Canada Pavilion is about the size of two-and-a-half NHL ice hockey rinks. And it is expected to receive up to 5.5 million people or 30000 visitors every day during the six-month shanghai 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. Cirque du Soleil was founded by Guy Laliberte, a member of a ragtag band of street performers from the Canadian province of Quebec in 1984. Cirque du Soleil created the concept design for the Canada Pavilion. And it will also create public performances, organize cultural programs and develop strategic corporate alliances for the pavilion.

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.

The overall budget for the Canadian pavilion will be 45 million Canadian dollars (US$43.57 million).
