St. John's not recognizing Canada Day


St. John's will not be recognizing Canada Day this year. There will be no in-person events or a firework display.


Residents are asked to take time to reflect and to acknowledge the importance of working together to build a stronger Canada.


There will be a Memorial Day Ceremony at 11 am.


Local organizations with diverse backgrounds will ‘leave their mark’ on Canada Day through several hand-painted benches. Each bench is designed to welcome newcomers and visitors to the City. The benches will be displayed in the green space at the corner of Prescott Street and Duckworth Street from July 1 to 5, and later distributed throughout downtown.
