Yesterday, EC Montreal held a Birthday party for Canada! Canada is turning 150 years young on Saturday, July 1! It has been 150 years since confederation.
There are festivities all over Canada and Montreal is in party mode! There will be fireworks, concerts and other events at the Old Port and in neighborhood parks. EC Montreal is organizing a trip to our nation’s capital, Ottawa, where there will be amazing shows – including U2!
We decorated the student lounge with Canada flags and served foods Canada is known for; maple cookies, ketchup chips and yummy poutine!
We had the Canadian national anthem playing on the television with the lyrics displayed in both English and French. It was so great to hear our international students singing Oh Canada with such enthusiasm in both languages!
Happy Canada Day everyone!
