Explore Canada’s rich cultural heritage!blog
On July 1st, we celebrate Canada as a nation and its natural beauty surrounded by vast oceans and mountains from coast to coast to coast.
Historically the name “Canada” is thought to originate around 1535 from the Huron-Iroquois word “Kanata” which means village or settlement.
Canada has become renowned as an international leader in cultural diversity and acceptance. Today and every day, we honour the First Nations peoples who have flourished in this great country, and the talented artists and their art forms which have emerged from the land and continue to be prominently featured in galleries and museums.
At Coastal Peoples Gallery, we pay tribute to our great nation with a superb collection of Northwest Coast, Plains and Inuit artworks.
Please join us on July 1st to enjoy a day of arts and culture!
We are open daily from 10-6pm
