The sesquicentennial is as meaningful to Canada as it is hard to pronounce. The world itself means one-hundred-and-fiftieth anniversary and in Canada, it marks a great milestone for the young country. From free admission to all Canadian National Parks, to the coast to coast Canada 150 Mosaic Mural project, Canada 150 celebrations have been going on all year. Whether you’re visiting, just arrived, moving to, or have lived in Canada all your life, there are always new things to try. From the Vancouver food scene, to the Toronto Sports teams, or even snowshoeing through the north, Canada is rich with culture and things to do.
