    • Legislative Building, 111 Wellesley St W Toronto, Ontario

    Did you know that the Province of Ontario celebrates Dutch Heritage Month? Ontario, and Canada as a whole, has strong ties to The Netherlands -- in addition to liberating the Dutch in WWII, Ontario is home to more than 500,000 citizens who have Dutch roots and The Netherlands is the third largest investor in Canada after the US and the UK. Each year, Ontario recognizes and honours this special bond, proclaiming the month of May as Dutch Heritage Month. 

    The Dutch Heritage Month will kick off with the annual Flag raising ceremony in Queen's Park in Toronto on May 2, starting at noon. The event is open to the public and will be hosted by the Consul-General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Anne Le Guellec.

    Notes: This is an outdoor event so please dress for the weather
