Another very successful Mattamy Homes Canada Day in Barrhaven events.  As President of Canada Day Barrhaven Inc. I would like to thank everyone that made possible, the event would not happen without Vice President of the event John Scholman who also puts in many hours before, during and after the event.

We are also fortune to have a great team including Steven Boucher who keeps our web page up to date and does so much more, Archna Abrol who arranges all the acts for our Multi-Cultural Stage, Mike Boisvert and his amazing team who take care of waste management, Arlene Bomback-Fortin who’s free Kidz Zone was busier than ever, also big thanks to the Ottawa Special Events Peter Gilroy, Chris Munro, Joel Deslaurier and Mike Wood for all they do.  This year we were very fortunate to have be able to hired a summer student through Canada Works, Katie Lilly was a great asset to our team and did an outstanding job.

This event would not be possible without the help of some great volunteers including but certainly not limited to Charlie Cuffari, Wayne Houle, Chris Bartraw, James Gilliland, Anne Christin-Hansen, Allen Gallachiuk, all of our shuttle bus drivers and the many other adults and students that came out and did an amazing job.

Mattamy Homes Canada Day in Barrhaven is a not only a huge organizational event it is also a very expensive event.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors.
