Canada Together at Canada Place

2022 marks the 36th annual event at Canada Place at the Port of Vancouver, which has historically been the largest Canada Day celebration outside Ottawa. This year also marks the beginning of a new direction for the event.

Now named Canada Together, the event has been planned collaboratively with representatives from the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations.

From programming to the name and theme itself, the details of the day were carefully considered to create a welcoming experience for all people who live in this country.

The theme this year is “Weaving together the fabric of a nation,” chosen to honour Canada’s diversity and set an intention for the day to gather, celebrate, learn, and share. Weaving is a common activity across many cultures and is a metaphor for the way the beauty, strength, and wisdom from the past can combine through multiple perspectives to create something meaningful for today and tomorrow.
