Come Home Year

Come Home Year is a civic event for many towns that encourages a return to home town. Due to significant economic migration away from many of the small rural towns these events draw many generations to celebrate.

In 2000, there was a provincial "Come Home Year" in Newfoundland and Labrador where many people came back to visit their various communities.

In 2005, Saskatchewan had a "Come Home Year" as part of the province's centennial celebration.

    Why don’t you go home to your wife? I’ll tell you what. I’ll go home to your wife and outside of the improvements, you’ll never know the difference. Pull over to the side of the road there and let me see your marriage license.
