Rendez-Vous #37: Festival du Bois Begins This Friday!

In 1989, after 80 years of significant presence in Maillardville, a small group of very passionate people formed a committee. It was first created to honour those families who came here to work in the wood industry, and to celebrate de French Canadian spirit.
