Canada Day 2024:  July 1st – The tradition continues in Deux-Montagnes

Deux-Montagnes, June 17, 2024 – The schedule for the 53rd edition of Canada Day celebrated in Deux-Montagnes, was announced.  The Mayor of Deux-Montagnes, Mr. Denis Martin, and the President of the Canada Day Committee for MRC Deux-Montagnes, Mr. Tom Whitton have invited the entire MRC population to gather in large numbers on Monday, July 1st at Central Park in Deux-Montagnes.

This event, organized by a committee of volunteers in collaboration with the City of Deux-Montagnes, is the only celebration of Canada’s birthday on Montreal’s North Shore, and among the only ones in the Laurentians.  “It is an honour for the City of Deux-Montagnes to be a partner for Canada Day, an event which always brings citizens from our region together. It is also a privilege to count on such an unmatched committee of volunteers.  Their precious involvement allows for thousands of people to celebrate our pride in being Canadian with a diverse schedule in our image,” declared Mr. Denis Martin, Mayor of Deux-Montagnes.

“Unfortunately, the weather played a role in our event last year.  This year, we hope to reach the success of our 2022 event, where nearly 10,000 people gathered at Central Park.  We look forward to regaining this festive atmosphere between friends and family this year,” noted Mr. Tom Whitton from the organizing committee. “Deux-Montagnes is, by far, the best place to celebrate Canada Day on the North Shore.  I must thank our partners, the City of Deux-Montagnes, the Government of Canada, and Desjardins – Caisse de Saint-Eustache/Deux-Montagnes for their substantial contribution to our memorable cultural event.”


At 11am, many family-related activities will take place on site: inflatable games, face-painting for kids, train rides, horseshoes and cornhole tournaments, bingo, etc.  Returning for 2024, an Artisans Market will take place from 11am to 5pm.  After the opening ceremony at noon, the traditional kids race will take place, followed by the annual egg toss at 2pm.

To liven up the site, musical performances will be offered from 2:30pm right up to midnight.  The headlining performance will be from ROCKOLOGY, which will offer a tribute to anglophone and francophone classic rock from the 70s and 80s.  Also, as tradition dictates, a wonderful fireworks display will light up the sky at 10pm.

The complete schedule is attached to this press release, and we can also consult the committee’s website at



This year, the organizing committee is pleased to announce that Loucas Éthier and Kelly Ann Laurin will be our honorary co-presidents for Canada Day.

Loucas Éthier, 24 years old, and Kelly Ann Laurin, 18 years old, have been a pairs figure skating team for 6 years.  Originally from the Laurentians, they train at l’École Excellence Rosemère and are members of the national team since 2022.  Their determination and the talent propelled them rapidly upon the international scene. 

In the senior’s category, Loucas and Kelly Ann have reach important heights, making an impression in the figure skating world.  Their recent results include a 3rd place in Canada in 2024, along with a 15th place at Worlds.  Their impressive performance has been on display at other international competitions – 8th place at the Four Continents Championships in China in 2024, 7th place at the NHK Trophy in Japan in 2023, 5th Place at Skate Canada in Vancouver in 2023, and on and on.

Motivated by a shared passion and a common vision, Loucas Ethier and Kelly Ann Laurain continue to push the limits of their art, inspiring and captivating the public with each performance on the ice.


“As we have been for many years now, the Caisse Desjardins of Saint-Eustache/Deux-Montagnes is pleased to again be a partner in Canada Day.  These celebrations match perfectly with our mission to contribute to the social and economic well-being of our community, along with meeting our primary values of cooperation, commitment and solidarity,” underlined Ms. Alexanne Lafrance Legault, communications and community life advisor for the Caisse.

Finally, we must also highlight the support from our major sponsor for the event: Benoit Charette, Provincial MNA for Deux-Montagnes and minister for the Environment, for the Fight against Climate Change for Wildlife and for Parks.
