This will be a very exciting time!
The previous reunions held in 1985 for the 25th and in 2000 for the 40th and then in 2010 for the 50th, brought alumni home from all over Canada, the US and even the World , to join with all who live in Winnipeg. Those reunions were such grand celebrations of friendship, camaraderie and fun .
The VMC 60th reunion in 2022 promises the same magic. There will be plenty of opportunity to reminisce, remember and relive memories of high school days in Fort Garry. Join in and renew friendships with those we shared our youthful days with at Vincent Massey Collegiate from the 60’s to the 2000’s!

What a splendid reunion! It was wonderful connecting with old friends…both from VMC and from elsewhere. My parents moved out of Fort Garry in 1966…and I left Winnipeg on 1974…so there were many people I had not seen for 40 years. Special – Gord

After the members of the First Nations, it was the voyageurs’ turn to paddle the Ottawa River and visit Pincourt as early as the 17th century. They would stop near the Quinchien rapids, near Île aux Pins, probably for the fur trade. At the time, Île Perrot was a pine-forested seigneury.
In 1754, one of these travellers, the seigneur Jean-Baptiste Leduc granted land near Pointe-au-Renard to Joseph André dit St-Amant. This tip of land was commonly known as Pointe à la Barbue, since it was known as a great spot to catch catfish.
Gradually, newcomers settled along the Ottawa River, near the Dorion and Vaudreuil crossings. They travelled along a trail called the 'côte de Pincourt' because, at the time, a “côte” referred to a small trail or shortcut.
What is link building. Several artisans later built their homes on small lots near the crossing sites: Dorion's miller, an innkeeper (1), a weaver, a shoemaker (2), a cooper, two blacksmiths and a few merchants.

In 1948, the village of Pincourt was briefly a municipal entity, after the separation and incorporation of the municipality of Notre-Dame-de-l'Île-Perrot with Île-Perrot-Nord (now called Île-Perrot).
This union lasted a little more than a year until the Pincourt councillors asked surveyor W. E. Lauriault to determine the boundaries of a future municipality. Their idea was to secure a charter for this territory (effective January 1, 1950).
The 1950s saw the fledgling municipality rapidly acquire new buildings, infrastructures and public services that would guide its development to this day. Consequently, its population quintupled in ten years.

After obtaining its town status in 1960, the Pincourt territory rapidly urbanized. Successive town councils worked hard to establish a wide variety of services for an ever-growing population.
In the 1961 census, Pincourt had a population of 2,685, compared to 14,558 in 2016. Much of this remarkable growth can be attributed to the local authorities' vision of the future. Throughout this period, they maintained a constant pace to offer Pincourt residents a rich and varied living environment adapted to their needs.
