A day to reflect.

A day to reflect.

Today, and every day, we acknowledge that we work, play, and live on lands of the Anishinabewaki ᐊᓂᔑᓈᐯᐗᑭ and Omàmiwininiwak (Algonquin).

On Canada Day, we reflect on how grateful we are to live in this country and how much we appreciate that this is our home. We also think it’s important to reflect on our history, acknowledge the pain Indigenous Peoples are experiencing, honour their countless contributions to the fabric of this land, and stand with them in mourning. We aspire to leave this country, this planet, better than we found it.

Today, both of our pubs and bottle shops are open, and 10% of sales will be donated to Legacy of Hope Foundation to help contribute to a better tomorrow for everyone.
