York U celebrates Canada turning 150

For the past 58 years, York University and Canada have shared a rich history. Our faculty, programs and students have helped shape us to become Canada's 3rd largest and leading university.

On July 1, 2017, Canada will be celebrating the 150th anniversary of Confederation. To mark this celebration, York University will be hosting a number of initiatives and events that would explore Canada’s past and look to its future, while highlighting York University and Canada 150 themes relating to the environment, diversity and inclusivity, Indigenous people, and youth.

Throughout the year, Faculty, staff, and students will feature innovative projects - conferences, workshops, symposia, installations, cultural events, and so on. We look forward to the celebration of Canada’s Sesquicentennial next year and encourage all members of the York community to participate in these funded events and the many others that will be mounted to mark this significant milestone in Canada’s history.
