McDonald's celebrates 50-years in Canada with 67¢ burgers

August 21, 2017

August 21, 2017 This year marks McDonald’s Canada’s 50th anniversary and to celebrate the iconic brand offered Canadians a special gift: 67¢ hamburgers – in recognition of its 1967 birthday. On Wednesday, August 16, 2017 from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm specially priced hamburgers were available in McDonald’s restaurants across the country. Over the last 50 years, McDonald’s Canada has been a place where people, families and communities have come together to share many moments. While it has already been a busy year of celebrations, with the introduction of All-Day Breakfast Selections and launch of McDelivery, this special 67¢ hamburger offer tops things off. In addition, McDonald’s Canada held special events in three restaurants across the country to celebrate brand excitement from coast to coast. 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 featured nostalgic decorations, classic images over the past 50 years, as well as attendance by local dignitaries and special VIPs – and Ronald McDonald himself.
