Anniversaries of significance in Canada

Each year, the Government of Canada recognizes anniversaries of national significance to promote knowledge and understanding for all.

These anniversaries remind us to reflect on our history, our heritage and our shared accomplishments and to think about the country of tomorrow, what we want to be and what we want to achieve together.

These are some of the people and events that have shaped Canada’s rich history and diverse communities of today.
