Letters of Support and Congratulations

The mayor offers greeting letters to sports, culture, and other organizations for their event programs. Please send an email to officeofthemayor@barrie.ca with the name, date and location of the event; the name of the organization; and any background that would be useful such as how many years the event has been running, volunteer involvement, etc. Messages are often printed in event programs or officially displayed at public functions. All requests will be reviewed by a member of the Mayor’s staff, who will contact you if further information is required.

Request a Proclamation 

Proclamations are ceremonial documents issued and signed by the Mayor to recognize the value and importance of a person, an event, a campaign, or an organization for a certain day, week or month.  Acknowledgement is normally given to reward the efforts and commitment of individuals and organizations that enhance our community and are significant to Barrie residents.  To request a Proclamation for your public awareness campaign, charitable fundraising campaign, arts and culture celebrations please send an email to officeofthemayor@barrie.ca.

Request a Flag Raising

Residents and organizations may request a flag to be raised by the Mayor at the community flag pole in the Courtyard at City Hall for purposes such as recognition of charitable fundraising campaign or event. Requests are subject to availability and other requirements/conditions. Please contact the Office of the Mayor for more information at 705-792-7900 or officeofthemayor@barrie.ca.

Invite the Mayor to an Event

The Mayor regularly attends events, openings, celebrations, and ceremonies throughout the City of Barrie.  

Individuals and organizations wishing to invite the Mayor to an event must first submit a formal request in writing to the Office of the Mayor by email officeofthemayor@barrie.ca.  All invitations will be reviewed by the Mayor’s EA, who will contact you if further information is required.   Please note that due to an extremely full schedule, the Mayor is not able to accept every invitation.  First consideration will be given to requests that are received three months in advance of the event date.
