Canada Day 2019 Message from the President
On Canada Day, we reflect, remember and celebrate the good that being Canadian is all about. And we acknowledge and lift up all those who contribute to making life better for all. This day of reflection is particularly significant as we pause to remember the great sacrifice made by soldiers of the Newfoundland Regiment during the First World War in the Battle of the Somme at Beaumont Hamel. We honour these courageous soldiers who, more than 100 years ago, bravely fought for peace and freedom.
