Suspension of Old Nemaska Gathering Until Further Notice

June, 27 2023

Dear Residents,

It is with a heavy heart that we write to inform you of the temporary suspension of the Old Nemaska Gathering until further notice. Considering the current circumstances, it is disappointing to have to postpone this cherished event that holds great cultural significance for our community. This decision has been made in light of the prevailing forest fires situation. We understand the disappointment and frustration this may cause, but it is crucial that we prioritize the safety and security of each and every member of our community.

Rest assured, we are actively monitoring the situation and will communicate the new dates for the Gathering as soon as possible. In the meantime, we encourage you to remain vigilant and follow all safety guidelines provided by the Public Health and Safety Department. Your cooperation in adhering to these precautions will greatly contribute to safeguarding our community from potential harm.

Thank you for your understanding, support, and cooperation during this challenging time. Together, we will overcome this adversity and come out stronger as a community.
