Brampton's Canada Day recognizes the history and diversity that makes Canada home to so many and commemorates unity and cultural mosaic through the performance schedule starting at 6 PM. As this year marks Canada’s 154th birthday, the City recognizes it is a time for reflection on the country’s past and how we can work together to build a stronger, more inclusive future. In Brampton, we are honoured to live, work and enjoy this land.
Performances begin and are led by leaders and artists from the Indigenous Communities in Brampton and beyond. Their messages give voice to Indigenous life and experiences, and recognize the creative talent and teachings that they contribute to our communities.
The pre-recorded virtual concert starts at 6 pm, on the digital stage presented by Alectra, featuring host Daniel Pillai. Mskwaasin Agnew will offer an Indigenous Land Acknowledgement and remarks, and Brampton’s-own Roberta Battaglia will sing Canada’s national anthem, followed by opening performances by chart-topping Indigenous folk artists Twin Flames, and Juno award winners iskwē & Tom Wilson. The headline performance is the multi-platinum selling, four-time Juno award-winning, rock and roll band The Sheepdogs. The show will be live streamed at www.brampton.ca/canadaday, through The Rose Brampton’s Vimeo channel.
