Expo 67- Centennial Ontario

A big highlight of Canada’s Centennial year was the 1967 International and Universal Exposition in Montreal - better known as Expo 67.

From April to October 1967, more than 50 million visitors experienced innovative architecture, entertainment and other cultural attractions, all under the theme of “Man and His World.” Thousands of Ontarians travelled to Montreal to see the excitement themselves!

The Ontario Pavilion’s 570-seat theatre projected A Place to Stand, a film produced by Christopher Chapman. Featuring the iconic soundtrack composed by Dolores Claman, the film’s innovative editing technique earned it the 1968 Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Subject.
