Welcome to the St. Margaret’s Bay Community Enterprise Centre (CEC), a place where business and community comes together. Whether you are an individual business person, from a not-for-profit organization or part of a community group the new CEC centre, right in the heart of St. Margaret’s Bay, is the perfect resource for everyone to connect, engage, share experience and expertise; and most of all build upon what is at the very heart of the CEC – ‘bringing people together to create a stronger more vibrant community.’

The new Centre is located at the crossroads of St. Margaret’s Bay Road and Peggy’s Cove Road, adjacent to the seasonal Farmers Market. It not only offers a community and meeting environment but that of a working facility too. With meeting rooms, offices, training and board room, hot desk areas, work tables, on-site printing and photocopying and outside parking the new Centre is a perfect working hub for everyone, something that the Bay area has been in desperate need of.

Set-up and run by a team of dedicated, hard working volunteers, the Centre is now fully open and being part of it is simple. Choose from either of 3 membership plans or a drop-in option and see just how much you could gain from being part of this unique new experience.
