The Manotick Village and Community Association




AGMMVCA's Annual General Meeting , June 7
7 PM, Manotick Arena, 2nd Floor

This year’s annual general meeting of your Manotick Village and Community Association is an opportunity for our 560 members to come out and vote for four officers of the board to join the one continuing officer in leading your community association over the next two years. 

The MVCA is looking for an exceptional person to be our VP of Communications.  For more information about the job and its requirements, please contact the Nominating Committee Chair, Mr. Giulio Maffini, at info@manotickvca.org .

Your community association is also looking for members to express an interest in joining the MVCA board as directors.  Directors will be elected by the board officers in the months following the AGM.  We are also looking for people to volunteer their time on one or more of the many MVCA activities, events and projects.  Your MVCA is an all- volunteer community association and we encourage members to help out in their areas of interest.  We welcome members to assist with MVCA events, with our web-site and Facebook page, with reviewing city policy documents and proposals going to council that may affect Manotick, with community-driven initiatives such as MVCA’s road safety program, working with other Manotick groups, representing the MVCA on environmental assessments for planned new roads and widening of existing roads, reviewing development applications and more.  

Please come to the meeting on June 7th at 7 p.m. at the Manotick Arena to learn more about the MVCA, to vote for its officers and to express interest in volunteering.

The MVCA is committed to urge the city to lighten the load on the Manotick bridges and provide improved truck access to the new Vimy Memorial Bridge.  We need your support to make this happen.   Rural residents and businesses who have not already done so are asked to make their views known by sending a brief note to their ward councilor at george.darouze@ottawa.ca or scott.moffatt@ottawa.ca and to me at president@manotickVCA.org .
