Getting Started

These documents can help you get started with your Local Government Awareness Week Planning. There is a sample proclamation for your use, an agenda for success and resources to assist in getting media coverage for your Week and your events.

Also, have a look at the Activity Ideas on this site to spark your imagination for Local Government Awareness Week events.

If your local government has its own Board of Education, consider a joint proclamation between Council and the Board. If your local government elects a trustee or trustees to a regional Board of Education, a joint proclamation can also work.

As the 3rd week of May is also Public Works Awareness Week, you may want to submit a proclamation for this week too.
