In a statement today, Mayor Fred Eisenberger confirmed that all City-run and SEAT (Special Event Advisory Team) events and facility bookings are cancelled through to July 2 as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 situation.
“We will not take any bookings for at least that time period until we have a better sense of what the reopening plan looks like,” said the mayor.
This includes the cancellation of Canada Day celebrations, and city staff is working on a plan for virtual Canada Day celebrations.
Additionally, the City’s Emergency Operations Centre has directed Hamilton’s Fire Chief not to issue permits for the sale or display of fireworks through to July 4, 2020.
