Happy Birthday To Our National Anthem - O Canada!
Not only does Canada turn 147 years old on Tuesday, July 1st; Canada Day. But our National Anthem is also celebrating a birthday this weekend. O Canada turns 34 this year.
On this day in 1980, the current version of O Canada was officially adopted as Canada’s National Anthem under the National Anthem Act.
The Act was proclaimed by then Governor General Edward Schreyer in a public ceremony on Parliament Hill on Canada Day (July 1st, 1980).
Please join me in wishing our National Anthem a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
