The Vanier CSC works closely with seniors and partners in order to develop a range of activities and services which counter isolation, increase the residents knowledge by connecting them to useful resources and encourage community involvement and particiation. Since, the Vanier CSC has supported a variety of projects such as the construction of a community garden, a needs assessment, and the organization of the popular lunch-talks pertaining on a variety of themes presented by guest partners. The residents gather in an inviting space, share a bowl of soup and a cup of coffee and take time to discuss and inform themselves on a variety of themes (ex: cyber-fraud, gambling etc.)
With new funding from the Ministry of correctional services and community security, the Vanier CSC now offers a program which inclures outings (ex.: plays and nature outings), intergenerational activities and a series of talks pertaining on themes in link with crime prevention and mental health.
