Celebrating Canada Day as a Proud Local Dealership

Celebrate Canada Day

As Canadians gather across the country, Canada Day represents a time to celebrate the rich history, diverse culture, and breathtaking landscapes that make this nation truly special.

Canada Day traces its roots back to July 1, 1867, when the Constitution Act united the colonies of Canada (Ontario and Quebec), Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick, forming the Dominion of Canada. This landmark event laid the foundation for the nation’s democratic principles, multicultural identity, and shared values. Canada Day serves as a reminder of the country’s journey toward unity and the collective effort that shaped the nation.

As a proudly Canadian company, Ron Hodgson Chevrolet Buick GMC celebrates our beautiful country and the local businesses that drive our economy.

Honouring Local Businesses

Local businesses are key drivers of economic growth and job creation within our communities. When we shop locally, a larger percentage of our money stays within the local economy, circulating through various businesses and supporting jobs. This circulation of income fosters prosperity, stimulates entrepreneurship, and ultimately, strengthens the Canadian economy as a whole.

Since 1978, we have served St. Albert and the surrounding communities with new and pre-owned cars, high-quality GM performance parts, and professional automotive services. 

Acknowledging Our Indigenous Community

At Ron Hodgson Chevrolet Buick GMC, we honour and acknowledge our Indigenous community this Canada Day. Our country’s history is deeply intertwined with the Indigenous peoples who have inhabited this land for thousands of years. Recognizing the importance of our Indigenous community is essential to reconciliation, healing, and building a stronger, more inclusive nation. 

Through collective efforts, we can forge a path of reconciliation, understanding, and equality, creating a future where the Indigenous community of Canada plays an integral role in shaping our nation’s identity and shared destiny.

Celebrating Diversity

Celebrating our diverse country of Canada is a testament to the strength and beauty of multiculturalism. From coast to coast, Canada is a tapestry of cultures, languages, traditions, and perspectives that enrich our society. 

Embracing our diversity means acknowledging the contributions of Indigenous peoples, honouring the heritage of immigrants, and celebrating the countless ethnic communities that call Canada home. It is a recognition that our collective strength lies in our differences, and by coming together, we create a vibrant mosaic of unity and acceptance.
