Premier David Eby has issued the following statement marking Canada Day

Victoria Monday, July 1, 2024 7:30 AM

“Canada Day is a time to come together with family, friends and neighbours to celebrate this wonderful country we call home.

“Canada is rightly known as a place of safety, a place of opportunity and a place of beauty, and people from around the world come here to build a better life.

“Our diversity is a strength, and we are at our best when everyone is free to be themselves – no matter their faith or background, who they love or how they identify.

“Canada’s historical wrongs against Indigenous Peoples make today difficult for many, and we must all continue to learn from the past to build a better future for everyone based on reconciliation, respect and the recognition of Indigenous rights.

“Today, let us celebrate our country, reflect on what it means to us and look for ways we can make it a more welcoming place for all.

“From my family to yours, happy Canada Day!”

The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement on Canada Day

Ottawa, Ontario

“No matter where you are today, I hope you are celebrating the incredible people, the land, and the story that is Canada. It’s a story that began more than 157 years ago – with Indigenous Peoples who’ve called this land home since time immemorial.

“It’s a story of sacrifice. When Canadian soldiers stormed the beaches of Normandy, they knew they were risking their lives. But freedom – even for those across an ocean, even for generations of people they would never meet – was worth fighting for.

“It’s a story that includes injustices, ones that we are confronting on our path of reconciliation. It’s a story of learning – learning that we are stronger not in spite of our differences, but because of them.

“And it’s a story that is still being written, by incredible Canadians who step up for their community and country. From the workers and volunteers who cared for our most vulnerable during the pandemic, to the brave first responders who, right now, race toward danger to protect homes from wildfires, to the members of the Canadian Armed Forces who stand on the frontlines, defending democracy and freedom.

“Together, let’s keep improving this incredible place we all call home. Let’s make our communities more vibrant, dynamic, and inclusive. Let’s break barriers and create opportunity for everyone. Let’s build a future where every generation has a fair shot, no matter who you are, where you come from, how you pray, or who you love. And let’s work together to fulfil the promise of this country – a promise of peace, freedom, prosperity, and fairness.

“On this Canada Day, let’s celebrate everything we have achieved together and reaffirm our work to make Canada even better.”

Canada Day Recipes

Canadian Flag Cake

 

 

 

Celebrate Canada Day with a Canadian flag cake! Vanilla sheet cake is topped with a whipped cream cheese frosting and decorated with strawberries to make the flag of Canada. This will feed a crowd. Serve it with extra sliced strawberries if desired.

Prep Time: 45 mins
Cook Time: 20 mins
Additional Time: 30 mins
Total Time: 1 hr 35 mins
Servings: 24
Yield: 1 11×17-inch cake

Ingredients

Cake:

  • 1 ½ cups white sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature
  • ½ cup sour cream, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 cup milk, at room temperature

Frosting:

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream

Decoration:

  • 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour an 11×17-inch baking pan with 1-inch high sides.

  2. Prepare the cake: Beat sugar and butter together in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat eggs one at a time into the butter mixture; beat in sour cream and vanilla.

  3. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl. With the mixer at low speed, add flour mixture to butter mixture alternately with milk just until combined. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl and finish mixing with a rubber spatula. Pour batter into the prepared pan; spread to corners of the pan and smooth the top with a spatula.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Cool cake completely, about 30 minutes. To remove cake from the pan, run a paring knife between cake and the pan. Cover cake pan with a plate or cooling rack; invert to transfer cake onto a plate.

  5. Make the frosting: Beat cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla together in a bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Reduce mixer speed to low; slowly pour in cream. Once cream is incorporated, turn mixer speed to medium-high; beat until stiff peaks form, about 2 minutes.

  6. Spread cream cheese mixture evenly over top and sides of cake, smoothing the top.

  7. Finish with decoration: Place 2 to 3 rows of overlapping strawberry slices parallel to the short sides of the cake for the two red stripes of the Canadian flag. Trace out a maple leaf shape in the center of the cake with a toothpick. Use points of strawberry slices to create points of the maple leaf. Cut a strip of strawberry for the leaf stem. Fill in the area of the maple leaf with sliced strawberries.

  8. Refrigerate cake until ready to serve.

 

Tips

This cake can be decorated and served right in the pan for easier transport. If removing the cake from the pan, frost the sides and add sliced strawberries around the edge for a nice presentation.

Raspberries can be used for the sides of the flag, but strawberries work best for the maple leaf. You can find maple leaf templates for your cake online.

Store leftover cake, covered, in the refrigerator.

Canada Day Ice Cream Sandwiches

 

 

 

These Canada Day Ice Cream Sandwiches are a simple and fun dessert idea for your holiday celebrations!  Just 2 ingredients: ice cream sandwiches and sprinkles.

  • Author: Jo-Anna Rooney
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 12 servings 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 12 ice cream sandwiches (allow at least 1 sandwich per person)
  • maple leaf sprinkles (found at Bulk Barn or you could use regular red and white sprinkles. I used less than 1 cup for 12 sandwiches)
  • parchment paper for freezing

Instructions

  1. Put all the sprinkles on a plate.
  2. Tap the open edges of the ice cream sandwiches in the sprinkles, wiggling them to make sure all the ice cream is covered with sprinkles in the way you like.
  3. Place the finished sandwiches into a container in the freezer until you are ready to serve them.  I placed pieces of parchment paper between the layers so the sandwiches don’t stick together.
  4. Enjoy!
