The Transcona BIZ Canada Day Celebrations are supported by Canadian Heritage, under the Celebration and Commemoration Program, Celebrate Canada Component, and TD Bank Group.
Bon Anniversaire, Canada! We are once again calling all you Canucks to get off your chesterfields and show your best Red and White pride. Transcona BIZ is grateful for the generous funding by Canadian Heritage and TD Bank Group to make these Canada Day Celebrations possible.
We are so excited to host the 2nd Annual The Great Transconian Canada Day Scavenger Hunt in partnership this year with the Transcona Museum! Due to the overwhelmingly popular response from last year’s event, we’re back at it again. Whether you take the hunt solo or gather a team together to get ‘er done, the hunt around the Transcona Business Improvement Zone streets is on! Individuals/teams that answer all questions correctly will be entered into a draw to win prizes including gift cards to local Transcona BIZ businesses.
Check back soon for the official rules, questions and scavenger hunt registration form. Once you are pre-registered, you can pick up a free Canada Day Celebration Kit directly from the Transcona BIZ Office at 108 Bond Street on Friday, June 27th, 2022 between our office hours of 9:00am – 4:00pm. Kits are in limited quantities so make sure to register early to score one of these beauties while supplies last, eh?!
In addition to The Great Transconian Scavenger Hunt, we encourage you to keep your eyes peeled for Canada Day Themed Rocks that will be hidden throughout our beautiful Transcona Business Improvement Zone streets! The rocks
will be hidden on June 30th, 2022, and if you find a rock, follow the directions on the back to claim your prize! You have double the chance to win this year, good luck, and happy searching!
