There is always something happening at the Coastal discovery Centre.
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.
