Sherry Romanado, Member of Parliament for Longueuil — Charles-LeMoyne, today announced $99,250 in funding to Greenfield Park 2011 Centennial for their Canada 150 Longueuil — Charles-LeMoyne project. This announcement was made on behalf of the Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Canadian Heritage.

This support, provided by the Government of Canada through the Canada 150 Fund, will enable the organization to offer the population of Longueuil—Charles-LeMoyne a rich program of activities during a major celebration that will take place this coming August 15th to 20th to commemorate Canada 150.

To make 2017 a year that all Canadians will remember, the Government of Canada will continue to invest in local, regional and Canada-wide projects.

Canada 150 gives Canadians the opportunity to celebrate our shared values, our achievements, our majestic environment and our country’s place in the world. It is also an ideal opportunity for Canadians to get involved in their communities.


This year, Canada 150 is an opportunity to bring communities across the country together to celebrate what it means to be Canadian and to look towards the future with hope and optimism. The Government of Canada is proud to create opportunities for Canadians to participate in local, regional, and national celebrations. I invite everyone to take part in the festivities marking this significant anniversary and to show the world what makes our country so special. Join the celebration!

The Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Canadian Heritage
