How Annex and Manifest Destiny affected Canada
Confederation
In 1867, the Dominion of Canada was created. The provinces of the Dominion of Canada were Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. To the south is the U.S.A who wanted to control the entire North American continent. They called that the Manifest Destiny.
1870-1871
In 1870, Manitoba joined Canada and in 1871, British Columbia joins Canada. They join because Canada is concerned that the U.S.A. will annex the North West Territories. They joined Canada because they didn't want to be invaded by the U.S.A., who was following their Manifest destiny.
1876
In 1876, the District of Keewatin was created by Canada. Its primary reason was to give a government to the land north of Manitoba and west of Ontario. They did that because then the two provinces could expand into developed land.
1889
The disputed lands between Manitoba and Ontario were finalized.
1898
In 1898, the Yukon Territory was created because of the Klondike Gold Rush and Canada thought the U.S.A was going to annex the Yukon Territory because of its gold.
1905
In 1905, the Provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan joined Canada. All of the borders to the United States were secure and there is no major threat of American annexation of Canada.

before 1867
Before Confederation
The history of the U.S.A. is very important. It explains why the U.S.A. wanted to either invade or annex current Canadian land. In 1776, the U.S.A. was created. In 1803, the U.S.A. bought Louisiana. In 1819, they got Florida, in 1845, they annexed Texas, in 1846, they got the Oregon Territory, in 1848, they got California and in 1853, the U.S.A. purchased land from Mexico. Finally in 1867, the U.S.A. purchased Alaska. They had nowhere to go after that except north. And in the north, there was a lot of empty land.
