Thanksgiving Day

Happy (Canadian) Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving 2017
Thanksgiving occurs in October in Canada, and is traditionally a time to give thanks, after the crops have been harvested.

This year, in Ontario, we celebrated the 152nd anniversary of Canadian confederation in July. Ontario was one of the four founding provinces of Canada. The other three are Quebec; New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. There are ten Canadian provinces today, plus three self-governing territories in Canada’s north.

Our cool and wet Ontario spring has yielded to an summer that has stretched a few extra weeks into October. The tropical plants remain outside at least three weeks later than most years. The early autumn rains bring moisture in  warm, wet, showers to keep the garden mostly green at a time when the leaves are going golden most years. Warm wishes to friends and clients of Upper Canada Immigration, wherever you are.
