Celebrating the sesquicentennial in style.
2017 marks Canada’s 150th Anniversary of Confederation. That means all year long, communities across the nation will be doing their part to celebrate Canada’s sesquicentennial in style – and Lesser Slave River is no exception. As a region that’s well-known for playing just as hard as it works, Lesser Slave River’s festival and cultural event planners are pulling out all stops to ensure an unforgettable 150th.
All year long, the MD of Lesser Slave River will be doing its part to showcase the splendour of the region to travelers from afar and home-grown locals alike. The MD is nearing completion of its piece of the Trans Canada Trail. This coast-to-coast marvel is designed to help Canadians get out and explore the nation.
Make the Most of this Year of Celebration
The MD will be curating a variety of area activities within this special Canada 150 section of the website. Visit this page often to discover a growing inventory of natural wonders, local festivals and much more. From a world-renowned fishing derby to fairs, rodeos and a wide variety of native cultural activities, the reasons to celebrate Canada’s 150th in our uniquely beautiful boreal home know no bounds.
Canada’s 150th provides a great opportunity for us to reflect on our heritage and celebrate our special place on the world stage. For Lesser Slave River, this means a year-long celebration that has already begun. Take part in the excitement!
