“touched by subtle humor and the deft color of a distinctive folklore, the Canada pavilion draws its visitor into a world that is both different and familiar. Multi-cultural in its origins and in its subsequent development, Canada today has just stepped into its second century of national life”. (HemisFair Guidebook, 1968)
This pavilion also featured a multi-screen theater which showed visitors the history of Canada and its people.
