Statement by Minister Rodriguez on Canada Day

From: Canadian Heritage

Today is one of the best days of the year in Canada! On July 1, we unite to celebrate the 152nd anniversary of our Confederation. Canadians from across the country and around the world celebrate our history, achievements and the role we play in the world.

Canada Day presents the perfect opportunity to celebrate who we are: a diverse, bilingual, multicultural country that is the envy of the world.

We have so much of which to be proud! Canada is truly a reflection of the world. Our diversity is our strength and a tremendous source of pride. Our various cultural groups and communities have helped build a country that is open and inclusive, which that makes Canada a wonderful place to live.
