Firefighters' National Memorial Day

Flags at Half Mast for Firefighters' National Memorial Day
Posted on 09/10/2021
Flags at all Ontario government buildings and establishments across the province will be flown at half-mast from sunrise to sunset on Sunday, September 12, 2021, to mark Firefighters’ National Memorial Day.

The Government of Canada has declared the second Sunday of September as an annual solemn day of honour as firefighters across Canada are recognized for their sacrifice, dedication, and bravery. 

The Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board joins government buildings and establishments by lowing our flag to commemorate the courage, selflessness, and unwavering commitment by the brave men and women who serve our communities.
