A Community-Based Not-for-Profit Cooperative

In 2011, Centre Wakefield La Pêche cooperative officially opened the doors of its new building

to the public. It represented the culmination of  over 10 years of dedication by a small group of

volunteers. The tenacity and commitment of these individuals along with other community

groups established the CWLP Cooperative. Financial support by federal, provincial, and local

governments, and generous donations from local businesses and individuals, resulted in the

building which continues to offer services to the local community.

In May 2022, we, the CWLP cooperative celebrated our 10th anniversary. To date, we have

offered over hundreds of performances and provided a wide range of bilingual programs, workshops and youth camps to hundreds of people. Time to celebrate our many successes and to breathe a sigh of relief after the COVID pandemic. Check out highlights from the past 10 years in our virtual hall.

Today, the CWLP building is a local hub for arts, culture, and recreation. for residents across the

Municipality of La Pêche and region.
