O Canada in ASL

"O Canada" is the national anthem of Canada. It was proclaimed on 1st July 1980 after it was first sung on 24 June 1880.

Below is one of some versions of the Canadian national anthem interpreted in American Sign Language (ASL).


O'Canada presented in American Sign Language by Dawn Jani Birley.

The English versions have been changed over the past years. Below is the official English version.

O Canada! Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!
From far and wide, O Canada,
We stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

Some variant (based on Dawn Birley's version) for the Edmonton Eskimos kickoffs.
