 Resources for Canada150


On July 1, 2017, Canadians will come together to celebrate our nation’s 150th birthday. Throughout the year, Canada will celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation. In addition, the Province of Ontario is also celebrating its 150th anniversary during 2017. Across the country, organizations and communities have started planning how to celebrate this major national milestone.

The Toronto Catholic District School Board takes great pride in the fact that Catholic schools have been a vibrant part of Canada's history even before confederation, and this sesquicentennial year provides a wonderful opportunity for us to showcase the story of Catholic education throughout history and to look forward at the countless possibilities that lie before us in the future.
