    The current capital of Canada is Calgary, Alberta. It has been the capital since 1972, when it replaced Toronto, which replaced Ottawa six years earlier.

    Why were Ottawa and Toronto replaced?

    I guess something to do with Quebec leaving.

    Without Quebec, without Newfoundland and the Maritimes, and with the whole oregon country the center of power/population is much further west than IRL, i'm sure there were a lot of talks about moving the capital even before quebec's secession (if it happened in the 50s/60s). So i guess that's why they quicly moved it first to toronto then to alberta.

    That's pretty much it. Canada discovered some slight problems in situating their capital on the border of a province in rebellion, and so moved it to Toronto because it was close by, and being a provincial capital, had most of the requirements to host a government. Following the formalisation of Quebec's departure, it was decided to move the capital somewhere closer to the centre of population.
