 Vincent Massey Public School was named in honour of Canada’s 18th Governor General Of Canada, Vincent Massey. Our school is a living legacy to this influential Canadian diplomat who served as Governor General from 1952 to 1959. Massey's tenure as the Governor General of Canada was notable in that he was the first Canadian-born individual to be appointed to the post. It was Massey's intent as governor general to work to unite Canada's diverse cultures. 
Massey's most influential years were between 1949 and 1959, when Massey made his major contributions. He was responsible for the first major movement of the arts and letters from the periphery of national concern towards the centre. He created awards for artistic endeavours and promoted the concept of an annual, national arts festival, which eventually led to the founding of the National Arts Centre (NAC) here in Ottawa.
