Port Hardy will be celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee with the support of the Government of Canada.

The Honourable John Duncan, Minister of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development and Member of Parliament for Vancouver Island North last week announced that the Government of Canada will provide the District of Port Hardy $6,300 to assist the people of Port Hardy in celebrating Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee.

The Jubilee is the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty’s accession to the throne as Queen of Canada.

As part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations, the Government of Canada is providing support to a wide range of organizations and projects across the country, including many unique, grassroots celebrations to mark The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and highlight how Canada has evolved over the past 60 years under Her Majesty’s reign.

These celebrations will enable Canadians to participate in events that contribute to building a sense of pride and belonging to Canada. These events will celebrate the role of the Crown in Canada as well as our traditions, history, symbols, values, and institutions.
