Canada didn't exist as a country when the US purchased Alaska in 1867. The US purchased Alaska from Russia for 7.2 million dollars.

Initially, the dispute existed between the UK and the Russian Empire. However, the United States purchased Alaska from the Russian Empire in 1867 thus inheriting the dispute with the UK. The final resolution clearly favored the US, which is why Alaska is part of the US today.Jun 12, 2019
