Submit your 30 second Here's My Canada video for the chance to win great prizes!
 
Video submissions must reflect on Canadian culture, history or identity. This is a chance for you to have fun and be creative as you celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday.

This contest is open to anyone living in Canada and videos can be in any language. 
 
Here’s My Canada is a multilingual, nation-wide contest inviting Canadians to express what Canada means to them in a 30-second video. Here’s My Canada is a project of Historica Canada and is a Canada 150 Signature project.

The Here’s My Canada learning tools provide discussion topics and educational activities to help students explore questions of Canadian identity and create their entries to the contest.

Here’s My Canada has partnered with the Canada Day Challenge, an arts contest delivered by the Department of Canadian Heritage, to offer an early bird prize for the Junior and Intermediate categories! Winners will receive an all-expenses paid trip for them and a parent or guardian to travel to Ottawa to celebrate Canada Day 2017 and the 150th anniversary celebrations on Parliament Hill.
