OTTAWA, June 15, 2020 /CNW/ – Today, the Honourable Steven Guilbeault, Minister of Canadian Heritage, unveiled the program for Canada Day. On July 1, Canadians from coast to coast to coast are invited to take part in an array of virtual celebrations to express our national pride.
This year more than ever, Canada Day is an important national celebration bringing Canadians together, even if it is done virtually.
It’s also time to commemorate some key events in our history, as this year marks the 40th anniversary of the official adoption of our national anthem, “O Canada,” and the essential role the Métis Nation played in Manitoba joining Confederation 150 years ago.
