Abstract

This article analyzes the state of social and political thought of the Dominion of Canada in the last third of the 19th century in the context of ideological debates between conservative British imperialism proponents and liberal pro-American continentalism supporters. The research reveals the positive role of both ideological trends in the process of consolidating the Canadian society through the national identity construction and its self-determination in the system of international relations by the beginning of the 20th century.

Key words: national identity, the Dominion of Canada, British imperialism, continentalism, Goldwin Smith
