There won’t be any municipal Canada Day festivities in West Nipissing this year. 

The Municipality says it’s due to COVID-19 restrictions. 

They say this includes the cancellation of the Sturgeon River House Museum’s daytime activities and the evening fireworks at the Sturgeon Falls Beach.  

Officials say while in-person celebrations will not be taking place, those wishing to celebrate can do so virtually, with Canadians across the country.  

They’re also reminding residents to follow all public health guidelines and adhere to gathering limits.
