- Cultural Services has announced a series of four public information sessions about Vancouver's 125th anniversary plans in 2011 and its 125th Anniversary Grants Program.
This program is a time-limited opportunity which aims to foster awareness and understanding of Vancouver's identities, first nations' heritage and cultural diversity. It will support activities that enrich our society through civic engagement and the celebration of art, culture and heritage.
