Canada Day is right around the corner and we are all ready to relax a bit. What do you have planned to celebrate Canada Day This Year?

It’s been an unprecedented year, and more than ever, Canada Day will bring Canadians together, but now virtually. While parades and big parties have been cancelled, you can still find amazing events online and get connected with family and friends.

At 7 p.m., residents are invited to stand in their yards or balconies to join a community-wide singalong of O Canada, after cheering healthcare workers.
