Red, White and Maple Leaf! British Columbians Are Getting Into the Sesquicentennial Spirit

The Government of Canada supports Celebrate Canada festivities in communities across the country 

KELOWNA, BC, June 26, 2017 /CNW/ - Stephen Fuhr, Member of Parliament (Kelowna–Lake Country), today announced funding in support of Canada 150 Fund and Celebrate Canada celebrations across British Columbia. Mr. Fuhr made this announcement on behalf of the Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Canadian Heritage.

Thanks to this funding, local communities across British Columbia are taking part in celebrations such as National Aboriginal Day, Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day, Canadian Multiculturalism Day and Canada Day.

The Government of Canada has invested in more than 1,500 Canada-wide projects and activities as part of the Celebrate Canada program, which includes National Aboriginal Day, Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day, Canadian Multiculturalism Day and Canada Day, placing communities at the heart of Canada 150 celebrations.

Support of $1,519,313 through Celebrate Canada and the Canada 150 Fund was announced today (see attached backgrounder) for celebrations across British Columbia. Celebrate Canada festivities are an opportunity to highlight what makes communities across the country so unique, diverse and vibrant.

Quotes

"As we mark Canada 150, Celebrate Canada events are going to be more exciting than ever. This year's festivities will be an amazing opportunity for Canadians in British Columbia and across the country to celebrate Canada and our diversity. Join friends and family to take part in these celebrations during this important year!"

—The Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Canadian Heritage

"The Celebrate Canada period is a wonderful occasion for Canadians to reflect on the evolution of our country—from its Indigenous origins and the birth of our Francophone heritage to more recent waves of immigration—and celebrate the diverse and inclusive country we have built together. I look forward to participating in these local celebrations with all British Columbians!"

—Stephen Fuhr, Member of Parliament (Kelowna–Lake Country)

"Festivals Kelowna and our partners have been working on ideas to celebrate Canada 150 in Kelowna for close to two years. With the tremendous support of the Government of Canada, they have helped make these ideas come to life and ensure that our community can connect and celebrate in style, reaching people of all ages and interests. From community art projects, to public pianos, to live musical performances, Canada's cultural mosaic will be well represented and will come alive in our parks and public spaces."

—Renata Mills, Executive Director, Festival and Special Events Development Society of Kelowna

"The financial support from Canadian Heritage has empowered over thirty community partners to plan and organize RespectFEST 2017. Our goal is to celebrate respect and diversity in the North Okanagan by hosting a multicultural festival, educational activities, and art and history walks in September 2017. We couldn't be more excited or honoured to host this event."

—Annette Sharkey, Executive Director, Social Planning Council for the North Okanagan

Quick Facts

  • In honour of Canada 150, this year's special period of celebrations begins on June 21 and concludes with a major celebration for Canada Day on July 1. It will be the most spectacular celebration in Canadian history.
  • June 21 is National Aboriginal Day: a celebration of Indigenous culture and heritage. This date was chosen because it corresponds to the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, and because many Indigenous groups celebrate their culture and heritage at this time of year.
  • June 24, Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day, Fête nationale du Québec et de la Francophonie canadienne, marries the ancient rites surrounding the summer solstice—a period of light and hope—with the traditional celebration of the day of the patron saint of French Canadians.
  • June 27 was designated Canadian Multiculturalism Day on November 13, 2002. This day is an opportunity to appreciate the contributions of the various multicultural groups and communities to Canadian society.
  • On July 1, Canada Day, Canadians at home and abroad show their pride in their country's history, culture and accomplishments. This year, 19 urban centres across the country will celebrate Canada Day in a spectacular fashion: St. John's, Charlottetown, Halifax, Fredericton, Moncton, Québec City, Montréal, Ottawa–Gatineau, Toronto, Winnipeg, Regina, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, Victoria, Whitehorse, Yellowknife and Iqaluit.
  • A wide range of community projects, funded by the Canada 150 Fund, will also provide opportunities for Canadians to participate in celebrations in their communities. These projects will showcase the talent and expertise of our various communities, as well as the many facets of Canada's diversity.
