Canada Day 2019 is on Monday, July 1. Canada Day is a federal statutory holiday which commemorates the anniversary of the effective date of the Constitution Act, 1867. Canada became a free province on this day. Celebrations like fireworks and parades are planned to celebrate Canada’s 152nd birthday. Celebrations take place throughout the country.

Parades, fireworks, backyard barbecues and get-togethers are parts of Canada Day celebrations. As part of traditions, revellers wear red and white which define Canada’s national flag. Festivities are organised on a large scale in Ottawa, the capital of Canada. Celebrations are not complete without watching the fireworks. Therefore, several events have been planned for fireworks across Toronto. Canada Day 2019: Know Date, History and Significance of National Day of Canada.
