Official Valley Park Ribbon Cutting

It was exciting to welcome so many residents, supporters, contractors, architects, elected officials, staff and funders to the official ribbon cutting for the new and vastly improved Valley Park Community Centre and Public Library.

I was thrilled to have Councillor Doug Conley join us for this celebration. During his term, he helped keep the project funded and moving forward. I also appreciate the Mayor’s support and participation in today’s celebration.

I wish to acknowledge the support of the Heritage Green Community Trust, who invested $1,250,000 in this project which added two versatile community rooms to the design.

Special thanks to our recreation, procurement, library staff, architects and contractors who worked together to finalize this project. Congratulations and well done.

Please drop in and check out the expanded library and improved community centre.

National Indigenous Peoples Day

To commemorate National Indigenous Peoples Day in Hamilton, the City’s Indigenous Relations office is hosting a celebration in the forecourt of City Hall. 

The event will honour and celebrate Indigenous traditions and culture, as well as provide an opportunity for Indigenous knowledge sharing, singing and drumming.

The City remains committed to advancing truth and reconciliation through the ongoing implementation of its locally-focused Urban Indigenous Strategy. It encourages all residents to take time during National Indigenous History Month to educate themselves about Indigenous histories, strengths and important contributions, as well as the intergenerational pain and trauma caused by the residential school system.

Members of the media and the public are invited to attend. Join Hamilton’s urban Indigenous community as the City celebrates the rich heritage, diverse cultures and the outstanding achievements of First Nations, Inuit and Métis People in Hamilton and across Canada.
