Celebrating Canada Day!

It’s Canada Day – July 1st!

Get your fireworks and sparklers ready to celebrate this very special day for Canada – it’s our birthday!

For those new to Canada, you will quickly learn that July 1st (a federal holiday) is a special day in our heritage where we celebrate uniting three separate colonies back in 1867 into one single Dominion under the British Empire called Canada.

Canadians typically celebrate this day outdoors with backyard BBQs with friends and family, parades, music concerts and of course fireworks! If this is your first July 1st in Canada, welcome and enjoy!! This is a very special day where we celebrate the wonderful country we are blessed to live in!
