Canada turns 150 this year! And there is no shortage of ways to celebrate this exciting milestone. Outlined below are just a few of the ways in which proud Canadians can take part in the fun.
The ParticipACTION 150 Play List
Sign up for the Play List here, and check out the 150 listed activities (geocaching, knuckle hopping, tug-of-war and Pilates are just a few of the 150 activities). Then get active! Chip away at the list, track your activities online and get entered in for some fantastic prizes (the grand prize is a brand-new Chevrolet).
Get Out and About Locally…..
There are some fantastic festivities being planned in Alberta to commemorate Canada’s 150th, and several organizations have planned expansions and upgrades to coincide with Canada 150. The Passport 2017 app and website is a great way to stay in the know on upcoming events.
….And Also Make 2017 the Year you See More of Canada!
What better excuse to hit up a Canadian destination that you’ve never experienced before. With all the Canada 150 festivities in store, year-round, there is no need to head abroad. Experiences Canada, a Canada 150 project, will be giving Canada’s youth the opportunity to explore the country. Further details available here.
Get Your Nature Fix
For the whole year, Canadians and visitors can gain free access to all Parks Canada places, from coast-to-coast. And with Parks Canada hopping on the Canada 150 train, and planning activities galore in support of this celebration, 2017 promises to be a fantastic year to rekindle your love with the great outdoors.
And, of course, this year’s Canada Day festivities will be in fine form as Canadians band together to celebrate Canada’s sesquicentennial anniversary, so you’ll want to put on your party hat on July 1st!
