Creative Activities for Canada’s 150th

Our Canada in 150 Seconds: 150-second Videos by 150 Montrealers for Canada’s 150th project has been a resounding success. Close to 150 videos have been completed and are on our online gallery. The last of four showcase events takes place on Friday, December 1 from 1:00 to 3:00pm (see the project page  or EVENTS column for details). The project is funded by the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, a collaboration between Fondation du Grand Montréal, the Government of Canada, and extraordinary leaders from coast to coast.

Our 150 Words for 150 Years flash writing contest attracted almost 200 entries from all over Canada and outside of Canada, and culminated with public readings and presentation of prizes at our 150th Day Party on May 30.
