Dear Madam Governor General:
On behalf of the Government of the United States, I extend my best wishes to the people and Government of Canada as you celebrate the 153rd anniversary of Canada’s Confederation on July 1.
Canada is a beacon for democratic principles and shared prosperity.

Through the years, we have become increasingly intertwined with strong economic, cultural, and people‑to-people connections.

On this important occasion, the United States wishes you and the people of Canada a prosperous year ahead.
