Happy Canada Day! Celebrate our 150th birthday all summer long!

We want to wish everyone a Happy Canada Day!


This year is extra special as it's our 150th birthday! We want to help you celebrate all summer long in true Canadian fashion with our Great Canadian Summer Bucket List!

 

With Glowing Hearts, we … EAT!

Canadians produce the most maple syrup in the world, but did you know that Ketchup flavored chips and chocolate bars like Coffee Crisp and Caramilk are only available in Canada? It's True! Canadians are also responsible for inventing Nanaimo bars, butter tarts, beavertails, and poutine.

Cupid's Gourmet Bakery is serving delicious freshly made Nanaimo bars, butter tarts, maple leaf cookies, and more!

Beavertails have a brand-new Nanaimo bar flavor to celebrate Canada's 150! Find a location near you.

Dig into our unofficial National Dish at Smoke's Poutinerie in Port Credit or Poutine Dare to be Fresh in Brampton.

 

Explore … Our Home and Native land!

Canada has more lakes than any other country, so take this summer to explore them! Head to a cottage for the weekend or order your free Parks Canada Discovery Pass and visit our national parks and historical sites for free!

Locally, Bronte Creek Provincial Park is the perfect place to camp, fish, and enjoy nature, but if you can, take a road-trip to one of these great parks:

Algonquin Park

Kelso Park

Long Point Provincial Park

Port Burwell Provincial Park

 

Celebrate … The True North Strong and Free!

Throw a Canada Day party or join the City of Oakville in celebrating at Bronte Heritage Waterfront Park. This free event is packed with fun starting with a farmers' market at 10am and concluding with a stunning firework display over Lake Ontario!

Throwing your own party? Consider these great recipes:

Great Canadian Potato Salad

Maple Meatballs

Canada Flag Cake

Canada Day Fruit Kabobs

Canada Day Cocktails

 

True Patriot Love in all thy … FUN!

Canadians love to play, in fact, we invented some great games including Five Pin Bowling, Lacrosse, and Trivia Pursuit!

Try them out for yourself!

Play 5-pin bowling at Hopedale Bowl located in the South Oakville Centre

Watch a Lacrosse game at the Glen Abbey Recreation Centre, or join the Oakville Minor Lacrosse Association house league.

House of Cards Board Game Café is a great place to enjoy Canadian made board games.

Head to Cineplex Cinemas Winston Churchill and see a movie in the IMAX theatre.

 

Happy Canada Day!
