The City of Selkirk presents Canada Day at the Selkirk Rec Complex on Friday, July 1.
The day will include cultural programming along with live entertainment a market and of course, food vendors and the best fireworks display in the Interlake.
The free event will take place outdoors (weather permitting) so please bring a lawn chair.
The City of Selkirk is on Treaty 1 territory and that the land on which we gather is the traditional gathering place of the Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene Peoples, and the homeland of the Red River Métis Nation.
As we work towards reconciliation, it’s important to recognize Canada’s history and acknowledge the harms and wrongs this includes. We reflect on what it means to be Canadian and how that experience has been and continues to be inequitable for many. We reflect on what sort of Canada do we want to build together, for the future.
Selkirk has a vibrant Indigenous population that has shaped our community and we are so proud of that. This July 1 we have planned an event that allows the community to come together in a welcoming and educational space. All Canadian’s are encouraged to take time to learn, and reflect on how they can contribute to reconciliation.
