Find out where to celebrate Canada’s 150 in your area!


I’m thrilled to join all Canadians in celebrating the best country in the world on its 150th birthday! For all Canadians, Canada Day is a much-anticipated national holiday, and a welcomed opportunity for barbecuing, picnicking with friends and family, or even watching a fireworks display.

I encourage everyone to please join me at one of the many celebrations going on in our community to commemorate this very special birthday for Canada.

On behalf of Canada’s Official Opposition, Happy Canada Day!
