Our History

Overlooking beautiful Tatamagouche Bay, where two rivers merge, our year-round facility is located at a gathering place that was used for thousands of years by First Nations, and later by the Acadians.

For over 60 years Tatamagouche Centre has been a meeting place for those who deeply care about spirituality, leadership, and social justice. From the early days of winter sessions in the 50’s and 60’s, the human relations emphasis in the later 60’s and 70’s, to current programs such as the Guatemala Breaking the Silence Network and partnerships with First Nations Communities, the Centre has touched the lives of thousands of people. Tatamagouche Centre is a leader and innovator, offering at least 10 programs each year. We also provide warm hospitality to hundreds of church, community and other organizations as well as offering self-contained, private retreat space.

Open to the spirit, rooted in the gospel tradition, Tatamagouche Centre is an education and retreat centre which invites and challenges people from diverse backgrounds to personal wholeness, right relationships, respect for creation, and justice in the world.

Inclusion Statement

Through the full welcome and inclusion of all people, Tatamagouche Centre offers its hospitality to everyone, works for the justice of all people, and joyfully affirms and celebrates human diversity in sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender, ability, race, religion and age, regardless of economic situation.
