Statement by Minister Guilbeault on Canada Day celebrations

Statement

OTTAWA, April 17, 2020

In light of the current and ongoing COVID-19 pandemic in Canada and around the world, our government has decided to celebrate Canada Day differently this year, in a way that will allow us to come together virtually to share our pride in being Canadian.

Since the beginning of this crisis, Canadians have shown solidarity with one another. Every day, we witness the caring, generosity and resilience of people right across the country.

Together, we are meeting one of the greatest challenges in our history, and this year more than ever, Canada Day will highlight the strength that unites us.

For Canada Day 2020, we are working with Canadian artists and artisans to put together a virtual program, reflecting our diversity and values, and showcasing the immense talent our country has to offer.

On July 1, Canadians will be able to tune into virtual Canada Day celebrations.

More details will be announced soon.
