Message by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Canada Day
July 1, 2018
From along the 49th parallel to the top of the world, to friends and families around the world, happy Canada Day!
No matter where we are today, we celebrate Canada and the people who built the country we love.
We’re strong in our differences, proud of our diversity, and united in our dreams and that’s thanks to Canadians like you.
From one generation to the next, Canadians have brought our country’s promise to life. They’ve built strong communities and grown the middle class at the heart of our success.
And today, Canada’s workers are the backbone of our country. They build the roads that get us to work on time and back home again, and they put food on the table for families across the country and beyond.
From coast to coast to coast, we know we can count on Canadians to get the job done. That’s why we stand with each other and why we’ll always stand up for each other, because Canada’s success has always come from its people lifting each other up, one community at a time.
So today, let’s celebrate everything we’ve accomplished and do what Canadians do best: look to the future and roll up our sleeves. Because together, I know we’ll keep building a country that makes us all proud.
From our family to yours, happy Canada Day!
