Historical: Maillardville: Church and Family, 1910’s

In 1909 Fraser Mills sent a request to Quebec logging communities for trained workers for the lumber mill in Coquitlam. At that time the church was the heart the French Canadian culture so for the new settlers their first priority was to build the Notre Dames De Lourdes church on Laval Square in Maillardville (named after a beloved priest).  This banner was created in a folk art style to illustrate an earlier time period when order, symmetry, and family values were central to the spirit of the people.
