Happy Thanksgiving!


Thanksgiving weekend is a time for showing gratitude and I have a lot to be grateful for. I would like to wish all our CPC members and colleagues a very Happy Thanksgiving!

CPC is a social enterprise, and so I extend special thanks to all our members for participating so actively in our various events, programs, and forums.

As I reflect on our successes this year, I owe a great debt of gratitude to all of our very generous volunteers for contributing to CPC’s unprecedented growth. I personally extend my heartfelt thanks for being such a vital part of this community. Your expertise and guidance provide indispensable assets to CPC and your contributions are greatly appreciated. As a member-driven organization, we couldn’t do it without you!

With gratitude and wishing you much joy and many blessings this Thanksgiving! 

Your number one fan. Always.

Officially observed in Canada since November 6th, 1879, Thanksgiving Day (Jour de l’Action de grâce in French) is a national holiday celebrated as a day of giving thanks for the harvest and other blessings of the past year. 

The very first Thanksgiving celebration in Canada occurred in 1578 when English explorer Martin Frobisher and his crew gave thanks for their safe arrival in what was then known as Newfoundland (now Frobisher Bay, which is in present day Nunavut).

In Canada, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October. Learn more on Wikipedia.
