Centre Wakefield La Pêche
The Centre is owned and run by a not-for-profit Co-operative organization with over 1,500 lifetime members.
It took more than a decade to create a membership owned cooperative for the community in Wakefield, QC. Thanks to the persistent work of dedicated volunteers and community groups, we opened our doors to the public in November 2011.
Since then, we have become a hub for arts, culture and recreation for residents from every area of the
Municipality of La Pêche including Alcove, Edelweiss, East Aldfield,
Farrellton, Lac Des Loups, Lascelles, Masham, Rupert and Wakefield, as well as
Farm Point and Chelsea.
We hold large community events, host exquisite performances in theatre, film and music and offer excellent programming for fitness and the arts.
Our commitment is to serving our community, we hope you all become lifetime members of the cooperative and participate in its o, as our success is directly related to your participation. Join the cooperative today.
