And there's much more: Our Ontario150 Awards night on Friday; the Saturday matinée about a young cold-water surfer; Saturday evening's screening features traditional wisdom of rainmakers; an exciting Sunday afternoon shorts program for you to enjoy. See you at the movies!

Let's celebrate the Great Lakes on the 25th World Water Day

March 22, 2017

World Water Day is a time to remember and celebrate water. This year the focus is on wastewater, so it's a great time to give thanks to Toronto Water. 

Coming up soon!

We'll be announcing the plans from a coalition of Indigenous and non-Indigenous partners for the Ontario 150 Great Lakes Water Walk & Celebration.

Led by Anishinaabek Elder Josephine Mandamin, the September 24 event will draw many thousands of Canadians from all walks of life for a trek across Toronto's waterfront, ending in a special blessing – the first step toward an annual National Day of Walking for the Water.

It will be a walk of inspiration, reconciliation and hope.

Watch this space for the date of the announcement celebration. You'll enjoy short documentaries, a talk by Josephine Mandamin and much more.

A short introductory video to the Water Walk.
