Celebrate Canada

The Celebrate Canada days highlight our ethnic, linguistic, cultural and regional diversity, which helps make Canada a truly inclusive and outward-looking country.

More than summer celebrations, they are opportunities to reflect on our values, our past and our future as a society.

Let us use these days to strengthen the ties that bind us together and to rekindle our Canadian pride as we move forward on the road to reconciliation and a better future.
