It is with great pride that I welcome you to our lovely City of Beaconsfield as a new resident. In collaboration with other local administrative bodies, the municipal team is completely dedicated to providing you with a healthy, safe and pleasant place to live.

Beaconsfielders have access to a wide range of programs and services. The City provides facilities to satisfy the needs of all age groups. These include Centennial Hall, our Cultural Centre; the Recreation Centre which houses a regulation size skating rink, a semi Olympic size pool, a gymnasium; a youth centre; and an adjacent outdoor skate park; and the Library which attracts large numbers of young and old patrons. Both groups enjoy its large collection of books and e-books, its excellent reference services, as well as its activities, exhibitions, workshops and lectures.

We are proud of the many parks and green spaces in all parts of Beaconsfield. We are completely committed to the principle of sustainable development. Our plan outlines the measures considered most important if we are to attain our goal. Success depends on the cooperation of all members of every household. Each daily activity must produce a positive result.

To learn more about our City, I suggest that you pay frequent visits to our website. This permanent, constantly updated link between the administration and residents provides news, details of our resources, details of our policy and the guidelines we follow, as well as information about the many services we offer to residents.

CONTACT, the municipal newsletter, is another important source of knowledge for residents. It is published nine times each year and distributed without charge to all local homes, businesses and institutions.

I hope that you will enjoy yourself here and that you will enjoy the beautiful quality of life that is offered to you.

Georges Bourelle
Mayor
