Cannington Canada Day Festival 2021 Cancelled

The Cannington Lions Club has decided to cancel the 2021 Canada Day Festival and Car Show.  Each year this event requires significant planning and the continuing COVID restrictions have caused difficulties performing that work.

The Club and the organizing committee is also concerned about the ability to maintain public health safety at such a large social gathering.  While vaccination efforts continue it is obvious that there will be insufficient widespread levels of safety in time for this year's event.

The Cannington Lions Club and its Canada Day Committee apologize for this unfortunate turn of events.

A very big congratulations to the many students at McCaskills Mills PS who took part in the first Lions Effective Speaking Contest sponsored by The Cannington Lions Club. A thank you as well goes out to the staff at MMPS who helped organize and run the event. And lastly a big thank you to the judges who had a very hard time picking the winners of the contest in both the Junior and Intermediate levels.

The winners in each category were:
1st Place: Liam Benge

1st Place: Gibby Polmans

First place winners will go on to The Lions District Effective Speaking contest in Markham on March 23rd.

Every student who took part showed courage and maturity in just choosing to try and speak in front of an audience (many for the first time). All of these students should be very proud of what they did. The Cannington Lions Club sincerely hopes they all try again next year.... practice makes perfect.


The Cannington Lions Club is planning to develop a formal vision for MacLeod Park which will be adopted by The Township of Brock. The vision will layout amenities to eventually form a new and enhanced parkland for residents to enjoy. The Club is looking for your input. An open house will take place at The Cannington Lions Club on February 19th where information will be available as well as input from residents gathered. We are also welcoming input via a survey available on The Township of Brock's website. Please help us develop a vision for MacLeod Park to guide future projects and fundraising efforts. It's your park and your Cannington Lions Club wants to help improve it.

More information will be posted here shortly about this exciting community project.
