Another Canada Day is virtually right around the corner

What are we celebrating anyway?

Canada Day celebrates the birthday of Canada. On July 1, 1867 Canada became a new federation with its own constitution by signing the Constitution Act – formerly known as the British North America Act.

This year we should take a moment to appreciate our country and the unity and strength we have shown during the COVID-19 pandemic. While there have been serious social and economic costs, our adherence to the restrictions put in place have made a difference. Let’s keep it going…

Happy Birthday Canada!

Celebrate Canada Day 2015

It’s hard to believe that Canada Day is this coming Wednesday July 1, virtually right around the corner!

Since it falls on a Wednesday this year, it means you’ll have to take two days off
(Mon & Tues or Thurs & Fri) to make Canada Day a long weekend. But hey, a 5 day weekend sounds pretty good right about now, right?! Especially given the beautiful weather forecast for the week ; )
