MOSAÏCANADA 150, Gatineau 2017
This year, Canada hosted a spectacular event called MOSAÏCANADA 150 to celebrate 150 years of history, values, culture and arts in Canada. When my friend told me about this, we made plans to go there before it ends on October 15, because this is not something that we can visit next year. As far as I know, this is only for this year to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary.
After a month of planning, we finally decided to drive from Montreal to Gatineau to see this enchanting garden. Located in Jacques-Cartier Park, this one-kilometer stroll through 40 fantastic horticulture arrangements left us in total astonishment. All 30 plant-based sculptures representing Canada’s provinces and territories add meaning to all these masterpieces.
Without further ado, let me take you to a fantastic tour.
Representing Quebec! The moment I saw the Quebec flag on the three boats shaped like fleur-de-lis, I knew I’ve reached our province sculpture.

The biggest of all garden sculpture is Mother Nature, but I call it Te Fiti from Moana.
I have so much respect to the brilliant people behind this because they’ve made my childhood dream come true. It was reported that the Quebec government invested about $2 million for this event, so no wonder it was made to perfection. If you are living in Montreal, Gatineau or Ottawa, I would highly suggest for you to visit this place for a once in a lifetime experience. I hope you enjoyed my photo tour as much as I do in person.
