Celebrates Canada was a non-profit; non-partisan community organization
dedicated to the understanding and celebration of Canada's proud history and
richly diversified culture. This patriotic vision built momentum for the one
hundred and fiftieth anniversary of Canada's confederation by engaging the
community through educational programs, activities, events, exhibitions and
premier Canada Day celebrations that instils pride and commitment to Canada on
both an individual and community level.
Having received encouragement and standing from City of London Council on 31 August 2009, with nine founding members, then-titled Celebrate Canada (London Committee) held its inaugural meeting 24 September 2009, renamed London Celebrates Canada on 25 March 2010, and incorporated on 8 April 2010.
The volunteer Board of Directors included proud citizens with skills, influence or experience essential to the success of the organization.
Since incorporation, London Celebrates Canada held annual well-attended free-admission municipal-level Canada Day celebrations, a concert celebrating Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee, a multi-cultural forum and other community-input meetings, and numerous activities designed to promote nationalism and engage the public.
Having fulfilled its mandate, following Canada's sesquicentennial anniversary of confederation celebration, London Celebrates Canada stood down its business operations 31 August 2017.
