The City of Corner Brook is looking forward to marking our Canada Day national holiday on July 1st this year. Unfortunately due to COVID-19 we cannot have in-person events, however some things will be taking place and are listed below. Out of respect for our Indigenous community, and the current situation in our nation, fireworks have been reserved for Corner Brook day later this summer.
In addition to City-planned activities, residents can also visit the Government of Canada Website for ideas on how to celebrate at home.
On this particular July 1st we encourage residents to consider our collective Canadian identity, to reflect on our past, and to consider how we can all build a better future. Some resources: Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, Residential School History.
