Sixteen months into the COVID-19 pandemic, Canada is facing its second Canada Day under public health restrictions amid renewed conversation about Indigenous reconciliation.

To mark the country’s 154th national holiday, CBC News is featuring a one-hour special hosted by The National’s Ian Hanomansing from Vancouver — the traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations — that will explore who we are as a people, and mark a milestone in the pandemic as people across the country begin to reunite with loved ones.

CBC reporters across the country will join the conversation about what it means to reopen communities after more than a year of public health restrictions, as well as the ongoing debate about whether it is appropriate to celebrate Canada Day immediately following the recent discovery of hundreds of unmarked graves at the sites of former residential schools in British Columbia and Saskatchewan.
