L’Arche Antigonish

L’Arche Antigonish is an organization in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, where people with and without intellectual disabilities share life. L’Arche is an interfaith community shaped by people with different beliefs, practises and religions. L’Arche Antigonish 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 work collaboratively with the Nova Scotia Department of Community Services in developing for persons with intellectual disabilities.



L’Arche Believes that meaningful work and daytime activities are essential to a person’s dignity. We have three-day programs: Cornerstone, Horizons and The Studio that meet the needs of individuals at L’Arche and the wider community.

Our community has five L’Arche homes: Covenant House, Dixie House, Emmaus House, Hope House, Jubilee House and one supervised apartment. We also have an office building.
