Mission and vision
The council's vision is to bring together the Acadian and Francophone community of West Prince by providing community services to the Acadians and Francophones of West Prince. The Center scolaire-communautaire will be at the heart of French-language activities in Prince-Ouest.
Develop and promote the Acadian community of West Prince by organizing community activities in French, by offering services in French representing the historical, cultural, economic and political interests of Acadians in the region. The committee will work in partnership with the Commission scolaire de langue française to support and promote education in French.
The Committee is responsible for bringing together and ensuring the representation and participation of members from the St. Louis, Palmer Road, Tignish, Alberton, and Bloomfield regions. The Committee worked on the Tignish Bicentennial Organizing Committee in 1999 and published a book on genealogical research of the eight Acadian pioneer families of Tignish and Palmer Road.
