Because every child deserves to enjoy Christmas…

“CREATING CHRISTMAS MAGIC” is a community and family event to raise new toys, gift cards and monetary donations for Vanier children in need. And here is something to look forward…

At Richelieu-Vanier Centre (300 des Pères-Blancs Ave.):

  • Gift sorting, wrapping, and decorating stations
  • The Elves’ Magical Conveyor Belt
  • Card-making stations
  • Holiday music with Fritz Larrivière
  • NEW: Christmas music performance by talented Franco-Ontarian singer Mélissa Ouimet, 1 p.m.

This year, the Vanier Sugar Shack will be transformed into a gingerbread house, thanks to the artistic talents of DeSerres’ COOP students, and supervised by the artist Max Black. The Shack will also host a very special guest…

At the Vanier Sugar Shack (320 des Pères-Blancs Ave.) :

  • Pictures with Santa
  • Reading of the story “Camille découvre Noël (Camille Discovers Christmas)” accompanied by CECCE mascot Camille la Chenille (Camille the Caterpillar)
  • Christmas colouring activities
  • Campfire and holiday music
  • Free coffee and hot chocolate, courtesy of Starbuck


Become a volunteer in the Elves Workshop or simple come and spread the joy by bringing a donation at the toy drive (new and unwrapped gifts, gift cards or money). All talents will be put to good use as we will all live and make the magic of Christmas together.

Thank you to our supporters:
