Kawartha Lakes will provide a total of $10,000 in Canada Day funding to support seven communities in the municipality celebrating Canada Day. The funding is in addition to the $31,879 in support received from the Federal government through the Canadian Heritage “Celebrate Canada” program.

The following communities will receive funding for their 2019 Canada Day celebrations:

  • Lindsay Canada Day Committee

  • Bobcaygeon Canada Day Committee

  • Fenelon Falls Canada Day Committee

  • Kinmount Canada Day Committee

  • Omemee Lions Club

  • Oakwood Firefighters Association

  • Norland Volunteer Firefighters/Coboconk, Norland and Area Chamber of Commerce

The funding will be applied toward the cost of fireworks, entertainment, promotional and logistic event related expenses.

The “Celebrate Canada” program encourages community members of all ages to come together and discover and appreciate the wealth and diversity of Canadian society.

These community events would not be possible without the generous support of Canadian Heritage’s “Celebrate Canada” program and the numerous community members and volunteers who work so hard to provide these  events in our communities.
