This is a great overview, I just woke up to it. Of course, they're a day early!

I've booked a quick visit to Montreal to visit these exhibits in late Sept due to this article. Will report back if there's anything worthwhile.

The Biosphere is certainly worth a visit. I like that you can take a picture of yourself and it is instantly made into an email or a postcard. as attached!

I don't think there is anything left. The French Pavilion was stunning and had an exceptional 360 theatre in the middle but it's a casino now.

I'm not sure they've resurrected any Canadian pavilions. But I would be most anxious to see any. I did not see them on my last visit. 2008.

Very little is left of the Canadian pavilion.  The Katimavik was toppled twenty or more years ago.

There's a lot more happening for the 50th that were reported in the NY tImes article - here's a partial list but a lot more is not listed here:

And don't forget to get a copy of the 50th souvenir passeport - you can have it stamped at most of the official activities, shows or museum:

Here's a small sample of the available visas for 2017:
