Virtual Canada Day
June 25 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Mission, BC – The City of Mission is hosting a virtual Canada Day on July 1st, 2021 to bring the community together with family-fun activities and the opportunity to celebrate the rich cultural diversity found within the community.
Mission is committed to virtually sharing community spirit, entertainment, family activities, and the cultural practices of a variety of our community members on Canada Day. All of the online programming, pre-registration, and details can be found at missioncanadaday.ca.
This includes the opportunity to paint a maple leaf before Canada Day, register for a family swim, follow an interactive map that highlights locations across the community, and attend Zoom Canada/Mission Trivia and Music Bingo in the afternoon at 3.30 pm for kids and at 7.00 pm for the whole family.
Mayor Horn advised, “We are excited to offer a virtual Canada Day event to the people of Mission this year. We have spoken with leaders of the Leq’a:mel, Matsqui, and Sumas First Nations and we all agree that Canada Day is an opportunity for us to reflect on the lessons of our past, including recent events involving residential schools. Canada is an ever-evolving place and we all envision a country built on reconciliation. I would invite Mission to spend this year’s Canada Day thinking about how we can build a community that honours indigenous traditions, leadership, and values.”
Mission is proud to support local indigenous and cultural groups in our programming and planning of the event. A variety of activities are planned and will all be placed on the missioncanadaday.ca website on July 1.
The City of Mission acknowledges that it is situated within the unceded, ancestral and shared territory of the Sto:Lo people. Mission is situated on Matsqui, Sema:th, Kwantlen, Katzie, Sq’ewlets, and Leq’a:mel traditional territories.
These are just a few of the big things happening in Mission this year. You can also check out WhatsOn! Mission and the Tourism Mission websites for more information about the amazing things happening in our community.
