The SADC over the years
The Coaticook SADC, or Société d’aide au développement de la collectivité, has always been about local citizens. It is a private non-profit organization incorporated under the Canada Corporations Act – Part II.
THE COATICOOK SADC AND ITS PREDECESSORS, THE COMMUNITY FUTURES DEVELOPMENT CENTRE (CFDC) AND THE BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT CENTRE (BDC), HAVE BEEN A STAPLE OF OUR REGION FOR 35 YEARS AND MADE AN EXTRAORDINARY CONTRIBUTION TO THE GROWTH AND WELL-BEING OF OUR COMMUNITY.
These organizations have administered the Community Futures Program (CFP) which, since its inception in 1985, has given communities and their representatives the decision-making autonomy needed to ensure the socio-economic development of their communities.
A continual presence in our area, and thanks to the remarkable involvement of its staff and the volunteers who have worked on its various boards of directors, the Coaticook SADC has stayed focused on its mission by helping to foster a climate conducive to job creation and maintenance in the region. The SADC is attentive to the needs of the community and continues to offer personalized technical assistance and financial support to businesses, in addition to supporting the community through a great variety of projects and initiatives.
