Dominion Day

Dominion Day is the name given to 26 September, the anniversary of the day New Zealand was granted dominion status within the British Empire in 1907.

NB: Dominion status should not be confused with the virtually full independence granted in the Statute of Westminster Adoption Act 1947 of the New Zealand Parliament, nor the Constitution Act 1986.

Dominion Day is the former name of Canada Day, July 1.
