Canada Day holds different meaning for different communities.  The recent discovery of the mass graves discovered on former Indigenous Residential School lands in both British Columbia and Saskatchewan are part of the truth of Canada’s history.

We encourage all who are celebrating on Canada Day to pause and reflect on both truth and reconciliation and the long-lasting impacts of residential schools on Indigenous communities across Turtle Island.  Learn more about the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action.

Canada Day Old Post Office Projection Project

Thank you to everyone who submitted a photo for the Canada Day-themed projection show at the Old Post Office. With celebrations around Canada Day looking a little different this year and the delay caused by needing to wait until Step 2 of the provincial re-opening plan before displaying the show, we’ve made the decision to save the show for a future date. The plan is currently to use the show for next Canada Day. Thank you again to all who submitted, we look forward to incorporating them into a future event.
