Canadian Multiculturalism Day - Celebrate Canada days 2017

Canada 150

On November 13, 2002, the Government of Canada, by Royal Proclamation, designated June 27 of each year as Canadian Multiculturalism Day.

Canadian Multiculturalism Day is an opportunity to celebrate our diversity and our commitment to democracy, equality and mutual respect and to appreciate the contributions of the various multicultural groups and communities to Canadian society.

This year, to mark the 150th anniversary of Confederation, Canadian Multiculturalism Day will be even more spectacular! In addition to the many festivities set to take place in various communities from coast to coast, there will be major celebrations in three Canadian cities. Live performances showcasing well-known artists from various Canadian cultural communities are on the program.

Take part in the celebrations and discover the wealth of the many cultures that bring our country to life.
