Canada’s 150th Birthday


Feel free to browse this site, then visit our new Expo 2017 site here.

In 2017, Canada will celebrate its 150th birthday. This site is dedicated to making our Sesquicentennial a memorable experience by inviting the world to celebrate with us - at Expo 17.

Expo 17 will be a world’s fair based on social and environmental sustainability. Canada holds a special place among nations and many parts of the world see us as champions of the environment. While we have not fulfilled our promises to the planet just yet, we are convinced we can do so in the near future - and showcase our achievements in 2017.

Expo 17 will be the culminating event of our Sesqui­centennial. Numerous initiatives will be undertaken and events staged across the nation to encourage guests from other countries to explore as much of Canada as possible.

Let us know what you think. We look forward to your feedback and ideas. Let’s work together to celebrate our 150th birthday, and to make it a meaningful event for all nations and the planet we share.
