This is the official site for the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake's Bicentennial Committee. This group was formed to help celebrate Niagara-on-the-Lake's significant role in shaping Canada as we know it today.

From 2011 through 2014 this committee of the town is hosting many exciting events, re-enactments and celebrations to commemorate the historic events that helped form Canada 200 years ago.
