This year, marking the 150th anniversary of Confederation, Canada Day celebrations will be bigger than ever. There will be major celebrations in 19 Canadian cities in addition to the many festivities set to take place in various communities from coast to coast. A full weekend of activities is also on the agenda in Canada’s Capital Region to celebrate Canada Day and country’s anniversary in a spectacular way.
For the Canada 150 Celebration, immigrants who are now equal part of Canada, visit different places as a tribute to their new home. Some go to Ottawa to celebrate with their family in front of the Parliament building, where many Canadians have been working and fighting to give people the right of being a Canadian citizen. Some plan on visiting the Alberta Legislature Building, and adventurous ones go on road trip out east, exploring Canada’s East Coast before capping it off with a big Canada Day celebration in Halifax.
