Come Home Year is a Canadian civic event for many towns that encourages a return to home town. Due to significant economic migration away from many of the small rural towns these events draw many generations to celebrate.

In 2000, there was a provincial "Come Home Year" in Newfoundland and Labrador where many people came back to visit their various communities.

In 2005, Saskatchewan had a "Come Home Year" as part of the province's centennial celebration.

In 2017, McIvers, Newfoundland hosted a Come Home event that temporarily tripled the town's population.[1]
