  • A 360 Virtual Video of Parliament Hill
  • Join in the singing of the National Anthem
  • Watch the spectacular film Momentum. Go head-to-head with an icebreaker. Plunge down a twisting mountain gorge. Soar through the clouds in the nosecone of a jet, then speed along with a dog team as it races across a frozen Arctic lake. A sweeping, moving tribute to Canada’s stunning geography and rich cultural heritage, Momentum leaps off your screen—and touches your heart.
