Supporting activities and projects for the Acadian community.

Le Fonds La Picasse was established to provide financial support for La Picasse, Centre Communautaire Culturel, a multi-disciplinary centre with the mandate of promoting the French language and culture in  Richmond County for the Acadian and francophone communities.

La Picasse, Centre Communautaire Culturel plays a pivotal role in the preservation and development of the Acadian and francophone community in Nova Scotia. The development of this fund allows Acadians to enjoy what their community has to offer for years to come.

The fund was established through an initial investment of $250,000 by l’Association du Centre Marin Isle à Souris which was matched by the Government of Nova Scotia bringing the initial investment for this fund to $500,000. The interest from the trust fund will be allocated annually to support La Picasse, Centre Communautaire Culturel.

La Picasse, Centre Communautaire Culturel, and the Community Foundation of Nova Scotia recognize the support of the Province of Nova Scotia. We are pleased to work in partnership with the Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage to develop and promote our cultural resources for all Nova Scotians.
