A Deux-Montagnes tradition is back once again on July 1st!
Deux-Montagnes, June 5, 2023 – The program for the 52nd edition of Canada Day, celebrated in Deux-Montagnes, was unveiled at a press conference held on June 5th at City Hall. The Mayor of Deux-Montagnes, Denis Martin, and the President of the Canada Day Organizing Committee for the Deux-Montagnes MRC, Tom Whitton, are inviting all citizens of the MRC to gather in large numbers on Saturday, July 1st, at Central Park in Deux-Montagnes.
Organized by a volunteer committee in collaboration with the Ville de Deux-Montagnes, this is the only celebration of Canada’s Confederation in the North Shore region of Montreal, and one of the few in the entire Laurentians. “It’s an honour for the Ville de Deux-Montagnes to be a partner in Canada Day, an event that always brings the region’s citizens together. It’s also a privilege to be able to count on an outstanding committee of volunteers. Their invaluable involvement enables thousands of people to celebrate our pride in being Canadian through a diversified program that reflects our image,” declared Denis Martin, Mayor of Deux-Montagnes.
“After two-consecutive virtual editions of the event due to the pandemic, last year’s open-air celebrations were a great success, with some 10,000 people gathering in Central Park. We can’t wait to get back to the festive atmosphere of friends and family,” says Tom Whitton of the organizing committee. “Deux-Montagnes is by far the best place to celebrate Canada Day on the North Shore. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our partners, the Ville de Deux-Montagnes, the Government of Canada and the Caisse Desjardins de Saint-Eustache-Deux-Montagnes, for their significant contribution to our heritage event.
