Canada Day 2020 – National Day message from the Consul General Of Canada

Dear fellow Canadians and friends from Hong Kong and Macao,

Happy Canada Day! I am pleased to offer you my sincerest best wishes as we celebrate Canada’s 153rd anniversary of Confederation this week.

Just like millions of people around the world, this year Canada is celebrating a #StayAtHome birthday.  The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a devastating impact on many countries around the world, creating a “new normal” for many of us. One that has likely affected many in Hong Kong and Macao is the restriction of international travel, and this unfortunately means we may not be able to welcome you to our beautiful country this Canada Day.

However… I am happy to share that Canada is coming to you! This July:

  • Celebrate Canada Day virtually with family and friends by sending them a special e-card!  Choose from amazing Canadian superheroes designed by extremely talented students from Hong Kong and Macao.
  • Come enjoy "A Beautiful Day” with us on the weekend of July 10 to 12, 2020, at THE GARAGE @ D2 Place TWO in Lai Chi Kok. Sample delicious Canadian food and beverages, bring home lovely accessories designed by Hong Kong-Canadians artists, and celebrate the amazing country that Canada is. Consulate General of Canada staff will be there to provide information on studying and working in Canada. Don’t forget to check out the “My Canadian Superhero” and “#MyOwnCanadianExperience” digital exhibitions!

There’s more coming in the second half of the year, including Canadian food and products sold online and in-store promotions, and Canadian film and music being brought here for your enjoyment. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to stay updated on upcoming activities!

We look forward to welcoming you (back) to Canada very soon.

Happy Canada Day!

Jeff Nankivell
Consul General
