It was once called Dominion Day but since 1982 July 1 is recognized as Canada Day. Fireworks, parties, concerts, parades, picnics, and fairs celebrate Canada’s birthday.
Cole- Parmer’s Canada office based in Montreal is hosting fellow United Kingdom colleague Lyssa Durham for the rest of the week as part of an office exchange program. Lyssa will be spending her first Canada Day in Montreal taking in the parade downtown.
“I’ve spent the last ten days here in Montreal. The office is fantastic and I’ve been getting to know the real Montreal, including their fine food and entertainment,” said Durham.
Another Canada office staff member will be spending the holiday camping in Mont-Tremblant. Cole-Parmer wishes all of our friends and colleagues north of the border a happy and celebratory Canada Day!
