Celebrating 2019 Canada Day

Community members all over Canada celebrated Canada Day with a high spirit of patriotism rooted in faith. In Edmonton the event kicked off with a flag hoisting ceremony coupled with the singing of the National Anthem in English, French and Arabic.

Community members attended the event dressed in a variety of Canadian themed patriotic apparel such as scarves, sweaters, socks and pins in an expression of love and gratitude for the country. A short social event followed with tea and snacks being served, allowing community members to engage in dialogue with guests and share their perspectives on what being a citizen of Canada means to them.
