Douglas Community Center Presentation
Incorporated in 1998 at the initiative of a group of citizens from Douglastown, the Douglas Community Center will have recovered and renovated the village school, St. Patrick Central School (1956), a three-storey building. with an area of 1650 square meters. Since then, the Center has been rooted in its community by providing services and activities to the local population of some 650 residents, who are almost equally divided between the Francophone and Anglophone communities.
The Community Center is a non-profit organization (NPO) established under the Companies Act, Part III; its objects, developed by the members, are articulated on three distinct levels:
The collective development;
The community development;
The management of the corporation.
Our mission is to provide residents of Douglastown with welcoming spaces and a variety of activities that foster a sense of belonging and share knowledge and experience. We want to give community members opportunities to get involved in a meaningful way in the life of the village, with a view to collective well-being. Briefly, the Douglas Community Center aims at the social, economic and cultural promotion of the community and the consultation between the two linguistic communities.
