O Canada! Our home and native land! Canada Day may only be one day, but that simply isn’t enough time to show how much we love our country. To promote Canada’s 150th birthday this year, Morguard’s regional offices and properties will be holding different events throughout the month of July. Each week will have a different theme, and everyone is welcome to take part in the fun. All we ask is that you share your Canadian spirit with us! Now, let’s take a look at what we’ll be doing for the next month to celebrate this momentous occasion.
July 4th - 7th: Smile, You’re in Canada
Think about all your favorite things. What brings a smile to your face that only Canada has? All you need is some chalkboard vinyl and coloured chalk to make the magic happen. Place the chalkboard vinyl in a place where lots of people walk through. After that, any Morguard employee is welcome to write or draw something about Canada that makes them smile. When the week is over be sure to send photos to Morguard’s Corporate Marketing team!
July 10th - 14th: Sorry! The Canadian “Hello” Since 1867
Saying you’re sorry is a time-honored Canadian pastime, and there’s no reason to be sorry for that! This week, Morguard will be celebrating one of Canada’s most cherished phrases by setting up board games of Sorry in the lunchroom for employees to play on break. Take photos of yourselves having fun playing the game, and be sure to share them with us!
July 17th - 21st: Be Yourself, As Long As You’re A Hockey Fan
Hockey fans represent! This week we encourage everyone to come into work wearing the colours for your favorite Canadian sports team. On Friday, you can come in wearing the jersey for your team. Be sure to tell everyone about Jersey Day Friday in advance and let everyone have fun representing their team! Just promise to keep the Montreal Canadiens and the Toronto Maple Leafs fans separated.
July 24th - 28th: Free To Finish Every Sentence With “Eh”
Say “eh” for charity! Every time you or one of your coworkers says the word “eh” put a small donation (25¢ or less) in a jar. At the end of the week gather all of the jars together and donate the money to a local charity of your choice. It’s a great way to celebrate your Canadian pride while also helping your community. Maybe your workplace will be the one that donates the most!
At the end of the month, our Corporate Marketing Team will gather all the photos you send to us of the events. These photos will create a picture tree that all Morguard employees can see when finished.
Not a Morguard employee, but still want to take part in the fun? We don’t blame you! Luckily, we are always looking for individuals that represent Morguard culture, and enjoy working with an amazing team of people. From all of us here at Morguard, we hope you have a great Canada Day!
