Medical Officer of Health Canada Day Message


As we celebrate Canada Day it is important to reflect on the fact that the strength of our country lies in its diversity. 

From sea to sea to sea, Canadians of all backgrounds and varied origins have come together to create a society that is welcoming to all. 

While we acknowledge the missteps along the way, we learn from each, and use that knowledge to build a more inclusive and compassionate community. 


I encourage everyone to respect others with kindness and caring.

It is May, warmer weather is on the horizon, I hope, and the flowers are starting to bloom. It is a perfect time to celebrate the most important women in our lives, our mothers. During this uncertain time, of great success, but uncertain future, it is critical that we do not let our guard down when it comes to COVID-19.  We have been successful to date, in Grey and Bruce, to limiting the spread and reducing the negative impact that this virus can cause.
