Each year, the Town of Canmore is able to host the Canada Day parade thanks to the help of a dedicated crew of volunteers. Want to join us on July 1? We would love to have you! 

Our volunteers will be working outside on July 1 along the parade route and at the Canmore Recreation Centre.

Volunteer with us!
