Engage for Change

Community Calendar

Stopping the spread of COVID-19 is a team effort, and for most of us, our way to contribute is to stay home. If you are not an essential worker, limit your trips out as much as you can. You’ll be protecting everyone. We’re all in this together, #ygk! For information on changes to City services, visit the City’s COVID-19 webpage.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Welcome to the Engage for Change Community Events Calendar! Members of the community are invited to submit upcoming Indigenous cultural events using the “Add Event” link in the right-hand menu. Submitted events will be reviewed for clarity and content by a site administrator and posted publicly on the calendar.

Although this calendar is managed by City of Kingston staff these events are not run by the City of Kingston unless expressly indicated.

Any questions about individual events should be directed to the event organizers. Those submitting events should keep this in mind when providing the information for your event.

We are grateful for the opportunity to share and facilitate this digital space for the community!
