Celebrating Canada’s Diversity
Today we continue to take time to reflect, learn, and build our back community stronger. Our theme for this years Canada Day Celebration is Celebrating Canada’s Diversity. We honour our relationship and connection to the Sts’ailes People and their territory that we live, work, and play on here in Harrison Hot Springs. Our Canada Day activities will take place in the heart of Harrison Hot Springs, and on the ancient Village of Qwólts, as part of our Celebrating Diversity we recommend all attendees reflect and learn and visit Qwólts Park to learn more about Sts’ailes and the ancient Village of Qwólts .
The Harrison River Valley as whole is situated on the ancestral and unceded territories of the Sts’ailes, Seabird Island, Sq’ewá:lxw, Cheam, Douglas, Leq’a:mel, Samahquam, Sq’ewlets, and Skatin First Nations.
In partnership with our local community and municipalities, we welcome you to the ancient Village of Qwólts, now known as Harrison Hot Springs. This Canada Day we are celebrating our roots and what makes each of us unique. Our volunteers have worked very hard to put this event together and we look forward to bringing you another year of entertainment and celebration of our local communities.
