A Message From the Mayor

Every Child Matters.

September 30 was the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, a federal statutory holiday to honour residential school survivors and the children who never made it home.

Yet, learning about the ongoing intergenerational impacts of residential schools on individuals, their families and their communities – and taking active steps toward reconciliation – is a process I am committed to continuing all year long.  

The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation reminds us that reconciliation starts with education. In addition to information about the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action, the Centre has educational and support resources for all ages, as well as information about gatherings and events in communities across the country. 

As Mayor of Greater Sudbury, I am committed to learning and listening. I will work alongside local Indigenous nations to foster the right relations and partnerships in pursuit of a better tomorrow for every child. 

Mayor Paul Lefebvre

The Spotlight is on Homer

Homer is a 1.5-year-old large mixed breed and is still available for adoption.

He is a cuddle bug and loves to spend his time outside swimming in the pool. He’s great with everyone he meets. He is selective about his doggy pals, so setting up a meeting with your dog is recommended to ensure a perfect match!

Homer shows excellent potential and needs to be with the right family to provide him with consistency.

French Language Services

As directed by Council in April 2022, the City of Greater Sudbury is undertaking a review of its French Language Services Policy. The policy was adopted in 2001, with the commitment to offer services and communications in both English and French.

To ensure we continue to meet the needs of the community, we are looking for feedback about French services offered by the City.

Residents and community partners are invited to provide input by completing a survey on the City’s engagement platform at
