Canadian Facts and Trivia - THE PEOPLE AND THE HISTORY
With the launch of the Alouette 1 satellite in September 1962, Canada became the third nation in space, behind the Soviet Union and United States. The satellite was launched on Canada’s behalf by NASA.

Though the U.K. had its own satellite launched by NASA a few months before, that satellite was built in the U.S., while Canada’s Alouette 1 was designed and built in Canada.
