Le Club Bon Accueil de Powell River (translated as The French Association of Powell River) was founded in 1967 and was incorporated in 1977. The Club acquired a parcel of land on Manson Avenue in 1985; a group of dedicated volunteers erected the French Community Centre building in 6 months, inaugurating it in early 1986.
The mandate of Club Bon Accueil is to promote French culture and language and to foster a sense of belonging within the Francophone community through cultural, educational and community activities. Here is a general list of the activities and services offered to the Francophone and Francophile population of Powell River:
