Canada 150 Heritage Rivers
Canada 150 celebrations present an incredible opportunity to build a sense of pride and attachment to Canada through events and recreational activities on and along Canadian Heritage Rivers. These events and activities will celebrate our rivers and their importance to Indigenous Peoples, our communities, our industries and the economy, our history and the environment.
These activities and events allow Canadians from all walks of life to enjoy and learn about their local rivers, highlight the importance of rivers as a precious freshwater resource, and build support for their stewardship into the future. They will foster a sense of pride in our nation, grow pride of place both locally and nationally, and build capacity for river communities to work together and share resources in the future.
