشانی این محل را به ژاک کارتیر که مقصدش به سمت دهکده استاداکونا بود، بدهند. کارتیر کلمه کانادا را هم برای آن دهکده و هم کل منطقه‌ای که در آن زمان به آن دونا کونا می‌گفتند استفاده می‌کرد. در سال ۱۵۴۷ در نقشه‌ها نیز با همین عنوان کانادا شناخته شد.
Where Does the Name ‘’Canada” Come From?
The name Canada comes from the St. Lawrence Iroquoian word kanata, meaning "village" or "settlement". In 1535, indigenous inhabitants of the present-day Quebec City region used the word to direct French explorer Jacques Cartier to the village of Stadacona. Cartier later used the word Canada to refer not only to that particular village, but the entire area subject to Donnacona (the chief at Stadacona); by 1545, European books and maps had begun referring to this region as Canada. 
In the 17th and early 18th centuries, "Canada" referred to the part of New France that lay along the St. Lawrence River and the northern shores of the Great Lakes. The area was later split into two British colonies, Upper Canada and Lower Canada. They were reunified as the Province of Canada in 1841. 
Upon Confederation in 1867, Canada was adopted as the legal name for the new country, and the word Dominion was conferred as the country's title. However, as Canada asserted its political autonomy from the United Kingdom, 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 Dominion Day to Canada Day in 1982.
