We want to thank the residents of Portapique for allowing us into their community last week. We also want to thank the members of the media who attended for their respectful approach to our work.

The Mass Casualty Commission team members found the visit very helpful, giving us important context as we continue our work. 

We expect more than one visit to this community and others in the region, and will let communities know in advance of any visit.

If any member of the community wishes to speak to the Commission please reach out to or call 902-407-7532 or toll-free 1-833-635-2501.
