Broadcast on CHEK TV
and Streamed Online
With COVID-19 preventing large-group gatherings this summer, Victoria invites the community to gather virtually this year to celebrate Canada’s 153rd birthday.
Victoria’s Canada Day, an initiative of the City of Victoria presented in partnership with Canadian Heritage, will feature an impressive line-up of diverse, multicultural performances broadcast on CHEK, and streamed on the City’s website and a range of online platforms on July 1 at 7 p.m.
The virtual celebration will feature music and performances by local groups, including the Lekwungen Traditional Dancers, as well as crowd-sourced content from the community. People can contribute to the broadcast themselves by uploading a 20-second video conveying “What it Means to Me to be Canadian” or by singing “O Canada”. Selected videos will be interspersed throughout the Canada Day special.
This year’s Victoria’s Canada Day is made possible through funding made available from Canadian Heritage’s Celebrate Canada program.
More details on the program line-up, performers and what’s in store for Victoria’s Canada Day will be announced in the coming weeks. For information on how to upload your video and to stay up-to-date on celebration plans, visit: canadadayvictoria.ca.
