The Mayor receives requests for formal proclamations from groups or organizations wishing to raise awareness or highlight an upcoming event or issue. The Mayor has the authority to designate a specific day, week or month to help raise awareness of these events, arts and cultural celebrations, charitable fundraising or public awareness campaigns that are significant to the Municipality of Clarington.

  • Matters of political controversy, religious beliefs or individual conviction
  • Events or organizations with no direct relationship to the Municipality of Clarington
  • Campaigns or events contrary to law, Municipal policies or by-laws
