To all the fathers in Orléans, I hope you had a lovely Father’s Day on Sunday, surrounded by your loved ones.

June marks Filipino Heritage Month, Italian Heritage Month, and Portuguese Heritage Month, as well as the beginning of Pride Season. Let’s celebrate their rich cultural heritage and their ongoing contributions to building a stronger, more vibrant, and more inclusive Canada.

From June 9 to June 15, we celebrated National Public Servant Week. I want to thank all the dedicated public servants in Orléans and across Canada for their vital work. Your dedication, commitment, and hard work to deliver services that we depend on are very appreciated.

This June also marked 80 years since D-Day and the beginning of the Battle of Normandy. It was a privilege to attend the commemoration ceremonies in France and meet with 10 veterans that participated in the liberation. Let’s remember our heroes and thank our veterans and current members of the Canadian Forces for their service.

On June 8, I co-hosted with Congo Excellence Canada an awards ceremony on the Hill. It was simply fantastic to welcome the Congolese diaspora to celebrate excellence in sectors such as education, entrepreneurship, arts and culture, community engagement, and much more.

This week is the beginning of graduation season, and I want to take a moment to congratulate the 1,905 graduates from Orléans’ 10 high schools. It is also the end of a chapter for our Grade 12 students. I hope you enjoy your graduations and proms! I had the privilege of sharing my best wishes on this milestone at two celebrations as well as through personally signed congratulatory certificates.

Starting June 27, eligible individuals with a valid disability tax credit certi-ficate, as well as eligible youth under 18, can apply for the Canada Dental Care Plan. You can find local providers registered at

This is my last column before Canada Day, and I am taking this opportunity to wish you all festive celebrations. I was pleased to announce to the Kiwanis Club of Orléans a federal grant of $8,000 to help with their Canada Day celebrations on July 1 that will be held at Millenium Park this year. We hope to see you there to enjoy activities for the whole family. Please stop by our booth! Happy Canada Day, Orléans!
