Imagine the World Differently
L’Arche Antigonish is a community situated in the town of Antigonish, Nova Scotia, where people with and without intellectual disabilities share life together. As an interfaith, ecumenical community, we welcome people of all religious backgrounds and those with no religious traditions. Our community of L’Arche invites each of us through daily living and relationships, to grow in a greater appreciation of ourselves and one another.
As a non-profit organization, L’Arche Antigonish is managed by a local Board of Directors and works collaboratively with the Nova Scotia Department of Community Services in developing programs for persons with intellectual disabilities.
The L’Arche Antigonish Foundation was incorporated as a non-profit society to respond to the funding needs not covered by the Department of Community Services. These “Friends of L’Arche” help the local L’Arche community participate in the regional, National and federation activities of L’Arche and to share the story and mission through various fundraising initiatives.
