Valentines for Vets – “It may be wintertime but did you know you can help bring a little extra warmth to some very deserving people on Valentine’s Day? Each year grateful Canadians create thousands of handmade valentines for Veterans who live in long-term care facilities. Reaching out with a heartfelt message of thanks is a wonderful way for youth to remember the brave men and women who have served in uniform over the years. Learn about our popular ‘Valentines for Vets’ initiative today!”

Feb 15 is the 50th anniversary of Canada’s Flag – “On February 15, 1965, our national flag was raised for the first time on Parliament Hill. Canada was just two years away from centennial celebrations when the maple leaf flag was made official by Royal Proclamation. In 1996, February 15 was declared National Flag of Canada Day and has been observed every year since.

February 15, 2015, will mark the 50th anniversary of the National Flag of Canada. This special Flag Day is the perfect opportunity to learn more about how our flag was created and what it means to us.

Canadians are invited to join together and celebrate our flag by organizing their own public events or by showing their pride on social media.”

Freedom to Read Week Feb 22-28, 2015

Freedom to Read Week is an annual event that encourages Canadians to think about and reaffirm their commitment to intellectual freedom, which is guaranteed them under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Check here for kits, posters, and activity ideas.

Have fun!
