Celebrate the Heritage of Sport and Recreation on Heritage Day, February 15, 2010!

This being Canada’s Olympic Year, Heritage Day 2010 is an opportunity for Canadian communities to celebrate the Heritage of Sport and Recreation. Canadians have been quick to embrace these pleasures—from lacrosse, curling and hockey, to boating, skiing and hiking—and to build the infrastructure needed to support them. The Heritage Canada Foundation promotes the third Monday in February each year as Heritage Day.
