It is with deep sadness that the Canada Day Committee once again have to cancel our annual Canada Day celebrations at Lamoureux park due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Despite our hope that we could still hold a modified version of Canada Day or even a large community celebration later in the summer, it’s clear that won’t be possible.
Cornwall and Ontario entered Step One of Ontario’s COVID-19 reopening plan on Friday, June 11, which allows outdoor gatherings of up to 10 people. Outdoor performing arts and live music events are allowed in Step Two, while large indoor and outdoor social gatherings and organized public events are prohibited until Ontario enters Step Three, which isn’t expected until late July.
We encourage everyone to celebrate this year in a safe manner following those protocols and we hope to see you next year.
