Canada Day is a national day of Canada; a statutory holiday. The purpose of the celebration of Canada day and flag-raising is to commemorate the anniversary of Canadian confederation which occurred in July 1st 1867 with the passing of the constitution Act 1867 where the three separate colonies of Canada, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick were united into a single dominion within the British Empire called Canada.
The ceremony is marked annually to celebrate Canada globally.
Every year, the organizers of the event choose one country where the event will take place and this year they have chosen Ghana to be the venue for the ceremony.
It will come off on Thursday, 1 July and interestingly 1st July is Ghana’s republic day. Thus two holidays in one day.
Ghana is chosen because the day is so significant to Ghana as it is to Canada.
To Canadians, it is an independence day or better still a unification day and to Ghanaians it is a day when the people got their total liberation from colonialism.
The event is organized and funded by Global Celebrations Canada and it is open to everybody for free regardless of their nationality.
As part of the ceremony, there will be trips to Elimiana and Kakum national park. Afterwards, there will be an end celebration at Luna. The company, Global Celebration Canada will bear the cost of the transportation fee and the cost of all drinks that will be shared at the event. However, participants will have to provide their own food.
Interested persons should converge in Quashima PMC where we shall embark on the trips by 5:30 am sharp for their T-shirts which is the dress code for the occasion or they can wear red and white shirts as substitutes.
By immersing oneself in the occasion, one can make new friends and become members of Global Celebrations Canada and gets more benefits as a member of the organization.
Come let us celebrate and raise the flag of Canada high as well as the flag of Ghana.
Come let us celebrate the two countries in one day.
Come let us make new friends.
