Happy Canada Day!

Canada Day will be a different experience in 2020. As we continue to practice social distancing, the usual public gatherings will not be held, but governments at the local and federal levels are planning all kinds of innovative and fun events to celebrate the day.

The Honourable Steven Guilbeault, Minister of Canadian Heritage, unveiled the program for Canada Day in mid-June. On July 1, Canadians from coast to coast to coast are invited to take part in an array of virtual celebrations to express our national pride.

“This year isn’t like other years. But even these challenging times are a good opportunity to think about what it means to be Canadian. I’m inviting you, whoever and wherever you are, to take part in all the great activities we have planned. Today Canada’s history — our values, our talents and our creativity — are on display for the whole world. Today is our day. Happy Canada Day!” – The Honourable Steven Guilbeault, Minister of Canadian Heritage

This year, more than ever, Canada Day is an important national holiday that brings Canadians together, even if the day is celebrated virtually.

Virtual Fireworks

Through the magic of technology, Canadian Heritage is hosting a virtual fireworks show on the evening of July 1. Presented by Tim Hortons, a web app will let you enjoy a new and memorable experience.
