Anniversaries of significance in Canada

Over the next few years, Canadians will be invited to celebrate more milestones of our history as well as outstanding figures from all backgrounds who have helped make our country so inclusive and open to the world.

Canadians are encouraged to celebrate anniversaries of historical significance for Canada. The Commemorate Canada program provides funding to initiatives that are specifically designed to commemorate and celebrate historical figures, places, events and accomplishments of national significance.

In a spirit of celebration of our cultural diversity, rich heritage, and history, we will celebrate important milestones such as the 100th anniversary of women obtaining the right to vote in federal elections, the 175th anniversary of the birth of Louis Riel and the 50th anniversary of the decriminalization of homosexuality.
