Canada Day

Thursday, July 1, 2021

Canada Day in Burnaby is normally a time for big celebrations. But given the complex events of this year affecting many communities, it is important for us all to take a step back and reflect on what it means to be Canadian. In the spirit of Truth & Reconciliation, we encourage everyone to listen and learn about their identities and histories.

If you’re not sure where to start, the City of Burnaby has made a number of short videos available to the public through the Heritage Burnaby website. These resources will help residents better appreciate the history and ongoing injustices Indigenous people face. You can find a full list of the videos here.

This Canada Day, let us all think about the actions we can take as individuals to make our country more equitable and welcoming to all.
