While currently not mandatory in all areas of Ontario, food handler training is encouraged by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care. The health unit works with local food businesses to help meet their needs for training by providing options for learning and specific training aimed at specific groups.”

Wine’d around Downtown


The 9th Annual event is scheduled for Saturday May 28th from 1-5 p.m. and will occur throughout the downtown core.  Last year, the event hosted a record 350 participants. Many of the downtown restaurants are participating and a final list will soon be available.

The T-shirts, which will double as the event ticket, will go on sale at the Chamber of Commerce Visitors Centre and the Thirsty Moose Pub and Eatery at the beginning of April. The cost remains at $25 per person and that includes a free appetizer at one of the participating pubs or restaurants. All proceeds go to support the Carleton Place Sister City Committee’s annual Youth Exchange Program with Franklin, Tennessee and Comrie, Scotland.

BIA members are encouraged to get involved by creating a sidewalk sale in front of their business. Offer pass holders a coupon or small token as they pass through or by your store encouraging them to return and shop.   Take this opportunity to partner with one of the businesses participating in the event and create a partnership.

Please remember, you must wear or carry your event T-Shirt (logo visible) in order to participate. Included in the event passport is a voucher for one free appetizer.

This annual wine and food tasting extravaganza is a fundraising event of the Carleton Place Sister City Committee for the Sister Cities Youth Exchange Program involving Carleton Place and sister cities Comrie, Scotland and Franklin, Tennessee.

World Labyrinth Day Walk


In recognition of World Labyrinth Day a global celebration of all labyrinths join us as we ‘Walk as One at One’ along the grassy path of the recently constructed community labyrinth. Volunteer members of the Labyrinth Committee will be available with information about the history & benefits of walking the labyrinth.

If you are new to the labyrinth experience, this Saturday walk will be a perfect introduction for you. Information about the history, benefits and unique aspects of the labyrinth will be available onsite.


By walking a labyrinth, we are rediscovering an ancient tradition, which is still relevant today. Unlike a maze, a labyrinth is designed as a single path. There are no dead-ends or tricks. The path on which you enter is the same path on which you exit. A walker is free to focus on a thought or a prayer, or to simply enjoy the energy of the walk itself. Many walkers find that the circular pattern holds them in a type of walking meditation long enough to let their problems and worries fall away. In a busy world, walking a labyrinth can provide an opportunity to foster connection, support healing, and promote well-being.

The Community Labyrinth is located at the corner of George and Baines Streets, beside the Carleton Place & Beckwith Heritage Museum. The stone-bordered grassy path is the focal point for Labyrinth Park, a peaceful garden filled with ornamental grasses, native trees, benches for sitting, and a wheelchair-accessible contemplation ring that encircles the labyrinth. The labyrinth was built starting in 2010, and construction was made possible by the Town of Carleton Place, individual, business  & community sponsors, and a Trillium Foundation grant.
