Canada 150

Canada 150 and Passport 2017

With the 150th anniversary of Confederation occurring this year, Destination Canada is rolling out Passport 2017 – a mobile app that collects all Canada 150 celebrations across the country and places them in the palm of your hand.

Tourism Abbotsford is committed to help spread the word of various Canada 150 themed events and celebrations across Abbotsford. If your business or event has something planned to celebrate this anniversary, we encourage you to go to and add your event to the passport.

Additionally, Parks Canada has decided to celebrate by providing free entry to all National Parks and Historic Sites in Canada next year. This will be done by giving away free Discovery Passes, which grants the holder access to these parks and sites. These passes will be available at the Abbotsford Visitor Centre on Delair Rd. starting January 2nd.
