The Dominion of Canada or Canada was a country in North America that was part of the British Empire as a self governing Dominion founded on July 1, 1864. Canada was effectively ended in 1937 with the start of the Canadian Civil War between French-Canadians (the Quebecois) and the English-Canadians (the Nationalists), although it was officially dismantled in 1946 with Assiniboia laying claim to a large part of Ontario, Quebec being formed from the previous Province of Quebec with New Brusnwick and a part of Ontario including Toronto, and Newfoundland being created from the Island of the same name with Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.
