To mark Firefighters’ National Memorial Day on Sunday, September 8, flags at all Ontario government buildings, including Waterloo Region District School Board schools and worksites, will be flown at half-mast this weekend.

Where buildings are closed for the weekend, our flags will be lowered at the end of the day today until business resumes on Monday, September 9.

Firefighters’ National Memorial Day was instated by the Government of Canada in 2017 and is celebrated annually on the second Sunday of September.
