Canada Day in Wilmot is a children-friendly family-focused not-for-profit single-day festival organized by a volunteer association of community members celebrating the shared values of this country and its diverse communities – friendship, integrity, hard work, compassion, respect, and inclusion.
The day is designed to foster these core values through fun, educational and entertaining family-friendly activities while supporting local businesses, artists and our community partners.
With community support, though public donations and corporate partners the committee endeavors to make this a self-sustaining annual event for many years to come.
Canada Day in Wilmot is working with local Indigenous community leaders to help facilitate a shift, to enable true equity between Indigenous Peoples and Canadians. If we all participate in this process and build a greater understanding within ourselves, our communities, we will have great impact, and can continue to bring collective wellbeing to this land that sustains us all.
As Canadians strengthen ties with the First Peoples we acknowledge the Canada Day in Wilmot event is situated on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty signed with the Mississauga Nation.
The other longstanding Indigenous groups of this geographic region are the Attawandaran (Neutral), Haudenosaunee, Anishinaabe and Metis people.
