ABCC provides meals, accommodations, office and classroom space, boat storage, docks and moorings as well as a variety of support services each year. ABCC attracts regional, national and local conferences, training and retreat events of all sizes, including the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, an international silent retreat with the Buddhist leader Tsoknyi Rinpoche, and the Canadian Felting Symposium.
ABCC believes in making the community of Cornwallis Park and surrounding region a better places to live, work and visit. We source local products and work with local suppliers to deliver our guest experiences. The organization is proud to support local schools and community organizations in terms of free space rentals and food donations. ABCC is proud to sponsor local festivals, events, and community organizations, including Wharf Rat Rally, Gran Fondo Baie Sainte-Marie, Bridgetown Recreation, and is the founding sponsor of the Royal Consort Community Choir.
ABCC’s picturesque property on the shores of the Bay of Fundy offers a refreshing change from stuffy conference rooms and the distractions of the city. With plenty of oceanside green space and gardens for relaxing, three kilometres of wooded hiking trails, a kilometre of beach to explore, and plenty of fun amenities, ABCC offers groups a fresh perspective on business.
