Small communities are very fortunate to have caring and dedicated physicains within our boundries! The College of Family Physicians of Canada proudly acknowledges the outstanding contributions of Canadian family doctors for their dedication to their patients and the delivery of high-quality health care. Family Doctor Week in Canada will be celebrated from November 9-14, which coincides with the annual Family Medicine Forum from November 11-14 in Toronto, Ontario.
This special week also provides an opportunity for governments, health care organizations and other professionals to acknowledge the outstanding contributions made by family doctors to improve the health and well-being of their patients through their roles in clinics, hospitals, universities, and many other health care facilities in Canadian communities.
Take the time this week to "Thank" your local doctors for the job they do!

The tree grates on Main Street are scheduled for some renovations!
Work has begun (September 16) to replace these "plastic" grates with metal grates. In addition, since the initial sidewalk project in 2012, the aggregate (stone looking) portions of the sidewalks have developed a number of cracks and shifting. So, along with the replacement of the grates, these portions of sidewalk will be re-laid with the added support of rebar to keep things stable!
This work will be done one section at a time, and crews are currently located on the north end of Main Street. Please be alert and use caution when your walking by these areas!
Please check back... updates will be made as they happen!
