Canada, officially the Dominion of Canada (but this name has seldom used since 1982), is a sovereign country comprising much of northern North America.

Canada is one of the eighteen British Commonwealth Realms and thus a member of the Commonwealth of Nations. It is also a member of the United Nations, the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, and the North American Free Trade Agreement.
