Update on Canada Day Activities
In recognition and support of Indigenous community members in our Town and our province, the Town of Torbay has modified the Canada Day activities schedule for this July 1st and will no longer be going ahead with the deck and cake decorating contests schedule to take place on our social media outlets. We are still looking forward to seeing residents take part in the July 1st Drive Memorial Service at the War Memorial from 11am-12pm, and the virtual Canada Day entertainment from 1-4pm on the Town of Torbay’s Facebook page.
We are encouraging our residents to reflect and take this time to inform yourselves and your families on the residential school system and the history of our Indigenous peoples. We stand united with all Indigenous community members as we recognize the injustices done to the Residential School Survivors and those who never came home across the nation.
