Canada is a land of vast distances and rich natural resources; it became a self-governing dominion in 1867 while retaining ties to the British crown. In 1982, Canada entirely broke from its colonial past; it transferred the country's highest law, the British North America Act (which was renamed the Constitution Act, 1867), from the British Parliament's authority to Canada's federal and provincial legislatures.

Economically and technologically, Canada has developed in parallel with the US. The country faces the political challenges of meeting public demands for quality improvements in health care, education, social services, and economic competitiveness and responding to the particular concerns of predominantly francophone Quebec. Canada also aims to develop its diverse energy resources while maintaining its commitment to the environment.
