TORONTO — To mark 50 years in Canada, McDonald’s Canada will celebrate its anniversary with 67-cent hamburgers.

From 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on August 16th, McDonald’s will offer this special deal at all Canadian restaurants. McDonald’s Canada will also be hosting special events in three restaurants across the country to mark the milestone anniversary. The restaurants are located in Calgary (the first restaurant in Alberta), London (the first restaurant in Eastern Canada) and Dartmouth (the first restaurant in Nova Scotia).

These events will feature nostalgic decorations and classic images from the past 50 years, as well as attendance by local dignitaries and special VIPs.

“It’s amazing to think that a single B.C. location that started in 1967 has grown to over 1,400 restaurants across Canada,” says John Betts, president and CEO, McDonald’s Canada. “This is a true testament to what the passion, spirit and support of guests, franchisees and employees can do. Looking ahead, we’re excited about our future and continuing to share special moments, like today, with Canadians from coast to coast.”
