Canada’s 150th anniversary and you

After years of negotiations, our great nation was formed on July 1, 1867. While important milestones, cultural and political events continue to shape this country and position Canada as a strong model for other nations as well as a leader in the world, none of this would be possible without the individuals and families that make up our country. As Canadians all over the world join together to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation, take time to reflect on what it means to you to be Canadian. 

Great-West Life proudly serves you and over 12 million Canadians. We encourage you to join in the celebrations of our nation’s sesquicentennial. Throughout 2017, there will be many celebrations commemorating our nation’s historic achievement.
