A Community Hub is launched in Vaudreuil-Dorion, and is scheduled to open this winter.
The City of Vaudreuil-Dorion took advantage of the second edition of the Community Forum, held on November 22nd at Centre multisport André-Chagnon, to announce important news for the community: the creation of a Community Hub.

The new group will be housed in the Chemins-d’Été building that was acquired by the City a few years ago, which is located at 1255-1257 rue Émile-Bouchard. The building will serve as a permanent home for the Centre communautaire des aînés de Vaudreuil-Soulanges, the Maison des Jeunes de Vaudreuil-Dorion, the Cercle des fermières and the Société de généalogie Vaudreuil-Cavagnal. Other available spaces will be used by the City and the organizations recognized under the policy on recognition and support for cultural, sports, and community organizations.
"The creation of this Hub responds to a need that was recognized during public consultations related to the Family and Seniors Policy and the 2021 Community Forum. Today, I am delighted to show you that your voices were heard. As a result, this place will become a true civic environment where all generations will rub shoulders on a daily basis," said Chloé Marcil, Head of Culture and Community Life for the City of Vaudreuil-Dorion.
The Chemins-d’Été building is located in one of the City's most densely populated areas, close to two elementary schools, senior homes, the CLSC, many services, and the future Municipal Hub. It is a fitting place to host this intergenerational Community Hub. The opening is scheduled for Winter 2023.
