Canada Day in Surrey
Tuesday, June 30, 2015

On July 1, 1867 Canada became a new federation with its own constitution by signing the Constitution Act - formerly known as the British North America Act. Canada Day is a national statutory holiday celebrated in all provinces and territories and it is a day off for most businesses.

This year, the City of Surrey is set to welcome Canadian rock royalty, Blue Rodeo, to headline its annual Canada Day Celebration, presented by Coast Capital Savings, on July 1. This year’s celebration plans to be the largest Canada Day event in Western Canada with attendance expected to surpass 100,000 people.

“On Canada Day we all come together to celebrate our country, heritage and diversity and I am proud that Surrey’s Canada Day Celebration is among the largest in the country,” said Mayor Linda Hepner. “Each year we host a truly outstanding event that brings the community together that shows our national pride and celebrates our unique qualities as Canadians. I look forward to seeing everyone there.”
