About Us

In 2000, the Main-à-Dieu Community Development Association launched a campaign for funding to convert the former Elementary School in the village to a community centre. After a gruelling four year struggle, federal and municipal support was forthcoming and the ‘Coastal Discovery Centre’ opened its doors in September 2004.

The Centre has evolved and changed over the past 14 years in response to funding challenges and changing community needs.

Friends of the Centre

The Coastal Discovery Centre is run as a non-for-profit organization, which means we keep our doors open because of the kindness and generosity of community members, levels of government and local organizations.

Take a look at some of our "Friends & Funders of the Centre", whom have contributed funding to aid in the running of our Centre.
