The theme for the Canada Day events in Saskatoon is “Respect and Honour”

The theme for Saskatoon's Canada Day events is "Respect and Honour."

Key Takeaways:

  • Canada Day in Saskatoon will take on a slightly different appearance as activities move downtown.
  • Ali claimed that some important facts had been posted on the official website so that people may learn more about residential schools and Indigenous issues.

As events move downtown, Canada Day in Saskatoon will look slightly different.

Shad Ali, the director of Canada Day Saskatoon, told CTV News, “Transit will provide a shuttle from 3 or 4 different retail centers to help visitors reach downtown.” “City parking spaces are free because it’s a holiday.”

According to Ali, the concept this year will be a little different from prior years.

“This year’s theme is a reverent honoring of our country. We choose that because, in our opinion, it is one of the things that must be done, he said.

There are undoubtedly some things we are not very proud of, and we must recognize some historical facts.

Ali stated that for people to learn more about residential schools and Indigenous issues, some crucial details had been put on the official website.

“We also want to honor the continued strength of this country. It remains free. We must be on the lookout for that, he said.

In addition to celebrating Canada as it is today, we also want to plan for and create the Canada of the future.
