  • No Canada Day events are planned on Parliament Hill or in Major’s Hill Park this year. Everyone is encouraged to celebrate the holiday in their neighbourhood
  • Make Canada Day fun and safe for everyone by staying close to home and supporting your favourite local businesses. 
  • If you’re going out for a meal, make sure to include face masks, physical distancing and handwashing.
