Canada 150, one last time! Closing Events

Modified schedule due to extreme cold weather

Given Environment Canada’s extreme cold warning and due to public health and safety concerns, please note that, as with the City of Ottawa outdoor programming, artistic programming for the Canada 150 closing events on Parliament Hill for December 30th and 31st has been modified.‎ Please check the Calendar of events for up to date information.

For additional information about the extreme cold warning, visit Environment Canada.

The presentation of Nimidiwin from 4 p.m to 5:30 p.m. at the Canadian Museum of History, the Christmas Lights Across Canada multimedia show and public skating on the Canada 150 Rink, including extended hours right through midnight on‎ December 31st, continue as planned. Also, pyrotechnics and a laser show will light up the sky at midnight on Parliament Hill. 

As previously announced, the Canada 150 hockey tournament taking place on the Canada 150 rink has been relocated and is underway at indoor locations. Reserved ice time for the tournament is now available for public skating.

With the weather, previously planned musical entertainers and evening DJs have been cancelled. 

We invite all Canadians and visitors to consider the extreme weather conditions and to dress warmly and prepare accordingly to prevent frostbite and other injuries.  

For public skating on Parliament Hill, it’s free of charge, but reservations are required.
