"Have Your Say" about the celebrations in 2017

WINNIPEG, Jan. 20, 2014 /CNW/ - Shelly Glover, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages, conducted consultations in Winnipeg today to seek Canadians' views on how they would like to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation.

Quick Facts

  • The Government of Canada is holding roundtables this winter with individuals who are active in their communities and represent a wide range of organizations or groups from across the country.
  • In addition to the roundtables, Canadians are invited to have their say by completing an online questionnaire at
  • Both the roundtable participants and Canadians who complete the online questionnaire will be asked five key questions.
  • The data collected will provide insight into the types of activities and projects that resonate most with Canadians and will help us plan the celebrations.
  • Over the next three years, as we approach the anniversary, we will celebrate key historic milestones that have defined our country.

"As we shape plans for Canada's 150th anniversary, I encourage my fellow Manitobans to let our Government know how they want to celebrate Canada's history, values and traditions. We are fortunate to call Canada home, and we have an opportunity to celebrate, together, who we are as Canadians, where we come from, and why our country is the greatest in the world."
