Recreation

Due to COVID-19, the Town of Conception Bay South will be engaging in virtual Canada Day celebrations, to ensure the safety of our residents while celebrating the country we now call Canada. This year, there are several virtual activities planned, and opportunities for our community to come together to appreciate and celebrate our nation. Please remember to adhere to all Public Health guidelines while participating in these activities.

We would like to encourage residents to take a moment of reflection on Canada Day, July 1, 2021, to listen, learn, and support Indigenous communities throughout Canada. Recognize the strength, and contributions of members of the Indigenous community. Take the opportunity to educate yourself on the histories of Indigenous peoples across Canada, and the long lasting effects felt by the residential school system on their cultures, and lives.

Resources, and educational materials can be found at the following links:

Take a moment of reflection, understanding, education and support.


The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 50 and the Town would like to advise residents that the Legion will be having a private Memorial Day Service at the Monument of Honour on Canada Day. This service will be live-streamed through the Town’s YouTube channel. While we would love to be able to recognize this day with everyone present, we would like for everyone to stay safe, and join us at home for this virtual ceremony.
