Since the announcement that the Province has now given the go ahead for Halloween while following safety measures the Council of the Township of McGarry have decided to remove the posting about “Cancelling Halloween “.


The decision to go ahead with the distribution of candies or to go out trick or treating is left at the discretion of the residents.  All residents are

expected to follow the guidelines from Ontario Public Health as well as the guidelines from the Timiskaming Health Unit (this can be found on the Timiskaming Health Unit Facebook page).


The first priority of Council is to try to keep all of

the residents safe.  If the Ontario Public Health or

the Timiskaming Health Unit make any further announcement, Council will keep the residents informed.


Dear Residents,


The McGarry Fire Brigade will be giving out goodie bags to all the children in our municipality. They

will go door to door to deliver it to each and every one who would like their children to receive a

goodie bag. To have your children participate in this event please call the Township office at 705-634-2145 and let us know how many goodie bags you will need, the age of your children and your address for the delivery. They will be starting the delivery at 4:00 pm.


The Firemen would like to see the children dress up for the delivery of the goodie bags so they can take pictures of all the costumes. The Township is also having a colouring contest for the residing children. Drop in at the Township and pick up a colouring page. There will be three prizes picked randomly.

All entered colouring will be displayed at the Township office.
