Dominion Day was the name of the holiday commemorating the formation of Canada as a Dominion on 1 July 1867. The holiday was renamed to Canada Day by Act of Parliament on 27 October 1982.
Dominion Day was the name of the holiday commemorating the formation of Newfoundland as a Dominion on 26 September 1907 (same day as New Zealand) and was celebrated until it entered into confederation with Canada in 1949.
Dominion Day is the name given to 26 September, the anniversary of the day in 1907 when New Zealand was granted Dominion status within the British Empire. No longer a statutory (bank) holiday, the only current official observance of the day is as a Provincial Anniversary Day in South Canterbury and is celebrated on the fourth Monday of September. There is support in some quarters for the day to be revived as an alternative New Zealand Day, instead of renaming Waitangi Day, New Zealand's current national day.
