Maillarville turns 100!

Monday, August 17, 2009

If you are thinking of moving to Coquitlam, you should explore one of BC's most unique areas:  Maillardville.

Maillardville, B.C's first and largest settlement of French Canadians, is making history with its 100th anniversary in 2009.  The Centennial celebrations will remind us of a rich history that begins with courageous pioneers taking the long trek by train across Canada to the north bank of the Fraser River to begin anew their lives.

Come to any or all of Maillardville’s centenary events in 2009 to find out and experience this vibrant culture.  As one of Coquitlam’s founding nations and the oldest francophone community in British Columbia, Maillardville is proudly hosting a wide variety of celebratory arts and cultural events throughout the year.  For details visit
