June 10, 2021

NORTH GRENVILLE – In response to Premier Ford’s announcement to move into Step 1 of the provincial Roadmap to Reopen on June 11, Municipal staff are preparing to open the doors of the Municipal Centre to the public.

Beginning Monday, June 14, 2021, the North Grenville Municipal Centre will be open to the public during the hours of 9:00 am to 4:00 pm (Monday to Friday).

“We look forward to welcoming the public back to the Municipal Centre,” said Mayor Nancy Peckford. 

“With more than 78% of 18 plus residents in the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark Public Health Unit vaccinated with their first dose, we are eager to start resuming normal operations. COVID cases continue to go down provincially, and it is time to ease restrictions and allow businesses and organizations to welcome and serve their customers in person again,” added Mayor Peckford.

“We want to thank businesses leaders and North Grenville residents for their many sacrifices. This has been an incredibly difficult time for so many, and it remains so. I urge you to be kind to one another, continue to shop local and support the many businesses who have stepped up repeatedly for our community,” emphasized Mayor Peckford and Deputy Mayor Jim McManaman.

Stage 1 also gives the green light for the Kemptville Pool to open for public swimming and lessons.

“Council is thrilled to see that the North Grenville’s outdoor pool in Riverside Park will be operational once again,” noted Mayor Peckford.

Residents will be required to pre-register for a 45-minute swim block. In addition, registration for swimming lessons will open 14 days prior to the start date of each program. More details can be found on the website.

YMCA Summer Camps are also returning to North Grenville. For more information and to register visit the YMCA of Eastern Ontario at www.eo.ymca.ca.

The Roadmap to Reopen is the province’s three-step plan to safely and cautiously reopen the province and gradually lift public health measures.

  • Outdoor gatherings up to 10 people;
  • Outdoor dining up to 4 people per table;
