Proclamation Request Form

Proclamations are ceremonial documents signed by the Mayor that recognize important issues, social profit events, arts and cultural celebrations, special occasions or honours on a specific day, week or month.

Sample Proclamation for your reference

Please note that Proclamations are strictly honorary and are not endorsements for an event, cause or program. Proposed proclamations may be edited as required by the Office of the Mayor.

Proclamations are issued and declared at the discretion of the Mayor.


Proclamations must meet at least ONE of the following criteria:

  • The requesting organization/sponsoring agency must be a recognized charitable and/or social profit organization;
  • The cause or occasion must be an initiative in the RMWB;
  • The cause must be one of benefit or significance to RMWB residents;
  • The requesting organization must be based in the RMWB and have a local chapter or a locally-based contact representing the organization.

Proclamations are public service documents and are not intended for marketing purposes or commercial promotion. When a proclamation is used to promote an awareness campaign, they must be kept in their original form.

Requests must be initiated by a representative of an organization. Individual or personal requests are not considered. Please include the name and contact details of the requesting organization, all the necessary background information and the date when you need the proclamation. Please note that we require 4-6 weeks to review and prepare your proclamation.

Your request will be reviewed to confirm that it meets the criteria outlined above. The Office of the Mayor may contact you for further clarification.

The Mayor's office will contact you once your proclamation request has been reviewed. 

Generally, the Mayor reads the proclamation at a Council meeting in advance of the date or at an event associated with the cause or occasion. If you would like the Mayor to present the proclamation at an event, please be sure to fill out the Invite the Mayor form.

If you would like a Message from the Mayor for your event, please complete the Request a Message from the Mayor form.
