Well-wishes for Canada from the Dal community.

Two-thousand-seventeen is a milestone year for Canada, marking the 150th anniversary of Confederation. Events will be held across the country throughout the year as Canadians reflect on the past and look ahead at what’s to come.

In honour of Canada’s sesquicentennial, Communications and Marketing (in collaboration with Dal’s 200th anniversary planning committee) invited members of the Dalhousie community to weigh in: what does it mean to be Canadian? Who comes to mind? What does Canada taste like? What is Canada, to you?

Answers varied greatly, and with a desire to keep things to 150 words — one for each year since Confederation — it was impossible to include everything that makes our students, faculty, staff, alumni and others in our campus community proud to be Canadian. But there’s still an awful lot of love to go around.

Help celebrate the many people, places and things that define Canada by sharing the video online and telling the world what Canada means to you. Don’t forget to include the hashtags #MyCanadaIs and #Canada150.

Here’s to you, Canada!
