A decorative banner with text that reads  Welcoming Week Unity Walk Saturday September 18th.

Join us the morning of Saturday, September 18th for a walk with your neighbours to celebrate, acknowledge, and unify the diverse residents of our community.

We invite you to meet us at YWCA St. Thomas-Elgin at 16 Mary St. W, St. Thomas at 11am with a flag, banner, or sign that represents your culture or community.

This event is in conjunction with IRCC‘s #WelcomingWeek Sept 10-19. Welcoming Week is an annual opportunity that brings together new and long-time residents to build strong connections. It affirms the importance of welcoming and inclusive places in achieving collective prosperity.

The STELIP team will also have a booth at the Horton Farmers Market from 8-12pm. We are thrilled to be collaborating with a local Indigenous artist, Nicole Arseneault. She will have a collaborative art piece for you to add your mark to and some other fun art inspiration.
