Millennium Project Overview

The Millennium Project is a landmark development for the Polish-Canadian community.

Father Adam Filas of Brampton, Ont, Stan Szaflarski of St Catherine's, Ont and Stan Jasinski of Woodstock, Ont originally conceived the Millennium Project concept in the late 1990's. The inspiration was that of an old European town that harmonizes the lifestyle of recreation, residence and commerce around the center of the church.

In 1999, the purchase of a 25-acre land parcel in West Brampton, was the start of the Millennium Project. The original financial contributors making the land acquisition possible, were the Archdiocese of Toronto, the St Stanislaus-St Casimir Polish Parish Credit Union Ltd and the Jasinski Family of Woodstock, Ont.

Some 12 years later, the dream is becoming reality as a result of the hard work, vision and tenacity of countless community members and volunteers. Today, the Millennium 2000 Project consists of the following:

  1. St Eugene de Mazenod Church
  2. The Residences of Villa Polonia
  3. Polish Cultural Center

The St Eugene de Mazenod Church

As the first component to be built, this beautiful Church presents the Millennium Project to Polonia, and to the wider West Brampton community. Its symmetry represents balance and harmony, and its traditional architecture invites a sense of reverence.

Designed by Archway and Associates, this magnificent House of God with seating for 1200, is the foundation for our community development and a symbol of a progressive Polish heritage.
