Canada's Birthday

Canada, a land of great natural beauty and beautiful, warm, welcoming people. On Canada Day, reach out to all your friends, family members and acquaintances and wish them a day filled with fun and laughter. Say Vive Le Canada!

Did you know that the name Canada derives from an Iroquoian word for "village," kanata, that French explorers heard used to refer to the area near present-day Quebec City. Today, Canada comprises ten provinces and three territories.
Wishing you and yours a very happy Canada Day!  Celebrate on July 1st.
