Although Parliament Hill has been the official site of our national holiday for more than 50 years, the renovations to Parliament mean the main stages will move to new locations. On July 1, Canada Day will take place from 9 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. (ET) at LeBreton Flats Park in Ottawa and Place des Festivals Zibi in Gatineau.
Residents and visitors will be able to attend the daytime ceremony, starting at 11:30 a.m., and the evening show, beginning at 8 p.m., in person. For the first time, these two flagship Canada Day events will take place in LeBreton Flats Park. The Tim Hortons Canada Day fireworks will also be held near this site. Starting at 10 p.m. (ET), the dazzling pyrotechnic display will light up the sky over Ottawa–Gatineau. For the best views, we recommend heading to LeBreton Flats Park, Place des Festivals Zibi or the surrounding streets, which will be closed to traffic.
