The St. Vital Historical Society was established to:

-  Identify, collect and preserve articles and items related to the history of the St. Vital Community
-  Conduct programs that allow public access to this history
-  Provide a place for the study of St. Vital history (archives)
-  Make regular 'Thematic Presentations' throughout the Community
-  Present Mini-Themes on a Mobile Display Board which would travel throughout the community to such places as libraries, schools and senior centres, in order to reach a wider population
