Canada Pavilion

Canada unveiled its national pavilion design for World Expo 2010 in collaboration with Cirque du Soleil, the country said as it signed the participation contract with organizers on Jan. 22, 2008.

The 6,000-square-meter Canada Pavilion, among the biggest at the site, will feature an exhibition themed "The Living City: Inclusive, Sustainable, Creative."

The pavilion is about the size of two-and-a-half NHL ice hockey rinks, said Susan Gregson, Canada's consul general in Shanghai. It is expected to welcome up to 5.5 million people or 30,000 visitors per day during the six-month Expo period.

The pavilion will be anchored by an open public place and surrounded by three large structures. The square will be a performing area, where visitors can watch the performances of Cirque du Soleil before checking out the pavilion, said Gregson.  The overall budget for the Canadian pavilion will be 45 million Canadian dollars (US$43.57 million), she added.

Canada has also given environmental protection consideration into the pavilion. Part of the pavilion's exterior walls will be covered by a special kind of greenery and rainwater will be collected by a drainage system for use inside the pavilion.
