Vernon city council is asking members of the community to form a committee to plan and organize upcoming and future Canada Day celebrations in Vernon.

The city will continue to provide historic levels of support for Canada Day celebrations including liability insurance for volunteers, the use of Polson Park for the event, tables, chairs, Canada flags, on-site traffic control and other event items.

The city will also increase its annual contribution from $1,000 to $2,000 a year to assist in costs for Canada Day activities, and contribute $10,000 per year toward a Canada Day fireworks display for 2016, 2017 and 2018.

In addition to these contributions, the city will be applying for grant funding from Heritage Canada to support Canada Day activities and fireworks displays.

Interested Vernon residents, societies or organizations that would like to take part in the committee for Canada Day celebrations can contact Maria Doyle at or call 250-550-3572.
