  Introduction

We celebrate wide ranging events, some dating back to antiquity. Events range from Victories over our foes, New Years, Valentines Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter (the Resurrection of our Saviour), Mother's Day, Victoria Day, Father's Day, Canada Day (the birth of our nation), Thanksgiving, St-Jean-Baptiste Day (Quebec), Remembrance Day, Christmas (the birth of our Saviour); all the way to personal events like Birthdays, Graduations and Anniversaries and even Groundhog Day.
If you take a closer look, you will find Canadians virtually always have something to celebrate. Canadians are just naturally happy people.
A good reference for Canadian Holidays Celebrations Ceremonies and Heritage.

Half-Masting the National Flag

Half-Masting the Flag Half-Masting the Flag

Objectives

The half-masting of national flags is a well-established procedure whereby countries bestow an honour and express a collective sense of sorrow. Given that such flags are recognized as paramount symbols of their nations, the act of half-masting is a dramatic visual statement that speaks to the sense of loss that is shared by all their citizens. It is in this context that the Government of Canada wishes to further develop the principles that will determine the half-masting policy relative to the National Flag of Canada as well as the precise arrangements to be put in place and exercised in a consistent and appropriate manner. Therefore, the Government of Canada has adopted the following rules.

Special Days

The Flag will be Half-masted on all federal buildings and establishments in Canada, including the Peace Tower, from sunrise to sunset on the following days:

  • April 28, Day of Mourning for Persons Killed or Injured in the Workplace (Workers' Mourning Day);
  • June 23, National Day of Remembrance for Victims of Terrorism;
  • Last Sunday in September, Police and Peace Officers' National Memorial Day, unless Half-masting occurs near the place where a memorial is being observed, then Half-masting can occur according to the prescribed order of service, until sunset;
  • November 11, Remembrance Day, unless Half-masting occurs at the National War Memorial or a place where remembrance is being observed, then Half-masting can occur at 11:00 or according to the prescribed order of service, until sunset;
  • December 6, National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.

    In addition, the Flag will be Half-masted on the Peace Tower:

  • from sunrise to sunset on April 9, Vimy Ridge Day; and
  • for the duration of the annual Memorial Service on Parliament Hill to remember deceased Parliamentarians.

Bicentennial of Sir John A. Macdonald's birth

Sir John A. Macdonald

As one of the Fathers of Confederation and Canada's first Prime Minister, Sir John A. Macdonald's (born January 11, 1815) role in shaping Canada's history is unparalleled. He was instrumental, with the assistance of Sir George-Étienne Cartier, in expanding Canada to the Pacific Ocean.
During his years as Prime Minister, Canada experienced rapid growth and prosperity. Manitoba, British Columbia and Prince Edward Island joined Confederation, while the last spike of the Canadian Pacific Railway's transcontinental line was driven into the ground. He also created the North West Mounted Police, the precursor to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
