Mission

The mission of the Community Services Department is to make it easier for citizens to effectively use their free time — for leisure activities, play, social commitment and community life – by offering them practical venues suited to their needs, as well as a variety of programs and support facilitating gatherings. This mission is carried out on a daily basis by the department’s three divisions: Culture and Programs, Sports and Programs, and the Library.


At your service

In addition to its director, the Community Services Department’s regular personnel includes a secretary, three division heads as well as a parks and equipment coordinator. It also relies on the support of auxiliary staff consisting of counsellors at the Club Option Jeunesse, as well as a large number of seasonal employees. Finally, more than 500 volunteers active within some thirty organizations round out the Community Services team. The Municipal Library division is described in a separate section.


Infrastructures

The Community Services Department is responsible for a number of infrastructures, including three major parks, some fifteen neighbourhood parks, two school parks, two marshes developed for hiking, as well as a public pool, a community centre and a library. Thanks to agreements concluded with community partners, residents also have access to the gymnasiums of several schools, an arena with two ice rinks and a multisports centre. In addition, the Department has a building housing its administrative offices.


Fields of intervention

Active in different aspects of leisure, the recreation and community divisions offer:

  • a program of seasonal activities
  • the organization of special recreational, sports and cultural activities
  • support to local and regional leisure organizations and committees
  • the reservation of halls and sports fields for organizations and residents
  • support to the community and organizations in matters relating to social, community and economic development.
