Governance structures

Across the Government of Canada and within the Department of Canadian Heritage (PCH), the governance of the Canada 150 Initiative (“Canada 150”) was supported by existing and newly created governance committees and by clearly defined roles and responsibilities. This governance structure enabled sound management and established accountability for the pan-governmental reach of the Canada 150 initiative.

Within PCH, Canada 150 activities were supported by the Department’s existing governance structure and committees. These committees were engaged on an as-needed basis to support the oversight and coordination activities of Canada 150.

In support of the whole-of-government coordination, committees newly established to support the planning and implementation of Canada 150 at the federal level included: The Deputy Minister (DM) Coordinating Committee on Canada 150, the Assistant Deputy Ministers (ADM) Committee and Sub-Committees on Canada 150 and the Interdepartmental Communications Working Group. These committees met regularly to ensure interdepartmental coordination and oversight at the senior level, encourage strategic partnerships and collaboration across the Government of Canada and with other levels of government and stakeholders, ensure the proactive management of issues and opportunities, and make recommendations on the broader strategic directions of Canada 150. The Interdepartmental Communications Working Group brought together directors of communications from each of the federal institutions and served as a forum for ongoing sharing of information on Canada 150. Objectives of the working group were to leverage branding and communications opportunities to increase reach, share communications materials and information on Canada 150 plans and activities, and identify opportunities for cross-promotion. In addition, the working group encouraged a broad, pan-Canadian participative approach that engaged all sectors of Canadian society, including official language minority communities, youth, new Canadians and Indigenous Peoples.

Existing committees co-opted to support Canada 150 include the Federal Partners Committee, the Canada 150 Parliamentary Precinct Steering Committee, the Interdepartmental Commemorations Committee and the Network of Official Languages Champions. These committees supported sharing of information and coordination of activities between the Government of Canada and partners and stakeholders related to Canada 150. They also helped to identify concerns and potential issues as well as listed activities necessary to facilitate the advancement and implementation of Canada 150 initiatives. The Network of Official Languages Champions supported the Implementation of Section 41 of the Official Languages Act to mobilize federal institutions in promoting Canada’s linguistic duality and the development of Official Languages Minority Communities through Canada 150.

Description of the horizontal initiative

In 2017, the Government of Canada marked the 150th anniversary of Confederation with a year-long celebration from coast to coast to coast.

Canada 150 supported the renewal of community infrastructure as well as a broad range of events and activities that highlighted Canada as an inclusive and diverse society, efforts towards reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians, engaging youth and reaffirming the importance of strong environmental stewardship.

Canada 150 activities supported three of the Government of Canada’s priorities: “Diversity is Canada’s strength”, “A clean environment and a strong economy”, and “Growth for the middle class”.

As a horizontal initiative, Canada 150 achieved the following shared outcome: “Canadians are engaged in vibrant communities, have a sense of pride and attachment to Canada and to local communities, and benefit from economic impacts and lasting legacies”. To achieve this outcome, the Government of Canada invested $610,346,286 in incremental funding using three instruments: the Canada 150 Fund, the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program and through Parks Canada. As a pan-governmental initiative, federal institutions also implemented projects and activities using their existing reference levels to enhance the reach and scope of the initiative.

Canadians across the country had the opportunity to mark the sesquicentennial through a wide range of national and local community events and initiatives designed and selected to enhance Canadians’ sense of belonging, pride and appreciation of diversity.

As the lead department of the horizontal initiative, PCH was responsible for coordinating the activities of Canada 150 for the Government of Canada and for engaging federal institutions, different levels of government and the private and not-for-profit sectors. PCH houses the Canada 150 Federal Secretariat - the main coordinating body for Canada 150 Initiative - and administered the Canada 150 Fund, the grants and contributions program that brought Canadians together in 2017 through projects in the areas of culture, arts, sport, innovation, heritage and environmental awareness.

The Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program was managed by the six (6) Regional Development Agencies. This program directly supported Canadian communities in modernizing their recreational, cultural and community infrastructure and maintain local jobs.

Through their free Discovery Pass program and associated enhancements to visitor experiences, the Parks Canada Agency encouraged Canadians to further explore their country and their national parks in 2017.

Projects by all other participating federal institutions showcased Canada and the past and current achievements of Canadians. These projects were created, developed, funded and delivered by each institution according to their respective mandates and reference levels.

Canada 150 projects were included in public reporting using the following criteria:

  • New projects using operational funds;
  • Incremental funding (obtained through a Treasure Board Submission) allocated specifically for the Canada 150 Initiative;
  • New projects implemented by your federal institution, using existing Transfer Payment Program;
  • Enhanced recurring projects using existing funding specifically for Canada 150; and
  • Canada 150 Legacy projects that will leave lasting legacies.

Additionally, a number of federal departments delivered projects not specifically designed for Canada 150 which commenced or took place in 2017 and used the Canada 150 logo. These projects contributed to the breadth and diversity of Canada 150, however, they are not included in public reporting because they fall under one of the following categories:

  • 2017 Legacy projects that were announced or completed in 2017 and will leave lasting legacies but were not designed specifically for Canada 150;
  • Supporting Roles that were in-kind contributions to other Canada 150 or Supplementary Projects (ex. hosting, promotion); and
  • Branding projects that did not fit into another category but used the Canada 150 logo, brand or visual identity in a public-facing way.

Canada 150’s unique and innovative projects sought to spark the national imagination, bring Canadians together, contribute to building diverse and inclusive communities, showcase Canadian achievements, and inspire Canadians to learn about and explore their country.
