A national conservation on Canada’s upcoming 150th anniversary will be sparked with a cross-country community series.
CBC/Radio-Canada, VIA Rail Canada and Community Foundations of Canada are hosting the “Canada 150: 2017 Starts Now” initiative.
The travelling conferences will inform, inspire and incubate local and regional projects to mark the country’s milestone birthday, and will leverage new ways to connect Canadians to national initiatives.
The series will begin in April and run until June, with a conference scheduled in each province. The conference will be in Winnipeg on Friday, May 3.
Venue and programming details will soon be available at CBC.Radio-Canada.ca/canada150-en.
