Dear residents:​

​I would like to begin by thanking you on behalf of City Council and myself for renewing your trust in us. We will continue to work with great pride and enthusiasm to constantly improve how we meet your needs and expectations.

After the huge success of last year’s gift giving, we did not hesitate to invite Santa back again. And to our delight, he will return to NDIP on December 4 and 5, along with Mrs. Claus and the elves. They will tour the streets of our beautiful city to visit your homes and give a gift to your children. I have such wonderful memories of last year’s event. Smiling children, sparkling eyes and emotional parents and grandparents as Santa’s float passed by. Don’t miss this happy event this year. Register your children on the city’s website by November 21.

The holiday season is also a time of sharing. This year, the traditional food drive will take place on the same weekend as the gift giving event. Another team of elves will follow Santa’s float to collect donations of money or food. I encourage you to fill a bag with non-perishable food and give it to the food drive volunteers as they pass by or leave it in plain view in front of your home. You can also drop off your donations at the Marie Uguay Library, City Hall or the Centre Notre-Dame-de-Fatima from November 22 to December 16. Your donations will ensure that families have a more joyous holiday season. On behalf of the members of Council, thank you for your generosity.

Your mayor,
