Federal Government Supports Canada Day Events in Sauble Beach

 

Ottawa, ON – Today, on behalf of the Honourable Shelly Glover, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages, Larry Miller, MP for Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound, announced that the Sauble Beach Chamber of Commerce will receive $15,000 in funding for Canada Day celebrations.

 

This funding is being received by the Chamber of Commerce through the Celebrate Canada program and will support local Canada Day celebrations. Through the Celebrate Canada program, the Department of Canadian Heritage provides funding to activities organized in celebration of Canada Day, National Aboriginal Day, Saint-Jean Baptiste Day, and Canadian Multiculturalism Day.

 

Minister Glover stated that: “As we approach the 150th anniversary of Confederation, I invite all Canadians to come out and take part in these events that celebrate our pride, our values and our accomplishments. By supporting events like this, our Government is honouring its commitment to strengthen our communities and to increase public awareness of our history and heritage.”

 

Steve Holler, Manager of the Sauble Beach Chamber of Commerce, added that: “Sauble Beach has been an outstanding social gathering place for Canadians for many years, as many fine memories and new vacation experiences are created here every summer. The Chamber of Commerce and the residents and visitors to Sauble deeply appreciate the support provided by the Department of Canadian Heritage as the Canada Day celebrations continue to contribute to the Canadian social fabric.”

 

“I am very pleased to see that the Federal Government is supporting Canada Day celebrations in Sauble Beach. This Canada Day is especially significant as 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the National Flag of Canada,” said Miller. “I strongly encourage all residents to come out and attend one of the many local Canada Day celebrations throughout Bruce and Grey.”
