The 150TH Anniversary of Canada Celebration is a partnership initiative with the City of London Culture Office, the London Celebrates Canada not-for-profit organization, and the London Heritage Council not-for-profit organization. London City Council on July 29, 2014 provided London Celebrates Canada with ongoing operational funding for four years from 2014 to 2017, for the purpose of hiring the 150th Anniversary of Canada Coordinator. The London Heritage Council was also provided with ongoing operational funding for this time period to provide for the administration and supervision of the 150th Anniversary of Canada Coordinator.
The Coordinator will work with the 150th Anniversary of Canada Programming Committee whose purpose is to engage the community leading up to and including 2017 through educational programs, activities, events exhibitions and premier Canada celebrations to install pride and commitment to Canada on both an individual and community level.
The Culture Office will oversee the administration of the 150th Anniversary of Canada. The Programming Committee will be responsible for developing a detailed Operational Program Plan and overseeing its implementation for the 150th Anniversary of Canada.
The Coordinator will be located in the London Heritage Council office and will report directly to the London Heritage Council (LHC) Executive Director. The LHC is contracted by the City of London, through the Culture Office, over the term of Council to deliver and administer heritage programs and services and implementation of London’s Cultural Prosperity Plan.
