Flash Mob, Canada Day

There are many reasons to be proud to be Canadian and on July 1, we will pass an incredible milestone in our country’s history, Canada’s 150th birthday! This year, the Canadian spirit will emanate from Waterfront Park with thousands putting on their best red and white to join in the celebration, hosted by The Rotary Club of Lions Gate.

The Rotary Club’s been hosting this event for 29 years running, and have been a vital part of celebrating many historic moments: BC’s 150th birthday in 2008, Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012, the 50th anniversary of the Canadian Flag in 2015 and the 100th anniversary of women’s first right to vote in Canada in 2016.
