There are telltale signs of fall’s arrival – leaves starting to change colour, a touch of chill in the air. Autumn in Ontario is a great season to enjoy being outdoors. A return to school and work for many of us, makes weekends a fantastic time to do things together.
The City of Pickering offers a great example of destinations suitable for friends and family, from the magnificent Rouge National Urban Park with trails for hiking and spotting birds and wildlife along the way, to paying a visit to the Nautical Village on Lake Ontario’s waterfront.

Thanksgiving October 12
As Canadians get ready to celebrate Thanksgiving, let’s not forget the many food banks that depend on people’s generosity to fill their shelves. Many stores offer an easy way to donate in-store when you’re buying your own groceries. You can also make monetary and food donations directly to a food bank.
