Mary May Simon
Charles the Third, by the Grace of God of the United Kingdom, Canada and His other Realms and Territories KING, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith.
TO ALL TO WHOM these Presents shall come or whom the same may in any way concern,
Whereas many dedicated citizens have joined with volunteer, professional and industrial fire safety personnel as “Partners in Fire Prevention” in a relentless effort to minimize loss to life, destruction of property and damage to the environment;
Whereas it is desirable that information on fire causes and recommended preventive measures be disseminated during a specific period of the year;
And whereas the 2023 fire prevention theme for this period is:
“PAY ATTENTION TO FIRE PREVENTION. COOKING SAFETY STARTS WITH YOU.”
Now know you that We, by and with the advice of Our Privy Council for Canada, by this Our Proclamation, have thought fit to designate and do designate the week commencing Sunday, the eighth of October, and ending on Saturday, the fourteenth of October, in the present year as
“FIRE PREVENTION WEEK”;
And further, in appreciation of the many services rendered by the fire services of Canada, We do designate Saturday the fourteenth of October as “Fire Service Recognition Day”.
And, during Fire Prevention Week, We do recommend to all Our loving subjects and to federal, provincial and municipal authorities that they intensify their fire prevention activities.
Of all which Our loving subjects and all others whom these presents may concern are required to take notice and to govern themselves accordingly.
IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, We have caused this Our Proclamation to be published and the Great Seal of Canada to be affixed to it.
Our Right Trusty and Well-beloved Mary May Simon, Chancellor and Principal Companion of Our Order of Canada, Chancellor and Commander of Our Order of Military Merit, Chancellor and Commander of Our Order of Merit of the Police Forces, Governor General and Commander-in-Chief of Canada.
At the City of Ottawa, this twenty-fourth day of August in the year of Our Lord two thousand and twenty-three and in the first year of Our reign.
