The term dominion is commonly attributed to Psalms 72:8 and Zechariah 9:10 of the Bible: "He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth."
The candidates for the classification of this new Union were as follows, "the Kingdom of Canada" (le Royaume du Canada), "the Realm of Canada" (le Realme du Canada), "the Union of Canada" (l'Union du Canada), and "the Dominion of Canada" (le Dominion du Canada).
In any event, since 1967, the terms Dominion of Canada and Dominion are rarely used to distinguish the federal government from the provinces or, in historical works, to distinguish Canada (post 1867) from either the earlier Province of Canada or from the even earlier The Canadas.
