Activities Program

This brochure is published three times a year and provides information on sports and community activities, swimming lessons, free activities and those offered by Centre Multisports. It also contains the directory of social and cultural organizations.

Winter 2021

The uncertainty related to the COVID-19 pandemic regarding the winter activities proposed by the City of Vaudreuil-Dorion and its organizations does not allow us to produce the usual activities brochure, which is delivered to citizens every season.
