Canada Turns One Hundred and Fifty on
July 1, 2017.

In honour of our 150 year anniversary as a country, the Canada 150 Project will commission 150 Canadian artists from a myriad of disciplines to interpret 150 great Canadian achievements.

Partnering with extraordinary emerging, established and celebrity Canadian artists is a compelling & never been done before way to illustrate our history, celebrate this anniversary milestone, educate our people, inspire & respect our new immigrants and showcase the enormous talent this country has to be proud of.

This collection will be shared with the nation via a cross Canada tour of public spaces allowing Canadians from all corners of the country to celebrate the unique, everlasting impact our country has had on the world.

By using the digital assets of our current world, Canadians at home and abroad along with global citizens will be able to participate and share in this celebration.

It is estimated that Canada has 60% of the world’s lakes, that’s more than all other countries combined.
The Bloody Caesar was invented in Calgary, Alberta by restaurant manager Walter Chell.
The TransCanada Highway, a ribbon of asphalt winding 8000 km from coast to coast, is one of the longest roads in the world.

We are proud to announce the following artists are in support of the Canada One Fifty Project.
