PLANS are underway to mark Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017 in the capital city, Ottawa. Holidaymakers are invited to join in the year-long celebrations.
The year will mark the anniversary of the 1867 British North America Act, which created the country called #Canada. The date became known as Dominion Day, and in 1982 its name was changed to Canada Day.
The 2017 celebrations are set to surpass anything that has come before.
Created by Ottawa Tourism and supported by a growing community of partners, the Ottawa 2017 Bureau s tasked with creating 12 full months of big, bold, and moving experiences that will complement national celebrations and annual events and festivals.
At the same time, legacy projects will be implemented to improve capital’s urban landscape and benefit local communities.
It is estimated that 1.75 million additional visitors will visit Ottawa in 2017 to take part in the celebrations and that more than C$218 million (£110 million) will be generated for the local economy.
