Canada Together at Canada Place 2024

2024 marks the 38th annual Canada Together at Canada Place at the Port of Vancouver which has historically been the largest Canada Day celebration outside Ottawa. 

Canada Together has been planned collaboratively with representatives from the Musqueam Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations. From programming to the name and theme itself the details of the day were carefully considered to create a welcoming experience for all people who live in this country.  

Once again the theme of the event will be “Weaving together the fabric of a nation” which honours Canada’s diversity and marks the day as one for gathering celebrating learning and sharing. Weaving is a common activity across many cultures and is a metaphor for the way the beauty strength and wisdom from the past can combine through multiple perspectives to create something meaningful for today and tomorrow.

The gathering will feature a day of festivities great food family fun and performances.
