108 years of French in Maillardville!

Posted by Leo Bruneau on Tuesday, September 19th, 2017 at 2:32pm.

This Sunday we are celebrating the 108th anniversary of francophone in Maillardville. Maillardville is a small french community within the city of Coquitlam where the first french Canadians settled when they crossed Canada from Quebec to work the logging operations in B.C. 108 years is a long time and Team Leo is excited to be a part of this amazing event to celebrate the community's history. If you do attend the festival, make sure you look out for the Team Leo smart car, and also make sure to stop by the Team Leo tent to say hi to Jasmine. She would love to see you.

This event is family friendly and features a lot of great games, music and so much more. From what we hear, there's going to be a lot of cool things set up for you. Here are a few of the things we're most looking forward to:

Live Performances

If you love supporting local artists and seeing concerts in person, then make sure to check out Alouest, Maillardville's very own band. They bring their own West Coast charm and flair to French Canadian music. They have a lot of great songs which we love.


Along with the well-loved bean bag toss, we also hear that there will be a number of other games for you to enjoy. A game of Petanque will be set up for your enjoyment.

Fitness Programs


An Osteofit workshop is scheduled to help educate everyone about health and fitness. The instructors will help you learn about safe and gentle exercises to keep you comfortable during your workout.


A great selection of awesome music paired with a mixture of dance and aerobic movements, is there a better workout out there? I think not. Who doesn't love to move their body to the beat of some great music? Make sure to find the Zumba initiation and join in on the fun.   Wow, with all the cool things happening, this event is promising to be great. We hope you have fun celebrating at this festival! If you have any questions regarding real estate, or you just want to check in to say hi, feel free to call Team Leo at 604-936-1111 or email us at We look forward to hearing from you.
