Canada Day schedule for City facilities

Friday, June 25, 2021

Due to the continuing public health legislative and guidance provisions that Ontario has been following since the mid-April lockdown was implemented, the City was not able to arrange our usual events and activities at the Roberta Bondar Pavilion and evening fireworks show. We are assessing the feasibility of providing a fireworks show later in the summer when public health provisions would allow for it.
The following city facilities and services will be closed Thursday, July 1 for the Canada Day statutory holiday:

Administrative Offices:

  • The Cemetery office, GFL Memorial Gardens, Ronald A. Irwin Civic Centre, Sault
  • Transit office, Fire Services Administration office, Public Works and Engineering
  • Services office and the public libraries will be closed.


  • The John Rhodes Community Centre, the Northern Community Centre, Seniors' Centres and the Ermatinger Clergue National Historic Site are closed.
  • City operated arenas are closed. This includes the GFL Memorial Gardens (open for scheduled vaccination appointments), the John Rhodes Community Centre and the McMeeken Centre.
  • Outdoor recreational amenities, including baseball diamonds, soccer fields, disc golf locations, tennis courts, pickleball courts and skate parks will be open.
  • Outdoor sports facilities, outdoor fitness equipment, playgrounds and outdoor picnic sites will be open.
  • Bellevue Marina and Roberta Bondar Marina are open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
