Canada Day

Canada Day

July 1 in Coquitlam included ways to participate in community spirit and reflect on Canada’s past, present and future. 

We acknowledge that we are on the ancestral lands of the Coast Salish Peoples, specifically, the shared traditional territories of the səl̓ilw̓ət (Tsleil-Waututh), sq̓əc̓iy̓aɁɬ təməxʷ (Katzie), xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and kʷikʷəƛ̓əm (Kwikwetlem) First Nations.

The City is encouraging residents  to reflect on the country’s complicated colonial history, and consider our nation's strengths as well as its flaws, as we strive collectively to learn from our past and do better in the future.
