Italian National Day 2024


The 2024 Republic Day or Italian National Day celebrations opened with the colours of the Italian flag illuminating the striking natural scenery of Niagara Falls on 2 June at 10 pm.

On 3 June, the traditional Tricolour Flag Raising ceremony was held in Queen’s Park, at the Legislative Assembly of Ontario, open to the public, which was present in large numbers.

Special thanks go to the Speaker of the Assembly, Ted Arnott, as well as to all the Ministers of the Government of Ontario and Members of Provincial Parliament who attended the ceremony, as well as the Com.It.Es. (Committee of Italians Abroad), the National Congress of Italian-Canadians, all the Associations and all the Italian nationals who participated, confirming with their presence the friendship between Italy and Canada and the depth of the Italian roots and cultural heritage in the Province of Ontario.

Happy Republic Day, Happy Italian Heritage Month in Canada!
