Paint Canada Purple

Since 2014, thanks to the efforts of the PH community, monuments have been illuminated in periwinkle purple on May 5th from coast-to-coast. This has included such landmarks as: BC Place (Vancouver); Calgary Tower (Calgary); High Level Bridge (Edmonton); CN Tower (Toronto); Niagara Falls (Niagara); Ottawa Heritage Building  (Ottawa); Olympic Tower (Montreal), and City Hall (Halifax)!

To ensure that Canada shines brightly in periwinkle purple on May 5, 2020, please help us by sending requests for monuments to be illuminated in your area. The earlier you send your request, the better!

Why not also plan an awareness activity or fundraising event? For advice and assistance on how to get your event off the ground, contact PHA Canada at or 1-877-774-2226.
