DORVAL HOLIDAY MARKET 2022
Mark your calendars for this second edition of the Dorval Holiday Market! A delightful experience, inspired by traditional European markets, that will bring the magic of the Holidays to young and old alike.
Designed around brightly coloured huts housing more than 15 local merchants and artisans, the outdoor venue is decked out with majestic trees and sumptuous decorations, and illuminated by thousands of festive lights. Carollers, elves, entertainers, and even Santa himself will be in attendance to entertain you! (See schedule)
Shop for original gifts made by local artists and artisans while enjoying the enchanting cachet of this ephemeral setting in the heart of the Dorval Village. Visit the Market in the daytime or the evening, warm up around one of the outdoor fireplaces while sipping a hot beverage, and soak up the atmosphere!
The Dorval Holiday Market presented by Caisse Desjardins de l'Ouest-de-l'Île is organized in collaboration with the City of Dorval and Commerce Dorval, as well as by West Island Community Shares, to which a portion of the profits will be donated.
Fridays December 2nd, 9th, 16th: 4pm - 9pm
Saturdays December 3rd, 10th, 17th: 12pm - 9pm
Sundays December 4th, 11th, 18th: 12pm-5pm
THIS WINTER, HELP KIDS BUILD SNOWMEN AND FORTS, MAKE SNOW ANGELS AND HAVE SNOWBALL FIGHTS!
One of the tragic impacts of the inflation that is currently going on is that many low-income families will struggle even more this year to afford warm winter clothing for their children.
That is why West Island Community Shares, in collaboration with BMO BANK OF MONTREAL WEST ISLAND BRANCHES, are raising funds & in-kind donations to provide brand-new snowsuits, hats, neck warmers and warm mittens for vulnerable West Island children.
ANNUAL COMMUNITY BREAKFAST
Le 9 septembre dernier, les directeurs de notre C.A, bénévoles et membres de l’équipe avaient revêtus leurs plus beaux tabliers pour servir nos invités lors de notre déjeuner communautaire annuel présenté par la Caisse Desjardins de l'Ouest-de-l'Île en collaboration avec les marchands IGA EXTRA de D.D.O, Kirkland et Pointe-Claire ainsi que par le MegaCentre des Sources, les Cafés Las Fincas et le restaurant 3 Brasseurs où le déjeuner eut lieu.
Un immense plaisir de recevoir des donateurs, des représentants de groupes communautaires et politiciens locaux tous rassemblés ensemble pour soutenir la communauté!
Merci à nos généreux partenaires ainsi qu'à tous ceux qui sont venus déjeuner avec nous!

SOLIDARITY PIZZA NIGHT 2022
Join us for this second edition of our Solidarity Pizza Night presented by BMO Bank of Montreal, where for every Solidarity Pizza Night purchased, we give a Pizza Night Kit to a West Island family in need.
After another difficult year, everyone can use a break, and what better way than to share a meal with a family in need!
The never-ending pandemic has wreaked havoc on our ability to fundraise the traditional way, and that's why we need to get creative.
Thanks to participants generosity and to the contributions of our wonderful event sponsors: BMO Banque of Montreal, Danesco, Louks Brewery and Saputo, we are hopeful for better days ahead where we continue throughout to provide much needed support to our organizations who provide help to our community's most vulnerable members.
We host fundraising events throughout the year - from the highly glamorous networking soirées to family-friendly events. Join an event that speaks to you and together we'll build a better community.
All proceeds from our fundraising campaigns and events are distributed to more than 40 West Island community organizations.
Your participation helps build a strong, resilient, inclusive and healthy West Island community.
