Like a buzzing beehive, Vitalité Frelighsburg is a catalyst for the innovative ideas that arise in our active community.


our values

community Leadership 

Community leadership at Vitalité is about raising awareness and mobilizing the community, our friends and neighbors by welcoming and supporting their ideas. It is to rally citizens to a common cause in order to make our village a better place to live while developing a sense of belonging for all.

community SPIRIT

Community spirit at Vitalité means working collectively by sharing our knowledge and skills, while collaborating with the various committees, other organizations and town officials. It is to encourage sharing among all citizens to form a tightly knit community.


Commitment at Vitalité means investing time and energy with passion and on a voluntary basis, in the advancement of engaging and dynamic projects for the good of the community. It is the valuable commitment made by the Board of Directors, committee members and volunteers to reflect, develop ideas and bring them to fruition.


Pleasure at Vitalité is a state of mind that allows us to work with joy and lightness in order to make tasks enjoyable and thus create a friendly and harmonious working atmosphere. It is the pleasure of sharing the fire within each of us, of collaborating with inspiring individuals through an event or a project experienced in a group.


Vitality is the dynamism necessary for the development of our multigenerational community. It is a village with an economic, social and cultural life. It’s a community that’s alive!
