There is a Newfoundland secessionist movement. While not too serious, it enjoyed quite a revival with the Atlantic Accord dispute in 2004 between Newfoundland & Labrador and Paul Martin. Much of the movement has strong support on the Avalon Peninsula, the region where St. John's is. Other than that, I'm not sure. It would be a good idea to include it on this page. Justin Bathurst.

I added a small part about the secessionist movement but I think it needs to be expanded greatly Canking 00:22, 9 December 2006 (UTC)[]

It may also be worth mentioning the partitioning of Quebec debate, i.e. the claim of some anglophone and First Nations (who held votes on the matter) residents of Quebec that some areas where they form the majority would be entitled to remain within Canada if Quebec seceded. -Nick

Louis Riel[edit]

I'm not sure the "Red River Rebellion" was secessionist since it's not clear that it was part of Canada at the time. Dan Carkner 16:02, 6 March 2007 (UTC)[]

Just wondering[edit]

Well, this article deals with all kinds of independence movements by francophones and even anglophones who just feel Ottawa sucks. But aren't there any First Nation secession movements? Is there, for example, no group that seeks independence for Nunavut, or greater autonomy for the Crees? Steinbach (fka Caesarion) 16:15, 1 February 2008 (UTC)[]

People from Quebec are called...?[edit]

This article says Quebecians? Is that correct? Ehccheehcche (talk) 01:16, 27 May 2008 (UTC)[]

Humorous movements[edit]

Listing the Rathnelly and Quebec "Kingdom" movements in a serious way harms the thesis of this article. They're jokes, publicity stunts, nothing serious about them. For this reason I put them into an "In popular culture" section. 23skidoo (talk) 20:07, 26 September 2008 (UTC)[]

The Collaspe of Canada?[edit]

I don;t have the book with me to do a proper citation, but in the book, it pretty much says the following statement on Nova Scotia:

In 1990, just before the failure of the Meech Lake Accord, then-premier John Buchanan predicted Nova Scotia would end up as part of the United States if the accord failed.[citation needed]

If anyone has the book in their posestion, and knows how to use wiki's cite system, please do so. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:52, 18 March 2011 (UTC)[]

first nation, metis or inuit[edit]

Are there first nation, metis or inuit secessionist movements in Canada?--Kaiyr (talk) 13:17, 11 August 2011 (UTC)[]

How about secession from the British Empire?[edit]

Were there movements for secession of Canada from the British empire while it was still a part of that? If so, shouldn't they be described here too? -- (talk) 11:45, 25 August 2012 (UTC)[]

Does Not include the numerous first-nations independence movements[edit]

This greatly glosses over the various First-Nations communities that seek independence and the various "land-back" movements. It also ignores various recent separatist movements that are in recent memory and still being desired by their communities, such as with the OKA Crisis and continued fight for independence, or the Anishinaabe nation, or the recent 2020 Canadian pipeline and railway protests for the independence of the Wetʼsuwetʼen nation. 10:07 a.m. Saturday, November 21, 2020 (UTC)

Response to first nation, metis or inuit[edit]

Yes, I can confirm as a first-nation myself, many first-nations communities have been desiring separatism, typical examples, in Canada would be the Haudanoshonee, (The Mohawk Warrior Society), The Anishinaabe Nation, Blackfoot, Cree, The Various West Coast Nations. Etc. Perhaps adding a new minor sub-category talking about how various "land back movements" could be argued to be seen as separatist movements.
