VIDEO: Canada Day 2017 celebrations in Headwaters.
150+ Realsons to celebrate Canada in Headwaters
This year, as you dig through your cupboards and drawers trying to round up enough candles to celebrate Canada’s 150th year, we’ve come up with 150 or so realsons to light them up here.
What’s a realson? Well, it’s not a typo, because those happen when you’re rushing things, and that doesn’t happen here. Unless it’s creek water rushing past your lips as you try to drink it, or horses rushing out of the barn, excited as kids on Christmas morning.

Headwaters is where Ontario gets real. And while we have a few ideas what real means, we’d much rather you come find out for yourself. People say it’s how our cooking tastes, our air smells, our people are. And mostly, how Headwaters looks: unspoiled, unpretentious, unlike anywhere else in Ontario.

All those things, they’re realsons. But the biggest one of all is how you will feel when you’re here. We’ve heard it described as renewed, calmer, simpler, and very often, Canadian. On this special birthday year, why not shoot up here for a day or a weekend, and give yourself the gift of yourself – at your most real.

See the sights of Headwaters by Bike
Excitement is building for the third annual Tour de Headwaters cycling fundraiser on September 16, 2017!
Whether you’re local to our beautiful hills of headwaters or a weekend visitor, Headwaters Health Care Foundation invites you to “Pedal for a Purpose” on this third annual ride presented by Brannon Steel.
Tour de Headwaters has not only been a huge success in raising money for much-needed hospital equipment, but it has also drawn overwhelming community support from residents, visitors and local businesses. The response has been incredible,” says Tim Peters, Event Chair. “We hope to exceed 250 riders this year and a fundraising goal of $50,000.”
These fundraising dollars are critical for Headwaters Health Care Centre. Says Nicole Hand, Annual Giving Manager and event lead, “The list of needs continues to grow and it’s not widely known that the government does not pay for medical equipment. Important annual purchases are made through the donations of generous people who live and play in our community.”
Registered participants pay a fee to participate, but also collect pledges from friends and family. In return, riders will be treated to pre-event “fuel-up” snacks, refreshing rest stop treats along each of the routes, prizes as well as a post-ride BBQ at Caledon Hills Cycling shop in Inglewood.
The cost to participate is $50 for adults and $25 for youth under 17. For more information, to become a sponsor or to register today, please visit or call 519.941.2702 ext. 2303.
