Canada Day (July 1) is an important community celebration that is supported by the City of Grand Forks. In previous years several models have been used to arrange Canada Day festivities. Often this occurred via a partnership with either the Grand Forks / Boundary Chamber of Commerce or through Community Futures. In recent years, an Events Coordinator, hired through the Rural Dividend Fund, hosted Canada Day on behalf of the City, and in 2021, the Downtown Business Association (DBA) arranged a COVID-19 pandemic limited event.
Given the current trend of restrictions easing across Canada, City staff are working on plans to celebrate Canada Day through seeking qualified partners to deliver the event. Interested parties are be encouraged to submit proposals that demonstrate community spirit, collaboration, and celebration.


The City of Grand Forks is seeking proposals from individuals and/or organizations (the proponent) that are interested in planning and delivering Canada Day 2022 celebrations on behalf of the City. The budget for Canada Day 2022 festivities is $5,000.
