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’s spend these days strengthening the ties that bind us together, creating meaningful connexions within our communities and rekindling our Canadian pride as we move forward on the road to reconciliation and a better future.
