In 1967 Canada was 100 years old. That year Manotick was 108 years old, having been founded by Moss Kent Dickinson in 1859. In 1967 Manotick had the status of a “police village”. As part of the celebration of Canada’s Centennial, the pamphlet “The Police Village of Manotick” was produced. The pamphlet contains a brief history of Manotick, a review of the facilities available in 1967 including shopping, services, churches, schools, etc.; the centennial year program; governance; and a walking tour of the village.
