For the second year in a row, the Vanier College Graduation Ceremonies were held in the lovely Salle Claude Champagne. As usual, it was "standing room only" as proud family members and friends joined Vanier faculty, administration and staff in wishing a fond farewell to this year's group of graduates. We invite you to view a selection of photos taken that night.
