February 23, 2017 – Guyanese Republic Day

I would like to take this opportunity to extend my best wish to members of the Canadian Guyanese community on the occasion of Guyanese Republic Day.

Republic Day is celebrated on February 23rd marking that day in 1970 when the Burnham government proclaimed Guyana, The Co-operative Republic of Guyana.  The proclamation also severed Guyana’s last significant constitutional tie to Britain.  However, to this day, Guyana remains a member of the Commonwealth of Nations.
