Cultures Vanier – Cultural Citizen Forum

At every point in Vanier’s history, its residents have been at the forefront of change. Let’s prepare for our future together.  To do so, the Vanier Community Association invites residents to play an important and active role in redefining our cultural landscape. Join us and share your ideas and dreams for our community. Your comments will be gathered and used to develop the Vanier Cultural Strategy. Join us on May 25th, June 15th, and June 29th from 6 to 8 p.m. to discuss, dream and propose your ideas. Your comments will be gathered and will result in a new Vanier Culture Plan.
