Canada Day celebrations for the whole family

The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere, is pleased to invite residents to the annual Canada Day celebrations, which will take place on Sunday, July 1, starting at 2 p.m. at Alexandre-Bourgeau Park and in Pointe-Claire Village.

“Once again this year, there will be plenty of activities for all tastes and all ages. Whether you are active or introspective, this is an opportunity for everyone to have fun with their families, friends, and neighbours,” stated Mayor Belvedere.

Celebration schedule

  • From 2 to 3 p.m., the annual citizenship ceremony will take place at the Stewart Hall Cultural Centre.
  • From 2 to 5 p.m., everyone is invited to test their paddle-boarding skills at Grande-Anse Park, next to the Canoe Club.
  • From 2 to 6 p.m., people of all ages can have fun with a refreshing free swim in the village pool.
  • From 2 to 8:30 p.m., there will be inflatable structures, face painting, glitter tattoos, and an art activity for young children at Alexandre-Bourgeau Park, as well as a stilt-walking workshop at 3 p.m. and a Zumba activity at 4:30 p.m. on stage in the park. The whole family can also create lasting memories of the day by posing in front of a caricature artist or taking a fun picture in the photo booth.

Pointe-Claire Village will come alive at the end of the afternoon, and starting at 4:30 p.m. you can meet the city councillors at the tent located next to Édouard-Paiement Park. They will even have some surprises in store for the occasion!

“Come meet us to talk about topics that matter to you and ask all of your questions. We are glad to have this opportunity to chat with you in a less formal setting. We hope you will join us,” explained Mayor Belvedere.

The national anthem will be heard on stage at the park around 8:15 p.m., followed by a musical performance. Starting at around 10:10 p.m., viewers will be dazzled by the traditional fireworks show, which will be launched from a barge on Lake Saint-Louis, a new feature that is sure to make this highly anticipated moment even more enjoyable and surprising!

Participants are encouraged to bring their reusable water bottles, which they can refill at the water station, and their chairs so they can sit comfortably. In case of rain, the event will be postponed to July 2, except for the citizenship ceremony and the concert at Saint-Joachim Church which will still take place on July 1.
