Canada Day – July 1st

While Canada Day continues to be a major celebration across the country, it’s also important to remember that the story of this land didn’t begin in 1867 – It extends back thousands upon thousands of years.

As well as a day to celebrate, it’s also a day to learn, to reflect and to look to the future and see how we can continue to make things better.
