Canada Day is a day where Canadians come together and celebrate their shared values of diversity, inclusivity, and multiculturalism. As we unite on Canada Day and celebrate what it means to be Canadian, it's the perfect moment to honour the incredible commitment of Ontario's top athletes who proudly represent Canada on a global stage.
