Cormier-Village

 

Ward 6 is Cormier-Village which accounts for approximately 243 people and about 4% of the total population. Mrs. Susan Cormier is the councillor of this Ward and she's also Deputy Mayor. Mr. Laurie McGraw, one of the pioneers of the Beaubassin-est Rural Community’s committee, had been councillor of this Ward since its beginning in 1995. He also had the title of Vice President since 1995, and after the title of Deputy Mayor. This region, established by the Belliveau, Cormier and Gallant families near the beginning of the 1800’s, has carried the name of "Kissi-biguet" or "Kagibougouète", both aboriginal names. From 1910-1915, a company from West Virginia had dug for oil in the area. This community also has a historic school that was built in 1880 and a monument honouring the victims of the Cormier-Village accident which happenned in 1989. This region is rather residential, but it has some agriculture producers, some cattle farms including sheep, horses, cows and even ducks, as well as some other small businesses. There is also a Golden Age Club and the new Cormier Village Cultural and Sports Center / Ecoparc Cormier Village. This region has several natural attractions such as the Kagibougouète River, an excellent place for trout fishing. Over the last ten years, several families from St-Pierre and Miquelon have settled within this calm community.
