Sesquicentennial in Canada
That’s right Sesquicentennial. Ses·qui·cen·ten·ni·al – the meaning being a one-hundred-and-fiftieth anniversary, which is what our Halifax office celebrated on July 1, the anniversary of Canada’s Confederation. The anniversary is to celebrate a political event, when the Province of Canada (Ontario and Quebec), Nova Scotia and New Brunswick came together to form the Dominion of Canada.
The 150th anniversary of Confederation focused on major themes such as diversity and inclusion, reconciliation with indigenous people, environment and youth. The anniversary gave Canadian’s the opportunity to get involved in their communities and to celebrate together. Samara Millin (pictured top right) and Nicole Parker (pictured bottom right) from our Halifax office helped out at a local non profit organisation at Hantsport Memorial Community Centre. Both were involved in assisting with a variety of games and activities for their local community in Nova Scotia.
