Dear citizens,
It is with great pleasure that I present to you our autumn edition of the
Leisure Guide, which includes Culture Notes in the centre fold and contains
information on cultural, sports, leisure, and community development
activities available throughout the fall.
MORRIS TRUDEAU
Mayor
The MULTI card, free of charge for residents, is now required to register for
and participate in City activities. It replaces the Library card and constitutes
proof of residence that will give you access to a number of City services,
including the Ecocentre. The MULTI card is issued at the Central Library
and at the Aquatic Centre on presentation of proof of identity and proof of
residence.
We invite you to take a look at our new website, which was redesigned as
part of our ongoing project to improve services to residents. Its design,
architecture and content have been modified to better meet the needs
of our citizens. New features – including an interactive map, a residential
address search tool, a powerful search engine, and an upgraded calendar of
events – make navigation easy and enjoyable.
The website includes interactive versions of the Leisure Guide, Culture
Notes, and the City newsletter. You can quickly browse through these
publications online and reach a City department or partner organization with
a single click.
On behalf of City Council, we hope these improvements will make it easier
for you to find information you’re looking for and more!

EXPOSCIENCE 2016 –
33rd edition
This interactive science exhibition, geared toward both kids and
families, aims to demystify science and show how interesting
it can be. A number of scientific fields will be represented
throughout the weekend, including physics, engineering,
biology, and many more. This popular event features
interactive science displays that will amaze both young
and old! Children and adults can conduct science experiments
and perhaps find answers to those nagging questions.
