This year Canada is celebrating 150 years since confederation. As we honour this milestone, it is an opportunity to celebrate our values and achievements as Canadians at home and on the international stage.
For this special occasion, a limited number of commemorative pins containing the copper roof from West Block of Parliament Hill from 1918-1996 will be awarded to Canadians who are carrying out the Canada 150 themes of diversity and inclusion, reconciliation with Indigenous peoples, youth, and the environment in their communities.
