Artefacts needed for Burlington time capsule

Published July 11, 2023 at 9:36 am

Items, mementos and other artefacts are needed for a City of Burlington time capsule.

The project, part of the City’s 150th anniversary celebration, will see the items tucked away to be opened several years down the road for the interest of future generations.

It’s not a big project — only seven items will be included in the capsule — and each will represent one of the City’s political wards and one that reflects the entire City.

Residents interested in making a suggestion for an item are asked to contact the Mayor’s Office with:

  • A detailed description of an artefact/object or a photo of an artefact/object they own and are willing to donate to the City of Burlington; and
  • A line or two on why they feel this artefact/object best represents either the ward they live in OR the city, as a whole.

You can submit your suggestion either by emailing [email protected] with the subject line “Burlington 150+ Time Capsule” or sending a letter to the Mayor’s Office mailed to:

Burlington City Hall – Mayor’s Office, 426 Brant St. Burlington, Ont. L7R 3Z6

Do not drop off any items at City Hall or other City of Burlington facilities, as they will not be accepted.

The Mayor’s Office team will review the submissions we receive by email or regular mail and select the 7 items that will be unveiled at an event sometime in fall 2023.
