Best of Canada

  The countdown is on for Canada’s sesquicentennial! On July 1, 2017, Canada will celebrate 150 years since Confederation - when three colonies got together to form one united maple-syrup-hockey-and-poutine-loving country. From coast to coast, Canadians are going all-out with special themed events, activities and cultural exhibits. The country’s capital city of Ottawa is the focus of the birthday hoopla, with 12 full months of events. Check out our Best of Canada section for places to visit, things to do and where to have fun in Canada.
