Come celebrate Canada Day 2015 in the Old Port of Montreal.

This year, we will gather to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Canadian Flag, as well as the 70th Anniversary of the end of the Second World War. There will be a host of free activities that will appeal to the whole family!

This event is also made possible thanks to the financial help of the Ministry of Canadian Heritage.
