POINTE-CLAIRE, August 2, 2017 – The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, Morris Trudeau, and City Council members are pleased to announce that the Government of Canada is awarding a $125,000 grant for the Stewart Hall Cultural Centre’s Geopoetics cultural project, organized by the City, as part of the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation.
“This grant from the Canada 150 Fund will allow us to continue to improve our events, activities, and exhibitions, and to promote and support projects that are increasingly inclusive. Through Geopoetics we can celebrate our country with a diverse program that represents the vision and hopes of our community as part of the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation,” states Mayor Trudeau.
This new contribution was confirmed today by the Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Canadian Heritage. “Canada 150 offers Canadians the opportunity to enjoy unique activities in their communities, and to forge bonds with their fellow citizens of all backgrounds through inspiring local projects. Géopoétique is a wonderful demonstration of how rich our shared identity is.”
