Every July 1st, Canada rings in another birthday. Across the country, crowds of Canadians spend a day in the sun then marvel at fireworks, many waving that signature red and white flag. This year, Canada turns 153 years old. We celebrate what it means to sew colourful thread after colourful thread into our rich tapestry. What it means to strive for unity and inclusivity. What it means to be Canadian.
As parts of the country open in stages, it's too soon to ditch physical distancing. In April, the federal government announced this year's Canada Day celebrations will take place online. In municipalities across Canada, citizens will be watching their screens instead of hitting their streets. Here are a few of many upcoming events:
- Toronto will turn to community partners Harbourfront Centre, TOLive and the CN Tower for virtual tributes to frontline workers and neighbourhoods
- Montreal will livestream artistic performances from its Olympic Stadium
- Vancouver will host virtual performances, dance lessons, and a rodeo tribute
- Calgary will offer a virtual concert featuring homegrown artists
- Halifax will celebrate with virtual parades and parties
Our investment management teams are researching, trading, redesigning, and constructing portfolios without missing a beat. All remotely. All securely. All at a very high level. They're making more phone calls and video calls to one another and the companies we invest in. They're continuously connecting with clients and guarding their investments.
Across TD, advisors are having meaningful conversations with Canadians about the future. They're inspiring confidence in female investors. They're encouraging legacy discussions within families. They're acknowledging clients' circumstances and really listening to their concerns. They're proven experts. And they're empathetic.
From thousands of employees in home offices, to hundreds of branches that are safely servicing clients, we get the job done. This isn't always an easy environment, but we navigate it with optimism. As long as we remain flexible and connected, we'll continue to support a range of financial capabilities and goals.
Like Canada, we are working towards a better, brighter day. No matter how quickly or wildly things change, there is always a reason to celebrate. And we look forward to that.
Happy Canada Day from TDAM!
