Exhibit at Trail Library

The Trail and District Library is pleased to present "Ordinary Lives, Extraordinary Times: Italian Canadian Internment Experience during WW!!". As you know, libraries are about more than just books now and this exhibit is an example of how libraries interact with their community culture today. This exhibit is on loan from the Columbus Centre in Toronto, and Trail is the only venue for the exhibit west of Ontario. Several Trail residents were interned as Enemy Aliens and this is a story that many people have never heard.

The exhibit can be viewed:
January 11 - March 31, 2016
On the Red Floor @The Trail Memorial Centre
(just outside the Library entrance)
1051 Victoria Street, Trail, BC

This is an exhibit of artifacts and information reflecting the experiences of Italian Canadian "Aliens" held in internment camps during the Second World War. An audio/visual component is available during regular library hours only.

An exploration of the experiences of the Italian community for all. This is open during regular Arena hours at no charge.

For further information or clarification contact Mrs. Karen McDonnell @ 250-368-3108


Good news! The Village recently installed a new Interac machine at the Office to allow residents to complete a wider range of financial transaction options for Village services in a more convenient way.

Please note that at this time, our set up only allows for debit transactions (bank cards) and not for credit cards.


Montrose Recreation is planning a bigger and expanded Montrose Family Fun Day Event next year! We want to make this anniversary a big one and have slightly increased the budget - and we are trying to get as many people involved as we can! As these events depend on volunteers to make them successful, anyone that wants to help can get information from the Village Office.

Also, if you know of anyone that used to live in Montrose, go to school here, or grew up here - please let them know about this event and invite them home…a home coming…so to speak. The main event will be on Saturday June 11, with other events tentatively happening on both Thursday (June 9) and Friday (June 10) nights.

Let’s make the 60th year the best one yet!

Council recently adopted the Village's new Integrated Community Sustainability Plan (ICSP) - Imagine Montrose, Creating the Future.

The ICSP is the vision, plan and process to continue our community's success over the next twenty years, is a way to position us to achieve sustainability in the longer-term and is the highest level guiding document for our community - with a practical decision-making framework that can be applied to all levels of decisions and used to guide all types of other plans, policies and programs.
