Tartan day celebrations
Tartan Day has been celebrated in Canada since 1986, when the idea of celebrating heritage and our history became a wonderful project in Nova Scotia headed by Jean Watson, Scot of the Year in 2007.
Ms. Watson and her team worked very hard to promote April 6 as Tartan Day, and after 10 years they had every province on board. The date marks the Declaration of Arbroath, signed in 1320 in Scotland.
For Canada's 150th birthday, we have received news on events taking place in many cities from coast to coast to coast, and will list information here so that you can take part!
Did you know that 15% of Canadians claim Scottish heritage, with the Irish claiming a close 14%?
Celebrate with us in 2019- April 7 on Parliament Hill at 12 noon sharp, or plan a party yourself and get in touch - we want to hear about it!
