Family Fun Vancouver recognizes that Canada has work to do in righting past wrongs and forging a more equal and inclusive future. Furthermore, we understand that, for many Canadians, Canada Day isn’t a day of celebration. While the mandate of Family Fun Vancouver is to share family-friendly events all year long, as we promote events surrounding Canada Day know that our goal is to give everyone the best information possible enabling families to mark July 1 as it best suits them and their community. However you choose to commemorate the day, know that we wish you peace, love and comfort as we work to become a more united Canada.
