Rendezvous in Canada

By Linda Tancs

On July 1, 1867, Canada was born when the British North America Act of 1867 put into effect a union of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and the Province of Canada (comprising Québec and Ontario). This year marks the 150th anniversary of the Confederation, prompting a yearlong, countrywide celebration. For instance, more than 40 tall ships will be sailing Canadian waters to mark the occasion during Rendez-vous 2017, which began on June 30 and ends on August 20, 2017. They’re scheduled to stop at host ports in Ontario, Québec and the Maritimes, including a grand celebration at the Port of Québec from July 18 to July 23.
