This isn't about any one of us.
This is about every one of us.
United by our beliefs, our values and our willingness to make it count.
Last year, hundreds of us met at the top of a mountain at 5AM to show Canada what we're all about.
This year, we are taking that spirit from Coast To Coast bringing thousands together across the country for Canada's 150+.
From first light in St. John's to the last sunrise in this country in Victoria, we're doing Canada Day like it's never been done before.
From coast-to-coast we are rallying Canadians to get up and get after it – Chasing Sunrise all across the country.
And we want you out there.
Find your city below and get out with us!

What’s the “+”?
The plus stands to acknowledge the Indigenous peoples who have been here long before Canada was, well, Canada. It represents our understanding that there is a history to the land we are on – a history that predates colonization.
It is our commitment to look into the future with a hope that all communities, Nations, and peoples will walk together as a stronger society than ever before.
Think of it as a mark of what we hope to achieve going forward – a community that not only looks towards a bright future, but does so while recognizing the past that brought us to where we are today.

Some topics around this event we want to openly address.
We know there are topics around nature, safety, and Indigenous land & people that are impacted by the events we put on and that impact can go beyond more than just those who are directly involved.
While we know we don't have all the answers to them, we are an organization that is willing to stand and have constructive conversations on how we best go about solving them.
We have laid out our thoughts on many of them and are open to having a conversation with anybody that has a stake in them.
You can our thoughts below and we look forward to having a conversation about them.
