The city of Rosemère just like a lot of others before it was forced to cancel or postpone a number of its spring and summer activities.

“We are very disappointed by this decision, but in view of the situation we are facing at the present time, we must follow the Québec government’s orders and put the health and safety of our residents first. We usually have a very active community life and always with a large turnout of Rosemerites. Let’s encourage each other by telling ourselves that it will all be back,” stated Mayor Eric Westram.

Although the city cancelled the activities it nevertheless invites residents to check the website in order to view the complete list. The decision on whether or not to hold certain activities has not yet been made, such as the day camps and the opening of the pool and tennis courts.
