Wherever You Are


Events Description


On July 1, Canadians are invited to take part in virtual celebrations from coast to coast to coast.

The Government of Canada has decided to celebrate Canada Day in a different way this year so that we can come together virtually and express our pride in being Canadian.

Wherever you are across the country, you will be able to enjoy Canada Day midday and evening shows on Canadian Heritage’s social media sites, and on CBC and Radio-Canada, virtual interactive activities as well as online content especially crafted for Canada Day.

At all times, and especially on July 1, join the conversation on our social media platforms. Get the latest Canada Day news and take part in the fun activities that will be offered to you.

Like and share using the #CanadaDay and #OhCanada hashtags.
