National Public Works Week

Every year, Richmond Hill supports its Public Works professionals and those across Canada through National Public Works Week (NPWW) by educating people about how our staff make the community better. NPWW takes place at Richmond Hill's Operations Centre in Richmond Hill and includes three components.

Public Open House and Healthy Yards Event

The National Public Works Week Open House and Healthy Yards Event is a chance for you to meet Public Works staff, learn about what they do for Richmond Hill and how they impact your quality of life. There are equipment demonstrations and kids of all ages are welcome to climb inside the machines to see what it's like to be in the driver's seat! Residents can also visit the Healthy Yards Event to pick up their pre-ordered plant kits and rain barrels, receive a free tree and/or wood chips (while quantities last).

Elementary School Tours

Students learn about Public Works career opportunities when they attend a school tour. More than 400 elementary students visit the Operations Centre annually to learn what it takes to be a member of the Public Works team and the kind of jobs they could have in future.

York Municipalities Public Works Challenge

This challenge invites Public Works staff from nine area municipalities and the Region to join Richmond Hill's team for some fun! It's also a great networking event for staff from across the Region. Teams compete in industry-related competitions to win the coveted Miller Cup!
