Cultural Policy

Word from the Director

On behalf of the team, Marie Danielle, Anouchka, Amélie, Samuel and Sophie, the volunteers and myself, it is with pleasure that I welcome you to the Recreation, Sports, Culture, Library and Community Life section of this website.

An important part of our work is to inform residents of Chelsea of new recreation, sports, culture and community life activities as well as services and activities offered at the library. Furthermore, we inform residents of activities offered by Chelsea Community Groups supported under the umbrella of the Chelsea Policy on the Recognition and Support of Community Organizations.

We also offer a range of activities and quality learning experiences which are safe, accessible, diversified and adapted to the needs and characteristics of the community.

For several years now, we publish the activities program "Recreation Zone", which contains the list of courses offered by the Municipality, the Meredith Centre as well as the activities offered at the library and by Chelsea community groups.

The Recreation, Sports, Culture and Community Life Department also offers Community Hall rentals, which are ideal for events such as meetings, workshops, conferences, an event launch, benefit galas, receptions, etc. and all at competitive prices. We also have Sports Grounds to accommodate your soccer games, baseball and hockey matches.

The Meredith Centre also plays an important role in sports, dissemination and development of the arts in the Municipality. The center is however managed by an external organization, Chelsea Foundation. I invite you to visit their website and / or directly contact the center for further information about their activities.

In conclusion, the Recreation, Sports, Culture and Community life Team strives to offer Chelsea residents a program of recreational, sporting and cultural activities as well as community events in order to adequately meet the expectations and needs of a dynamic and constantly evolving population.

Ronald Rojas,
Director of the Recreation, Sports, Culture and Community Life Department
