Banner Program

A Community Enhancement Initiative...

All grassroots creative individuals welcome!  Banner painting is extremely easy to do especially with the guidance of our on-site artists who will help coordinate and advise you. This is a great creative activity for adults, children, non-profit organizations and businesses.

Banners are installed once the winter seasonal banners are taken down, in early spring 2020, and are displayed until the following December.  Banners are displayed on city streets for everyone to enjoy.

2020: Highlight your creative talents and celebrate the 135th Anniversary of the completion of the Canadian Pacific Railway.
