Message From the Mayor

Message from Mayor Dave Ryan

I’ve announced my retirement after 22 years as Mayor of the City of Pickering. It’s the end of an era.

I’ve enjoyed lending support to the Pickering Mayor’s Gala for 17 years and together we’ve raised more than $2 million to assist the essential work of our Ajax Pickering Hospital and about 20 other community organizations. I think it’s fair to call that a “Golden Era”. So, that’s the theme of this year’s gala.

Of course, all that has been achieved was made possible by the generous support of our sponsors and the tireless efforts of our volunteers. On my own behalf and on behalf of our community, thank you!

This year we’ll again raise funds for the Ajax Pickering Hospital, as well as Luke’s Place, Durham Region 2023 Ontario Parasport Games and Hearth Place Cancer Support Centre.

Anne & I look forward to seeing you on November 19th as we celebrate our Golden Era.

Dave Ryan
Mayor, Pickering
