Join with the three Host Nations (Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh) as they welcome canoe families from the Pulling Together Canoe Society at this Canada 150+ Signature Event.
You are invited to witness a traditional landing of the Pulling Together Canoe Journey. During a 10-day journey along traditional highways from the Sunshine Coast to the City of Vancouver, up to 30 canoes—with First Nations, Public Service Agencies and youth paddlers—will request permission to land on the traditional territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations.
This is a public event; please share this invitation with your colleagues, families and friends.
