On March 29, 1867, the Confederation Act, 1867, known then as the British North America Act, was passed by the British Parliament. The three separate colonies of the Province of Canada, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick were unified into the Dominion of Canada and a parliamentary system based on that of Great Britain was established, forming the Government of Canada. The Act came into full effect on July 1, 1867. The provinces of Manitoba, Prince Edward Island, British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Newfoundland were added soon after.
