Victoria Day Weekend

Brothers and Sisters,

On behalf of the Atlantic Canada Regional Council Executive and Delegates, I want to wish you and your families a Happy Victoria Day weekend.  

Thankfully, the weather forecast for Atlantic Canada is predicting warmer temperatures for us all this weekend.  I hope you get the opportunity to spend time outdoors with family and friends. For those of you travelling on the highway for work or camping, be extra careful with the increased traffic.

Have an enjoyable and safe long weekend!

Through the Foundation, all donations contribute to the purchase of the latest in modern medical equipment, the continued education of Janeway Hospital staff, and the research and programs directly related to our children’s health and welfare.
