Freedom of the City Reaffirmation

The Freedom of the City Ceremony is a centuries old tradition in which a municipality bestows upon a military unit the freedom to parade in the municipality’s streets (i.e. the Freedom of the City). Though the Corps was originally bestowed this honour back on November 19, 1983, His Worship, Mayor Brian Bowman, will, on behalf of the City of Winnipeg, reaffirm the Freedom of the City for Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps John Travers Cornwell VC, in a ceremony at City Hall, on May 22, 2021.

The Cadets and Officers of RCSCC John Travers Cornwell VC will perform the ceremony, but a division of Alumni will parade with the Cadets and will be inspected by the Mayor (see Dress below).
