hmc-email-banner-test-1

Here’s My Canada is a multi-lingual, nation-wide con­test invit­ing Cana­di­ans to share what Canada means to them in a 30-second video. Videos can focus on national themes or per­sonal expe­ri­ences and can range from a cel­e­bra­tion of Canada’s accom­plish­ments to a reflec­tion on the work that lies ahead of us as a nation. Videos can include a selfie, an image slideshow, a music video; the pos­si­bil­i­ties are endless!

Par­tic­i­pants can sub­mit videos using our free Instagram-style video-making app, or directly on the web­site. All videos will be shown on our web­site at www.heresmycanada.ca. Par­tic­i­pants will be noti­fied by e-mail once their video is live on the web­site, which will include a link to their video and the abil­ity to share on their social media accounts.
