Consultation has concluded

In December of 2020, the Town of Innisfil 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 was unlike any other, a symbol of resilience, perseverance, and hope to focus the conversation on positivity within the community.

Goodbye for now, but don't give up hope as the tree will reappear next year!

On March 31, 2021, the Hope Tree will go dark till next year! This doesn’t mean we stop hoping and as Amanda Gorman said, “For here is always light. Only if we are brave enough to see it. If only we're brave enough to be it.”

To have hope is to believe. It not only can help make a tough situation more tolerable but also can eventually improve our lives because envisioning a better future helps us move forward. Hope has a way of keeping you going. Hope motivates you to push right through when difficulties give you every reason to pause. Hope tells you you’re one step closer even when you feel you will never get there.


The Community Needs Assessment identified mental health as an important focus for residents. The Hope Tree represented just one of many initiatives meant to keep spirits up by giving residents more options to get outside and focus on positivity.

The Hope Tree project was a joint collaboration of the Town of Innisfil and Innisfil ideaLAB & Library and is proudly supported by Council and will return next year.
