On July 1, 1867, the Constitution Act united three colonies into a single country called Canada. You can learn more about the formation of Canada and about some of the key figures in Canadian history in this Esri map of Canada's Nation Builders.
The map includes 41 pen portraits of significant individuals important to Canada's early history. The individuals are all mapped by their place of birth. The map itself is a vintage Mercator map of the world.
Each of the pen portraits on Canada's nation builders includes a link to learn more about the individual on Wikipedia.
