Innisfil Hope Tree

The Town of Innisfil has added a ray of light to Innisfil Beach Park, one evergreen tree now stands out among the rest, the Innisfil Hope Tree. Adorned with bright white lights, this tree is unlike any other, a symbol of resilience, perseverance, and hope to focus the conversation on positivity within the community.

Near the Hope Tree, you will find a mailbox and are invited to drop off letters of their hopes for the future. The notes will be collected and then shared through social media to connect the community. Alternatively you can share your thoughts below.

“Just like the individual lights on the tree, our community shines brighter with the support of each other,” said Innisfil Mayor Lynn Dollin. “We know this has been a tough year for our residents and this is an opportunity for our community to share their hopes for the days, weeks and years to come.”

Residents are facing unprecedented levels of stress and uncertainty during the pandemic. Our community’s mental health is suffering, and we are hoping we can change that by encouraging positivity and neighbourliness. Creating opportunities for shared experience and moments of delight and surprise will be part of the solution in supporting residents during the pandemic and beyond.

The Hope Tree will support mental health and community building – two priorities identified by our community during the Town of Innisfil’s recent Community Needs Assessment, conducted to support Innisfil through the COVID-19 pandemic.
