The Government of Canada is celebrating Canada Day in a whole new way this year to bring us together virtually and share our pride in being Canadian. On July 1, Canadians are invited to take part in the virtual Canada Day celebrations.
The 2019 Canada Day Extravaganza’s primary goal is to bring together different cultural communities on our national holiday & allow everyone in attendance their full appreciation to Canada’s tremendous cultural, ethnic, linguistic and geographic diversity firsthand. Diversity is Canada’s strength. We're certain that with your collaboration, the FCAAQ’s Canada Day Extravaganza will be a delightful occasion for all to enjoy!
This initiative is made possible by the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, a collaboration between Canada’s community foundations, Foundation of Greater Montréal, the Government of Canada, and extraordinary leaders from coast to coast to coast.
