The Canadian Tulip Festival

The Canadian Tulip Festival started in 1952, and since it is continually held in Ottawa the capital of Canada. Thousands of Tulip flowers are spread everywhere over the city during the festival that holds various kinds of culture events.

The festival has an historic background: During WWII the royal Dutch family escaped from Holland and found a shelter in Ottawa. When the queen, Juliana, returned to Holland in 1945, she decided to thank the Canadian people for hosting the royal family and sent Ottawa 100,000 Tulip tubers.

Canada background and overview
A land of vast distances and rich natural resources, Canada became a self-governing dominion in 1867 while retaining ties to the British crown. Economically and technologically the nation has developed in parallel with the US, its neighbor to the south across an unfortified border. Canada's paramount political problem is meeting public demands for quality improvements in health care and education services after a decade of budget cuts. Canada also faces questions about integrity in government following revelations regarding a corruption scandal in the federal government that has helped revive the fortunes of separatists in predominantly francophone Quebec.

  • Summer Holiday 2018

    This would be a 65 Years celebration anniversary for me  to remember forever as am to be 65 on May 18, 2018. I am looking forward to this week of holiday in our beautiful capital of Ottawa.  I have been working for years as a nurse in Sudbury Ontario with no holiday. As I learned of the donation of bulbs from Holland’s queen Juliana in 1945, It profondly describe how our Canadian cultures portrays this beautiful land of ours and it’s residents, also the safe haven for so many people of the earth that included Queen Juliana and her family at one time in history. Because of her recognition of safety on our land, we today are fortune to enjoy such festival of natural colours of blooms that warms our hearts yet today.   I am planning a trip to Ottawa for this festival with pleasure and joy.   I will be seeing you in the spring.  Vivianne Leger
