CANADA'S FIRST CITY CELEBRATES CANADA 150
A MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR
2017 will be a momentous year for our City as we join Canadians from across the Country to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation. Having played host to celebrations that attract top talent, excite and engage all of our citizens and bring thousands of visitors to our City's centre, we are well positioned to take the main stage and make Saint John the place to be for Canada's 150th Birthday.
The events of Canada 150 will showcase everything our City has to offer - from our cultural diversity, rich history and heritage, vibrancy and prosperity. The excitement is already building as 2017 promises to deliver our most talked about celebrations to date.
I ask all Saint John citizens, and those who will be visiting, to spread the word - As Canada's First Incorporated City, Saint John will be at the forefront of this momentous year as we throw celebrations, in typical Saint John - style.
I can't wait to see you there.
Mayor Don Darling
