The CCA offers an appealing variety of recreational and general interest programs for all age groups. Kickstart your spring fitness with Canterbury or take the opportunity to try one of our great courses taught by the best instructors. New classes include knitting or quilting. English Paper Piecing is a beginner form of quilting that does not require a sewing machine. If you can do basic hand sewing, you can quilt. See some wonderful samples at registration. We are also offering conversational French to assist you in passing Government Tests.

If you have any questions regarding registration or programming through the Canterbury Community Association, I would be pleased to assist. The office phone is 613-738-8998 and my email address is
