REGINA, SASKATCHEWAN--(Marketwired - April 17, 2014) - Department of Canadian Heritage
Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages Shelly Glover visited Regina today to meet with community and private-sector representatives of the Regina area for a roundtable discussion on how Canada should celebrate our 150th birthday in 2017. In addition, she invited all Canadians to complete the online questionnaire at Canada.ca/150.
- Since December 2013, the Government of Canada has held 20 roundtables across the country on the celebrations in 2017. Numerous people who are active in their communities and represent a wide range of organizations or groups were able to make their voices heard.
- So far, nearly 12,000 Canadians have completed the online questionnaire on Canada's 150th anniversary.
- The data collected will provide insight into the types of activities and projects that resonate most with Canadians and will help us plan the celebrations for this important anniversary.
- Over the next three years, as we approach the anniversary, we will celebrate key historic milestones that have helped define our country.
"Over the past number of months, Canadians from a variety of backgrounds and communities have told us how they would like to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday. I was pleased to meet today with community leaders from Regina and the surrounding area. The ideas they shared with me will be very helpful in making the celebrations a success and a source of pride for all Canadians."
-Shelly Glover, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages
