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.
The Mayor offers greeting letters to sports, culture, and other organizations for their event programs. Please ensure you have additional information such as: 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.
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.
The Mayor and Deputy Mayor regularly attend events, openings, celebrations, and ceremonies throughout the City of Barrie. Individuals and organizations wishing to invite the Mayor/Deputy Mayor to an event must first submit a formal request in writing to the Office of the Mayor and/or complete and submit the Invitation Form.
All invitations will be reviewed by the Mayor’s staff, who will contact you if further information is required. Please note that due to an extremely full schedule, the Mayor and Deputy Mayor are not able to accept every invitation. First consideration will be given to requests that are received well in advance of the event date.
