A Message from Mayor and Council

The Village of Salisbury passes along our deepest sympathies to those touched by the recent, and tragic, discoveries at residential school sites throughout Canada.
It is out of deep respect for our First Nations that the Village has chosen to postpone all virtual Canada Day celebrations originally planned for July 1st.
While there are so many reasons to celebrate Canada, this year marks an important opportunity to reflect and educate ourselves on Canada's history.
When the time is right, we look forward to the opportunity when we can join together as a community and enjoy the beauty we are blessed to have in our area.
As a tribute to the young lives lost in these residential schools, the Village of Salisbury Municipal Building will be illuminated in orange from June 30th to July 4th.
