The Canadian Walk for Veterans, which began in White Rock, is happening in more than 70 cities in Canada and beyond on September 26 and 27.
This virtual event encourages all participants to get out into the community and walk, run, bike, do push ups or burpees or do any other exercise they can think of, thank a first responder, military member, veteran, or dedicate your effort to those in service! 

Donations will go to Courageous Companions, providing quality trained service dogs to military veterans and first responders.
Visit canadianwalkforveterans.com.

The Canadian Walk for Veterans was created for Canada's veterans and first responders and to recognize the contributions, challenges and sacrifices made by them and their families: military, police, fire fighters, emergency health service providers etc

The Restrictions for non-essential vendors at BC Farmers' Markets have now been lifted. We have missed you terribly.

All jewelery, soap, artisans, crafters, flowers, plants, cat/dog treats, and other non-essential vendors will now be allowed to sell at the Market.

We welcome you back, the plan is to continue with the approved dates given to you. The site will still have to be managed with Physical Distancing Measures in place and a reduced on-site footprint due to the Bosa development at the South end of the Marketplace. We have extended along the blue fence line and the South side of the Community Centre; also the West of Russell Ave towards Foster Street entrance.
