Federal government declares "Virtual Canada Day" for 2020

Apr 17 2020, 4:50 pm

The federal government has announced that this year, in light of the ongoing global crisis, the nation will celebrate Canada Day virtually.

Word was shared via Twitter on Friday, through the Canadian Heritage account.

“In light of the current situation with the COVID-19 pandemic and the government’s priority of keeping Canadians safe, Canadian Heritage has decided to host Canada Day virtually,” the post reads.

“Details will be announced soon.”

What this means for Canadians, as seen in the tweet, is still unclear.

Fireworks might only be seen on screens this July 1. Time — and updates from Canadian Heritage — will tell.
