Ottawa's Canada Day 2022 celebration

OTTAWA,June 28, 2022 – This Friday, July 1, Canada Day 2022 will return with live programming in Ottawa and Gatineau. Canadians from across the country are welcome to visit Canada’s Capital Region where they will be able to attend shows and activities in person at the new sites (LeBreton Flats Park and Place des Festivals Zibi in Gatineau).

Here is the list of artists who will participate in the televised show, hosted by Isabelle Racicot and Ali Hassan. This artistic event will be broadcast on Radio-Canada, ICI TÉLÉ, CBC Television and CBC Gem from 8 to 10 p.m. local time (9 to 11 p.m. NDT and 9:30 to 11:30 p.m. AST).

Live from LeBreton Flats Park in Ottawa:

Charlotte Cardin | Walk Off The Earth | Ariane Moffatt | Salebarbes
Sebastian Gaskin | Sarahmée | Cindy Bédard | Riit | Gurdeep Pandher

This year’s show will take viewers and fans on a journey from Canada’s Capital Region in Ontario to British Columbia, Quebec, Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan, and the Northwest Territories. In addition to the live show in Ottawa, the broadcast will join:

Johnny Reid in Vancouver
William Prince in Yellowknife
Neon Dreams in Halifax
Tenille Arts in Saskatoon
Samian in Montréal

This Friday, people across the country will be able to come together to highlight Canada’s wonderful diversity, inclusion, and youth.

Although Parliament Hill has been the official site of Canada’s national holiday for more than 50 years, the renovations to Parliament mean the main stages will move to new locations. This year live Canada Day events 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), this 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.
