Come celebrate Canada Day 2016 in the Old Port of Montreal.

This year, we will gather to commemorate the 175th anniversary of Sir Wilfrid Laurier's birthday, the 175th anniversary of the election of Robert Baldwin and Louis-Hyppolite La Fontaine, the 150th birthday of the first Fenian invasion, and the 100th anniversary of the women's suffrage.

There will be a host of free activities that will appeal to the whole family!
