Greater Sudbury Celebrates CANADA 150
In 2017, Canada celebrates 150 years as a nation. During this historic year, Canadians from across the country will come together to honour our great country, its stunning landscapes, its ethnic diversity and its unique culture. Like those in communities across our nation, Sudburians too will celebrate! Exciting events and community celebrations will take place across Greater Sudbury all year long.
Sudbury is situated within traditional Ojibwe lands and is a bilingual city with the third largest Francophone population in Canada outside of Quebec. Together with people of many different ethnic backgrounds, including people of Italian, Finnish, Polish, Chinese, Greek and Ukrainian ancestry, Sudbury’s multilingual and multicultural fabric is one of the most diverse in Canada. And we love to celebrate!
