Updated: Jul 1, 2023

UPDATE: CANCELLATION Due to the smog warnings in effect and the high risk of thunderstorms, it is with great disappointment that the Arrondissement de Pierrefonds-Roxboro Borough have to cancel the Canada Day festivities.


The decision was taken jointly by the Borough and their partners, following consultations with the local community organisations taking part in the parade, who preferred not to risk the health of their staff and volunteers.


Please note that the planned fireworks and pop-up shows will be postponed to a later date, as part of their upcoming activities. Further information will be provided shortly.

They are extremely sorry about this situation, and look forward to seeing you next year. Happy Canada Day to all residents!
