The 150th anniversary of Canada, also known as the 150th anniversary of Confederation and promoted by the Canadian government as Canada 150, occurred in 2017 as Canada marked the sesquicentennial anniversary of Canadian Confederation. Canadian Confederation was the process by which the British colonies of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick were united into one Dominion of Canada on July 1, 1867. Upon confederation, the old province of Canada was divided into Ontario and Quebec; along with Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, the new federation thus comprised four provinces. Over the years since Confederation, Canada has seen numerous territorial changes and expansions, resulting in the current union of ten provinces and three territories.

Viewed from a unique perspective, the map of Canada has a distinctive dimensional feel to it as the viewer's eye sweeps across the nation. The focal point itself is the large "150" at the centre; superimposed on the map, the "150" is as large as the nature of the celebrations commemorating the 150th anniversary of Confederation. Below it, the words "CANADA", "DOLLAR" and commemorative dates "1867-2017" are also engraved in Heritage Canada's official font for the occasion, alongside the CANADA 150 logo. Behind it all is Canada's national flag, rendered in laser frosting that gives it an ethereal feel—a fitting way to convey the swelling sense of pride and patriotism that, though unseen, can be found within Canadian hearts during this momentous year.
