About Celebrate Canada days 2017

In this momentous year marking the 150th anniversary of Confederation, our Celebrate Canada festivities will be bigger than ever before!

These festivities will be the perfect opportunity to highlight the evolution of our country from its Indigenous origins (with National Aboriginal Day, a celebration of Indigenous culture and heritage, on June 21), contact with the French and the birth of our Francophone heritage (with Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day, Fête nationale du Québec et de la Francophonie canadienne), through to more recent waves of immigration that have led to the development of a diverse and inclusive society (with Canadian Multiculturalism Day on June 27).

These major celebrations will culminate with Canadians at home and abroad celebrating Canada Day (July 1).

Take advantage of the numerous celebrations being held in your community to discover and appreciate the wealth and diversity of Canadian society. In this memorable year, show your love of Canada and your pride in being Canadian!
