The Corporation of the Town of Whitby is committed to recognizing significant dates, occasions and contributions of individuals. Proclamations are a ceremonial document designating a period (special day, week or month) in recognition of such significant individuals, events or organizations.

Requests for Proclamations must be submitted to the Office of the Town Clerk at least four (4) weeks in advance of the event using the Proclamation Request Form.

The Town Clerk will review the merit of each request in accordance with the Town's Policy for the Issuance of Proclamations. Proclamations are listed on a Council agenda for consideration and approval by Whitby Town Council. Once approved, a Proclamation Certificate, signed by the Mayor, will be issued to the organization, individual or community group.
