Why we are proud to be Canadian
The name “Canada” comes from the Huron-Iroquois language and means settlement or village. For us, this holds a great deal of meaning. Our family, like most, are 1st generation Canadians. Our Father was born in Italy and came to settle in Canada when he was only 15 years old in search of a better life…and this is where our story begins.
Embracing the opportunity this free life gave him, our father started in the development side of business which launched our family into real estate in the early 1950’s, making a lasting imprint on Atlantic Maritime provinces that is still felt today.
Our family has enjoyed over a quarter of a century growth in construction and real estate development. This has instilled in us the value of hard work and the importance of a hands-on business approach. We are thankful for the opportunity Canada has given us and continues to give us, and we are proud to be Canadian, where the opportunities are endless and the cultural diversity is empowering.
Canada Day offers a variety of activities to enjoy around our community. Visit Spencer Smith Park for Celebrations on Wednesday July 1, 2015 from noon till 10 p.m.
There will be every activity imaginable including yoga, face painting, a dog show and this year’s headlining artist, Juno Nominee and TeenzFAV Award Winner Vita Chambers!
It’s no wonder this Event was named one of the top 100 festivals and events in Ontario! Let’s not forget the spectacular fireworks show which brings a close to the night.
This Canada Day we hope that you will reflect on what makes you proud to be Canadian and we wish you, your family and your friend’s great memories and a safe holiday. For great recipes & entertaining tips for Canada Day, visit our Rocca Sisters Pinterest Board!
