The nation is preparing to celebrate it’s 150th birthday and Guestlogix couldn’t be more proud of it’s Canadian roots. Canada is a country rich with culture and built on inclusion and diversity – values that we take seriously at Guestlogix and practice throughout all our business operations.
Earlier this month, the Government of Canada launched “Celebrate Canada”, a four-day celebration connecting the dots between our roots and cultures, which will lead up to the grand finale on July 1st, 2017. The celebration kicked off on June 21st with National Aboriginal Day, which lead into Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day on June 24th, followed on June 27th with Canadian Multiculturalism Day and will end this weekend with Canada day on July 1st.
Keeping in the spirit of inclusivity, our Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, went viral simultaneously celebrated the LGBTQ, Muslim, and First Nations communities. With his salmon colored shirt and Ramadan themed socks, he marched alongside the First Nations National Chief Perry Bellegarde in the Toronto Pride Parade. He lives and breathes that we are one country, connected.
These initiatives got our team at Guestlogix thinking about the importance of what we do and how the aviation industry effects our nation. While we were already aware of the critical role aviation plays in the Canadian economy, we were inspired to learn about the specific individuals and events that have taken place over the last 150 years, becoming integral moments in our nation’s history.
And so was born the Guestlogix #CanadaConnected series.
In this final week leading to July 1st, 2017, we will honour Canada’s 150th Birthday by sharing some of the most inspiring and industry altering moments in the history of Canadian Aviation. This four-part series, inspired by the four-part “Celebrate Canada” program, will reflect on the impact aviation has had in making our Canada it’s most innovative, diverse, strong and of course connected self.
