Community Partnerships

The strength of our community depends on diversity and inclusiveness. The support of our community partnerships is highly beneficial to these goals. With the support of local businesses and organizations we can continue to build on the reputation of Antigonish as a leader in community development with significant reward for the entire town and county.

Vocational Program

Our vocational program has been operating since the early 1970’s with incorporation taking place in 1977. Currently we have over 60 program participants. The vocational program employs eleven staff.

Health & Wellness

We run a community lunch program to encourage socialization and healthy eating habits. We run regular yoga classes and group walks to promote fitness and exercise beyond that provided in our vocational and pre-vocational programs.

Residential Program

Our residential program has been operating since 1993. Currently we have a Developmental “3” Group Home with four residents and two respite placements. We also have two supervised apartments in the community. The residential program employs fifteen staff.Get Involved!
