WHEREAS,  Operation Smile Canada is a global medical charity providing free, life-changing surgeries and medical care to children born with cleft conditions around the world; 

AND WHEREAS, Every 3 minutes, a child is born with a cleft condition, and lack of access to safe, effective surgery means that easily treatable conditions like cleft lip and cleft palate can become fatal. Operation Smile Canada believes every child born with a cleft condition deserves exceptional surgical care; 

AND WHEREAS, The Longest Day of SMILES® will unite Canadians from coast to coast to coast as they raise awareness and funds to support this important cause. 

NOW THEREFORE, I, Keith Hull, Acting Mayor of the Town of Collingwood,

DO HEREBY PROCLAIM June 19, 2022 as  “The Longest Day of SMILES®” in the Town of Collingwood.
