Canada Day in Washington, D.C.

Canada D’eh in the USA!  On July 1, as Canadians celebrated Canada Day at home and around the world, the Embassy of Canada in Washington D.C. hosted our own celebration. What is more Canadian than maple syrup?  The answer: nothing! Over 700 Embassy contacts, members of the Canadian Armed Forces, Connect2Canada members and staff enjoyed a Calgary-stampede themed pancake breakfast, complete with cowboy hats.  The Embassy, celebrating its 25th anniversary at 501 Pennsylvania Avenue, partnered with Enbridge and the Canadian American Business Council to offer guests a taste of Canada in the heart of DC.  Pancakes were eaten, maple syrup was poured, country music was heard and a sea of red and white filled the Embassy’s courtyard.
