During the COVID-19 pandemic more than ever, our staff at the Town of BWG have provided essential services, looking after public utilities, infrastructure, transportation, public spaces and more. This week we thank them for their hard work and ask you to do the same!

PROCLAMATION: National Public Works Week: May 16-22, 2021


since 1960, the third week in May has been celebrated as National Public Works Week. Municipalities across Canada use this week to educate, engage and inform the public about the essential role public works plays in the quality of life. The theme for 2021 is ‘Stronger Together’; and


public works professionals focus on infrastructure, facilities and services that are of vital importance to sustainable and resilient communities and to the public health, high quality of life and well-being of the people of Ontario; and


these infrastructure, facilities and services could not be provided without the dedicated efforts of public works professionals, who are engineers, managers and employees from provincial and municipal governments and the private sector, who are responsible for rebuilding, improving and protecting our nation’s transportation, water supply, water treatment and solid waste systems, public buildings, and other structures and facilities essential for our citizens; and


it is in the public interest for the citizens, civic leaders and children in Ontario to gain knowledge of and to maintain a progressive interest and understanding of the importance of public works and public works programs in their respective communities.


That His Worship Mayor Rob Keffer and Members of Council proclaim May 16-22, 2021 as NATIONAL PUBLIC WORKS WEEK in the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury.
