As Canadians, we have a lot to celebrate. We are the 2nd largest country in the world. Canada ranks amongst the highest in economic freedom, education and quality of life. We have a great deal to be grateful for. Canada offers freedom, safety, opportunity, harmony and inclusion. Within the City of Mississauga alone, there are 130 spoken languages. We are a country of compassionate, kind and caring citizens. We should all be proud to be Canadians. Take part in Port Credit’s Paint the Town Red Canada Day activities. Join us in proudly celebrating Canada’s birthday.

The Village of Port Credit leads the way in fostering such community spirit. Passion and community pride are just two of the key ingredients behind the dedicated volunteers and non-profit groups who work tirelessly to bring you the long list of activities for residents, business owners and visitors to enjoy and what has made Port Credit the cultural hub that it is today.

2020 marks the 17th anniversary of Paint the Town Red. The Port Credit Canada Day celebrations humble beginnings began back in 2004, as a result of a passion for giving back to the community. Emerging from unwavering Canadian pride and gratitude for the opportunity that an immigrant family can live, establish a successful business and be made to feel at home in a village that cares for one another. What it means to be Canadian.

Paint the Town Red, Port Credit’s Canada Day party, proudly boasts as the biggest celebration in the community. It starts in the wee hours of the morning, preparing for the City’s only Canada Day parade, continuing throughout the day with bands, artists and acts performing in a variety of Lakeshore locations and ending with a bang as we set off the largest fireworks display in the region.

As a non-profit, community event, none of the these festivities would be made possible without the generous support of our sponsors, government funding and community partners and our dedicated volunteers, all that are necessary to make Port Credit’s Canada Day what it is. Paint the Town Red is a labour of love, a free family event and it is our wish to maintain free public admission and the event’s sustainability for many years to come.

Thank you for your continued interest, support and dedication to Port Credit’s Canada Day Celebrations.
