In 2017, Vancouver will stage a once-in-a-lifetime project to commemorate Canada's 150th anniversary.
To mark Canada 150+, we'll celebrate, learn, and connect through an array of cultural activities, the large-scale events and activities, including:
Vancouverites will have opportunities to engage in vibrant, interactive programming of traditional and contemporary Indigenous performance, arts and crafts, culture, fashion, feasts, music, and multi-media.
Together, we will reflect on our shared history and inspire all Canadians to re-imagine Canada's next 150 years.
Strengthening our Relations: Canada 150+ will reflect the living cultures of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations, Urban Aboriginal, and Métis communities, settlers, and newcomers.
More information will be announced this December.
