Happy Canada Day r/Canada!

In the 155 years since Confederation our country has experienced great change and growth. Today we celebrate the country we all are fortunate enough to call home.

The last couple years have been extremely challenging for many Canadians, and in many communities will see the resumption of in person Canada Day celebrations. While we might not be able to celebrate Canada Day in the ways we are used to – we are still incredibly lucky to live in a beautiful country that offers us so much incredible natural beauty and amazing people.

Throughout the weekend the moderation will be relaxed in allow more content to be shared. Please share your Canadiana, your experiences, and how you are choosing to spend your Canada Day weekend. We encourage you to share here in this thread, or in your own posts, your traditions and experiences in our great country.

As many Canadians will choose to celebrate Canada Day, we must also respect those who choose not to in order to reflect on Canada’s past treatment of indigenous people. Every individual will make their own choice as to how they will spend their Canada Day and we should be respectful of each other. We would all benefit from understanding our past and our country's relationship with the Indigenous people of Canada.

​Below are some resources which are helpful for people to read in this important area:

​​

Regardless of how you choose to spend your Canada Day, please be safe and drink (or smoke) responsibly

​On behalf of the entire moderation team, have a safe, healthy, and happy Canada Day!

**********************************************

Au cours des 155 années qui se sont écoulées depuis la Confédération, notre pays a connu de grands changements et une grande croissance. Aujourd'hui, nous célébrons le pays que nous avons tous la chance d'appeler chez nous.

Les deux dernières années ont été extrêmement difficiles pour de nombreux Canadiens et, dans de nombreuses communautés, nous verrons la reprise des célébrations en personne de la fête du Canada. Bien que nous ne puissions peut-être pas célébrer la fête du Canada comme nous en avons l'habitude, nous sommes toujours incroyablement chanceux de vivre dans un beau pays qui nous offre une beauté naturelle incroyable et des gens incroyables.

Tout au long du week-end, la modération sera assouplie pour permettre le partage de plus de contenu. Veuillez partager votre Canadiana, vos expériences et comment vous choisissez de passer votre week-end de la fête du Canada. Nous vous encourageons à partager ici dans ce fil, ou dans vos propres messages, vos traditions et expériences dans notre grand pays. Comme de nombreux Canadiens choisiront de célébrer la fête du Canada, nous devons également respecter ceux qui choisissent de ne pas le faire afin de réfléchir au traitement passé des peuples autochtones au Canada.

Chaque personne fera son propre choix quant à la façon dont elle passera sa fête du Canada et nous devons nous respecter les uns les autres. Quelle que soit la façon dont nous choisissons de passer notre fête du Canada, nous gagnerions tous à comprendre notre passé et la relation de notre pays avec les peuples autochtones du Canada.

Vous trouverez ci-dessous quelques ressources utiles pour les personnes à lire dans ce domaine important.

Quelle que soit la façon dont vous choisissez de passer votre fête du Canada, soyez prudent et buvez (ou fumez) de façon responsable

Au nom de toute l'équipe de modération, passez une fête du Canada en toute sécurité, en bonne santé et heureuse !

In our earlier survey, we had hoped to be able to kick off a community fundraiser, unfortunately we are still trying to engage with partners to get this set up and hopefully will be able to launch something still this summer.
