The Brockville Museum’s mandate is to capture Brockville stories. As we are currently living through a major event in history, we have the responsibility to record these events for future generations. We are reaching out to the community to gather the local stories and experiences of the Covid-19 pandemic. Throughout the pandemic, Ontario businesses have supported their communities by helping in various ways to stop the spread of Covid-19. As a local Brockville business, we would love to hear from you about your experiences during these challenging times. We have prepared a brief questionnaire which will be placed in our research files for future research/exhibit purposes.  We hope that you will take a moment to complete this questionnaire and return it to the museum by email or mail.  Thank you for being a part of history!
