Subscribe to the weekly newsletter not to miss anything or view regularly the status of activities below:

Christmas market
Cancelled in 2020

In light of the very high popularity of the Christmas market that attracted over 2,800 people in 2018 and over 3,300 people in 2019, and the high probability of a second wave of COVID, the City confirms it will not hold the market this year.

    Exhibition unveiling – Temps Suspendu by Langis Boudreau

    Thursday, November 5 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.  

    Library (1275 Rue du Bois)


    The library welcomes you to enjoy the solo exhibition of Saint-Lazare artist Langis Boudreau. Come meet him during the unveiling of his exhibition held on Thursday, November 5 at the library. Those who cannot attend the unveiling are welcome to visit the exhibition during the library’s regular hours, until November 26 inclusively.

    An anarchist and revolutionary by nature, Langis Boudreau identifies with the group of artists referred to as Les Automatists. In his search for creating flow and movement of colors, he opted for a spontaneous style calling for freedom of expression. His creations illustrate the abstract expressionist influence through which he is able to release his emotions and invite observers to reflect and heighten their senses... you don’t want to miss it!

    No reservation required.

    Positive thinking – a way of life

    Thursday, Novembre 12, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

    Community Centre
    (1301 Rue du Bois)

    Yoga is more than just poses. Indeed, it has benefits for all aspects of life and health.

     

    Positive thinking is at the heart of the practice. Unfortunately, people too often associate positive thinking with a simplistic view of reality. In reality, however, positive thinking is an art that allows each individual to create and live a better life. What is the nature of your thoughts? Are you a slave to your thoughts, or are you in control or them? How do thoughts affect our lives? What tools can we use to better manage them? What is meditation? How do we practice it? These questions will be addressed during this interactive conference on positive thinking. Listeners will find answers, solutions and concrete tools that can help them be happier and contribute to the happiness of those around them
