Cornwallis Park Development Association (CPDA) began operation in 1994 when CFB Cornwallis closed. CPDA worked with other organizations to sell the existing housing and attract businesses to the Park, while retaining the buildings required for the HMCS Acadia Cadets.
Since 2002 CPDA has operated as Annapolis Basin Conference Centre (ABCC), hosting the Cadets during the summer, and offering Conferences and Events during the shoulder seasons when the Cadets were not onsite.
The number of Cadets has decreased in recent years and ABCC facilities are no longer required for Cadet Training. It’s time to redevelop the property and a Master Plan has been created to guide this process.
