STATEMENT BY MAYOR REDFERN TO SUPPORT TOONIK TYME FULL-DAY CIVIC HOLIDAY
Each year residents and visitors of Iqaluit are invited to participate in the Toonik Tyme Festival, which is an annual event that helps to promote and embrace Inuit traditions, as well as celebrate the return of spring.
To encourage all citizens to partake in events, as well as volunteer at the festival, in 2012 the City of Iqaluit designated the first day of Toonik Tyme as our civic holiday. This year, the *full* day civic holiday is on April 13, 2018.
By coming together as community, we can make Iqaluit a great place to live, work and play for all our residents.
City Council and I would like to thank you in advance for your commitment and support of the Toonik Tyme civic holiday.
