Canada's 150th Anniversary in 2017

Heritage Canada has released funds to assist community projects that are participatory and contribute a sense of Canadian pride and celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017. These funds are for events that are new, inclusive, innovative and not intended for July 1 celebration.

The City will be assembling an organizing committee to facilitate in the community’s celebration of Canada’s 150th Anniversary. The City hosted a brain storming session on July 22 to determine what that “celebration” should encompass.

The City is currently seeking interest from individuals that would like to be considered for this committee. Contact Claire Halpern at 604.542.7580 or
