Description

People in the Acadian town of Cheticamp in Cape Breton, realizing that their power was limited as a small minority group, worked together diligently for survival. Economic cooperation and a keen awareness of cultural identity became the underpinnings of the Cheticamp cooperative complex. Solidarity, leadership and an intense appreciation for their culture have made Cheticamp a model of community economic development.
