A travelling exhibition developed by the Canadian Museum of History
This lively exhibition helps children discover the importance and diversity of celebrations in Canada. It provides them with a stimulating exploration of the celebrations that bring families together, and gives children a sense of belonging and caring for others. Visitors can explore 12 celebrations through the seasons – from large groups of people gathering for a day of festivities, to special moments in children’s everyday lives. The associated activities provide young visitors with opportunities to be creative, solve problems, and take on new roles.
CANADA: DAY 1
April 28 – September 02, 2018

Immigration has played a significant role in the building of Canada, shaping Canadian culture, economy and way of life. That first day of physical arrival to Canada is a symbolic, personal and official milestone in the process of becoming Canadian. Canada: Day 1 aims to explore the multifaceted experiences of newcomers on their first day of arrival in Canada spanning from confederation to present day, as well as the similarities and diversities of these experiences.
