Proclamations

Proclamations help to create a public awareness of special events and are intended for the betterment of the community. Occasionally the City receives requests from organizations or internal departments to declare or proclaim certain dates for specific causes (e.g. Race Relations Week, International Women's Day, etc.). A proclamation may be issued for a day, a week or a month.

Requesting a proclamation

The City's policy states that proclamations are undertaken only on matters that relate directly to the specific operations of the municipality. Once reviewed and approved the Proclamation will be posted on the City website.

Proclamation requests must be sent to the Office of the City Clerk three weeks prior to the special occasion. Return the completed form to:

Office of the City Clerk Attn: Proclamations
500 Donald Street East, First Floor
Thunder Bay, ON, P7E 5V3

Fax: 807-625-2233
Email: proclamations@thunderbay.ca

 

If you are requesting a proclamation for the first time, please provide details on your organization and the relevance of the proclamation to the City of Thunder Bay. As well, please provide a draft of the proclamation. The Office of the City Clerk reserves the right to edit the proclamation to ensure proper format and grammar.
