1867 – 1967
Canada’s Centennial of Confederation
Dear Friend of Expo 67:
“Man and his World” is the theme of the greatest world exhibition ever held and the first such exhibition ever to be held in the Americas.
“To be a man is to feel that through one’s own contribution one helps to build the world.” Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
The entire exhibition is designed around the theme. All participants are encouraged to relate their individual presentation to the theme, and the Canadian Corporation for 1967 World Exhibition sponsored by the governments of Canada, Province of Quebec and City of Montreal is devoting more than 20 acres to theme areas alone.
“Man and his World” will unfold the story of Man’s hopes and aspirations, his ideas and his endeavors. The Theme will provide scope for a full inventory of the behavior of Man and his environment and of his ideological, cultural and scientific achievements.
But there is much more than just the educational side of Expo. There is “La Ronde” beer gardens and bistros will be an exciting new concept in amusement parks – be featured along with a “forbidden area” for the more adventurous students.
Montreal colleges and universities will close their doors early this year so that dormitories and private rooms will be available for Canadian and American students at very reasonable rates.
If you have any questions on Expo 67 and the World Festival of the Performing Arts also being held in Montreal at the same time, please do not hesitate to contact us.
The Canadian Embassy, Consulate or Canadian Government Travel Bureau Office nearest you will also take pleasure in assisting you with these questions or others of general interest regarding Canada.
