To mark a special Canada Day this year the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 85 will hold a ceremony.

As Canada prepares to celebrate its 150th birthday, the Kapuskasing Royal Canadian Legion prepares for their annual Canadian Flag Raising Ceremony on July 1st.

The flag raising is to take place in front of the Civic Centre from 11:00am to 12:00pm on Canada Day.

It is a free event in which everyone in attendance is welcome to join afterward at the Legion for coffee and cake following the ceremony.
