Celebrating Canada Day
Canad Inns in honoured to host the annual Canada Day celebrations at Assiniboine Park.
In 2001, Canad Inns re-established Assiniboine Park as the location for family focused celebrations and we are thrilled to be able to continue that tradition yearly.
This daylong family event is a wonderful occasion for Manitobans to gather and celebrate our nation’s birthday. The celebrations start at 1:00 pm and feature activities and events for children and families, musical entertainment, and conclude with a spectacular fireworks display set to music. The fireworks show is one you WILL NOT WANT TO MISS.
Canad Inns believes in giving back to our community. Our mission statement is – professionals serving professionals, our community serving the community, our family serving families. This annual Canada Day celebration is one of the many ways we proudly give back to our community.
Canad Inns would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who attended Canad Inns Picnic in the Park on July 1, 2015. Canad Inns was proud to once again host these festivities and present the MOST SPECTACULAR FIREWORKS display!

The Spirit of We Award:
As a proud Sponsor of We Day Manitoba since 2011, Canad Inns wishes to honour and support Manitoba youth who have embodied the “spirit of we” by giving back to their community following We Day Manitoba this past year.
This year marked the third year of the Spirit of We Awards. Manitoba students were invited, in 250 words or less, to tell us about the cause they are supporting and why taking action is important to them and their community. One youth and one school group were selected to receive a $ 1000. Award to donate to a local or global cause of their choice.
Canad Inns would like to congratulate the 2015 Spirit of We Award winners:
The Youth Award was presented to Madison Vanderhooft, a grade 6 student who initiated Cuddles 4 Kids in Winnipeg.
Cuddles 4 Kids is a school based initiative to collect stuffed animals where Madison presents them to Emergency Medical Services stations. “Cuddles” are given to children who are being transported by ambulance or who are witnessing a loved one as they are taken away to hospital. Madison has gone to several schools speaking about the organization and has raised more than 1000 stuffed animals to date.
Madison also collects donations for Winnipeg Harvest, donates clothes for a Relief Fund in the Philippines, maintains a donation box for Siloam Mission, donates funds to the Winnipeg Humane Society and participates in fundraising efforts at her school through Free The Children. Madison has shown that even young learners can initiate ideas and take action that will have an impact in their community and beyond.
The School Group Award was presented to the grade 11 class of Wanipigow School. They have been taking a lot of action in their community and have participated and led community clean ups, logging over 900 hours of volunteer work since September 2014. They have support many local charities including Siloam Mission, Free The Children, Canadian Red Cross, and each class member brought in money to send to World Vision to support children getting an education in Nicaragua.
These students value the gift of respect, not only to one another, but to everyone. Helping people around their community and around the world, giving children the opportunity to get an education, has changed their perspective of the world we live in today, and they all want to help to make it better.
In 250 words or less, tell us about the cause you are supporting and why taking action is important to you and your community.
One youth and one school group will be selected to receive a $1000. Award each, to donate to a local or global cause of their choice.
