Canada Day is a national celebration day which takes place on July 1. It is a federal holiday that celebrates the anniversary of the Constitution Act, 1867, that classified the Provinces of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick into a single state called Canada. The festival is celebrated all across the country and by Canadians living abroad.
The holiday is often called Canada’s birthday and is an important milestone for the country. Here are all the activities people living in Oshawa can tap into:
