“Although we can’t gather together in person for the event this year, I want to wish everyone a very Happy Canada Day!” said Mayor Bill Mauro. “I encourage everyone to participate in the many activities that will be shared online leading up to the big day.”

"The pandemic is forcing us to get creative; it's essential to engage the community and look for creative ways to celebrate safely; online programming will allow us to do this," said Louisa Costanzo, Supervisor of Cultural Development & Events. "We have planned a variety of virtual activities to celebrate a unique Canada Day."

The three days of activities range from a multi-municipal NHL20 online tournament to cupcake decorating, a virtual scavenger, and much more. The celebration will end on July 1, 2020, with a virtual concert starting at 7 pm. Performances by the Thunder Bay World Dance Collective, Martin Blanchet, Jean-Paul De Roover and Almost Abba, with surprise video messages and much more. It will be a great show, one not to miss!
