Long before she entered municipal politics, Maja Vodanovic was involved and an activist for various public health issues. She was elected borough councillor in the Canal district of the Lachine in 2013 before becoming mayor of the Lachine borough in 2017.
Working alongside the community, she led successful efforts such as the reversal of pollution and clean up of the Meadowbrook and Bouchard streams, banning the use of dangerous herbicides toxic to our environment, keeping the Lakeside Academy high school form permanently shutting its doors, the protection of the heritage buildings and property of the Sisters of Sainte Anne. She is especially proud to have fought to protect public health from the dangers of contaminated soils at Pominville Park and the Jenkins site in Lachine-East. The citizens supported her in these actions and together they brought positive change. The inclusion of youth has always been at the center of involvement in her democratic process and led her to create the first Youth Alliance of Lachine.
Maja is currently working to improve public transit, increase the well being and security in the borough, plan the future of Lachine-Est, protect our heritage and help solve the daily problems of the citizens of Lachine. She is committed to ensuring the rigorous management of public funds.
What motivates Maja Vodanovic's team in Lachine is a deep commitment to the health and well-being of its citizens. A desire that all Lachinians feel proud of their contribution to their community. That is why, in Lachine, we invest in our sports infrastructure, in cultural vitality and in safety. We are beautifying and improving the quality of life of our citizens through the construction of our future sports and community center and the completion of the Pink Line, which will connect us to downtown. We are planning an Eco-district in Lachine-Est to transform a brownfield site with a glorious past into a complete neighbourhood that benefits the entire community. We are taking care of our natural heritage by investing in the reconstruction of our waterfront. We are taking care of the quality of education by facilitating the creation of two new schools and we are taking care of our environment by creating and protecting 305,000 m2 of parks and green spaces.See more
