Our New Website – June
Welcome to Clyde River’s New Website. We are excited to share with you, our residents, businesses and stakeholders, some of the events and activities that are taking place in our community. We are also keen on showcasing the work that our dedicated staff provide to make this community a spectacular place to live and grow.
This month is the beginning of a series of celebration despite the constraints that COVID-19 has placed on our community. 2020 is a momentous year for residents in Nunavut as this year’s Nunavut Day will be the first time that the holiday is extended to everyone in the Territory. Our Hamlet will also celebrate Indigenous People’s Day, Canada Day and Hamlet Day in a few weeks’ time.
Our Recreation Department is putting together programs that take into consideration appropriate social distancing measures while at the same time ensuring that residents have fun, food and much excitement. The events will showcase what our community has to offer – from our cultural diversity, rich history and heritage, vibrancy and prosperity.
To ensure our entire community can join in the celebrations, we have accessed grant funding from several sources including Nunavut Tunngavik Inc (NTI), the Government of Nunavut and the Federal Government. On behalf of Council, we would therefore like to express our deepest gratitude to our sponsors for their continued support in promoting and preserving our culture.
I encourage you to check out these programs and events elsewhere on this website. We look forward to seeing you as you join us celebrate summer’s arrival with all these festivities.
