Canada’s 150th birthday year is almost upon us!

Are you ready to celebrate?

Here in Ottawa, things are ramping up with all kinds of exciting events planned to celebrate #Canada150.

Of course, Canada’s Capital is starting off 2017 with a bang on New Year’s Eve, with a huge family friendly celebration on Parliament Hill that will include some extra-special surprises!

OH CANADA! It's our 150th Birthday in 2017! From #FarAndWide WE are #CANADIAN! Click To Tweet

I’m feeling pretty lucky to be living in Canada’s Capital at such an exciting time in Canada’s history. I can’t wait to watch the next year unfold, and hopefully take part in many of the celebrations!

That’s why I recently created a post that highlights where you can find Canada 150 information for all the great events and initiatives happening right across Canada in 2017.

No matter the problems we may have here in Canada, we live in one of the best countries in the world. We are lucky to live here, and to be able to call ourselves Canadians.

So, wherever you may live in Canada, make sure you get out to celebrate! There’s no better time than in 2017!

If you haven’t checked it out yet, you really need to look at all the fab Ottawa 2017 merchandise available from ROOTS Canada (the official clothing sponsor of Ottawa 2017). If you’ve ever owned some ROOTS clothing you will know that the quality is second to none. At least that is our experience. I love their clothing!

I also love the Ottawa 2017 logo. The colours just pop!

So I couldn’t resist. I decided to spend my birthday money from my dad and get myself one of these beauties:

Ottawa 2017 Official ROOTS Merchandise

If you are wondering, yes, I did in fact order the men’s sweatshirt for myself. I just happen to like the blue version more, so I ordered mine in a man’s small – and it fits me perfectly.

AND… just today, I went back to check on the merchandise and see that they now have a gorgeous Ottawa 2017 ROOTS jacket and Banff bag. I may have to talk to Santa about those!!

I love the Ottawa 2017 merchandise so much that, I just have to share a little of my Ottawa pride with you!

    I won’t be able to be in Ottawa but I am thankful for our health care system that is free. Most of the nurses and drs I work with are phenomenal.
    Thank you

    Ottawa is a fantastic place, and no doubt will host an event befitting of 150 year celebration!

    There are so many things, it’s hard to pick one, I feel like I’m not patriotic if one of our teams are in a playoff game and I don’t watch it. I’m proud we are a welcoming country and have acceptance of others. I’m proud that we have great people.

    I just might take a trip to Ottawa in this big year…what makes me proud to be a Canadian is how kind and inclusive we are – we help other people not because we get anything out of it, but because it’s the right thing to do! Plus our country is so beautiful and diverse.

    No plans yet to visit Ottawa, but it’s a great idea! I am proud to be Canadian when I walk the clean, nature trails, when I breathe the clean air and see the sun in our blue sky, when I am able to attend the church of my choice without government interference.

    I am from the west coast so will not be attending any celebrations in Ottawa but the choir I belong to will joining in the celebrations out here on the west coast.

    I’m already in Ottawa it’s my home town and oh yes I’m surely attending the events this year. What I love about canada is our freedom, healthcare, Beavertails, skating on the longest skating rink or walk it and it’s such a beautiful country to live.

    I was hoping to get there, but then just saw that the Big Nickel in Sudbury is having a big thing so we may go and visit family there for that . So much fun stuff to do we will have to see . Would love to go to Ottawa though for at least one part of the festivities .

  15. December 20, 2016


    I live in Ottawa and am sooooo pumped for next year! I plan on going or volunteering at as many of the events as I can! 😀
