Baltic Unity Day

September 5, 2018

Come together on Parliament Hill to mark the annual Baltic Unity Day at 9.00 o’clock on the morning of Thursday, the 20th of September, 2018.

We launched this tradition on 22nd September 2016. The presence of all three Baltic States leaves a good impression of mutual support and solidarity. It will not take much time but it means a lot, and even more at a moment when Canada is exerting such strong efforts on behalf of Baltic Sea security and promotion of trade and business with Europe.

Starting at 8.50 a.m., gather on the left side of the back of the green when facing the main Parliament Building. Bring small national flags to wave and readiness to sing national songs and anthems of the Baltic States joined by the voices of members of our local communities from in and around Ottawa.

Looking forward to see you there!
