Canada 150




Canadians across the nation are celebrating Canada's 150 this year, and the Municipality of Chester plans to commemorate the heck out of our momentous milestone! Register your event with us and we will give you some swag to give away! Click on "Submit Your Event" and send us your community group's name, contact person, a description of your event and anticipated number of participants. In return, we will advertise your event on social media, in our newsletter, on our website, and submit it for recognition on the Government of Canada's website. Check back frequently as we will be posting special Canada 150 events here.

Not sure how to celebrate? You don't need to come up with a brand new idea...dedicate one of your existing events to commemorate our birthday! Some ideas are to:

  • Serve something "heritage" at your community meal or event, like apple bread pudding, maple syrup or old fashioned preserves.
  • Post Canada 150 signs (we have banners that can be reserved on a first come, first served basis...include the request when you submit your event!).
  • Have a "heritage" farm market or sale.
  • Give us more ideas!
