The national Canada 150 Confederation Delegation Tour took place from May 30th to June 7th to raise support for the Canada 150 Atlantic to Pacific Drumming Celebration.
A key part of the Confederation Delegation Tour was sharing with the communities the incredible contributions Chinese-Canadian veterans have made to our country. The tour was joined by World War II veterans to commemorate Canada’s 150 years of confederation, and raised awareness about the significant involvement of Chinese-Canadians in the creation of Canada.
