"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.
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 Canada.ca/150.
Both the roundtable participants and Canadians who complete the online
questionnaire will be asked five key questions.

projects that resonate most with Canadians and will help us plan the
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."
