January 11, 2017 - As we begin 2017, Canadians are coming together to mark the 150th anniversary of Confederation – reflecting on the history that has shaped our country today, and sharing a vision for Canada's future.
We understand that our differences make us stronger. And we want to contribute to a more peaceful, prosperous, equal, and pluralist world for all.
For more than 35 years, Aga Khan Foundation Canada has brought the best of Canada to the world to change people’s lives for the better.
And now, for Canada’s 150th anniversary, we invite you to join us to make an even bigger difference in the world – and celebrate all the ways that we are Canadian.
