Montreal's Expo 67 Was A Landmark Moment in Canadian History

Completed in a record four years on artificially-built islands measuring 1000 acres in the middle of the Saint Lawrence River, Expo 67 was a Category One World's Fair and the main celebration of the centenary of Canadian confederation in 1967. The scale and ambition of the project forever changed Canada, as well as the perception of Canada by foreign countries. With over 50 million visitors, the fair broke all previous attendance records and would prove to be the most successful World’s Fair of the 20th century. Still considered to this day the largest cultural event ever held in North America, Expo 67 firmly established Montreal as an international world-class city and remains etched in the memory of all those who visited.
