Canada 150: An Opportunity as Big as Canada

Canada is approaching 60 days away from Canada’s sesquicentennial anniversary as a country; 150 years since confederation!

In what is shaping up to be a coast-to-coast celebration of epic proportions, Canada 150 is sure to ignite the patriotism of every Canadian.  Groups of all sizes are gearing up to celebrate this year-long anniversary in their own unique ways; from corporate events to city-wide municipal activations.

CIBC Ottawa 2017 will deliver months of bold events, immersive experiences and all-out celebrations, events and attractions in Canada’s Capital. In addition to Signature Events, Ottawa will be animated by community celebrations organized at the local level across the city.  One of the highlights will be Inspiration Village: a hub that will be located in Ottawa’s historic ByWard Market.

Parks Canada is giving away free Discover Passes for 2017 – with them you will have unlimited opportunities to enjoy national parks, national marine conservation areas and national historic sites across the country!

Royal Bank has asked “How will you make 150 Count?”, by giving thousands of young Canadians $150, no strings attached, and asked them to do something within their own communities (#Make150Count).  This empowered young people to arrange youth soccer games, shoe giveaways and music concerts for seniors; all events that brought communities together with a feeling of giving back.

Regardless of how you choose to celebrate, be sure to commemorate the occasion with official Canada 150 cobranded merchandise that will not only showcase your national pride, but will also define what makes you, your town or organization, uniquely Canadian.

The Heritage Canada approved merchandise for the year’s festivities https://canada150product.ca/ will help your clients, partners and employees say “We were there. We were a part of Canada 150.”
