Canada has, fortunately, few enemies … but we have, even more fortunately, some good friends, and none is firmer than Australia.

We have fought beside Australians in South Africa, in Europe, in the Pacific, in Korea and, most recently, in Afghanistan. They are great people to have on our side, in war and in peace.

Australia Day is the official national day of Australia. Celebrated annually on 26 January, it marks the anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the First Fleet of British Ships at Port Jackson, New South Wales, and raising of the Flag of Great Britain at that site by Governor Arthur Phillip.
