UWaterloo to host one last Canada Day celebration in 2019

January 15, 2019

The University of Waterloo hopes that a new host will take over duties for the region’s Canada Day celebrations after 2019, reports the Waterloo Region Record. UWaterloo has held Canada Day celebrations since 1984, but the university said that the size and scope of the annual event has become prohibitive. According to the Region Record, the free, one-day celebration costs the university upwards of $250K. “It certainly wasn't an easy decision,” said VP of University Relations Sandra Banks. “The university has been very proud to have had the opportunity to host Canada Day.” The Record |UWaterloo (ON)
