Remembrance Day - Holiday Closures and Ceremony Information

Event date: 11/11/2020 Export event

November 11 will look considerably different this year. There will be no public ceremony at Central School or any public events at the Legion. A small ceremony involving Veterans and Legion members will be streamed live on the Whitecourt Legion's Facebook page, and the Legion is asking the public to honour our Veterans from home this year. We encourage everyone to stand on your doorstep at 11am to observe 2 minutes silence. We also suggest decorating your windows with poppies to show your respect.  

The following Town operated facilities will be closed on Wednesday, November 11:

  • Town Office
  • Forest Interpretive Centre
  • Whitecourt Food Bank
  • Whitecourt Transfer Station
  • Whitecourt Regional Landfill

Whitecourt Public Transit and Dial A Bus will not be in service.

The Allan & Jean Millar Centre will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.

If you live in the west valley area, waste collection for this week will be moved from November 11 to November 9.  For more information, click here.
