The Town of Coaticook owes the origin of its name : “ Koatikeki “ which means “river of the land of pines” to a tribe of Abenakis Indians. Framed in a natural mountainous and wooded setting crossed by a delightful river of the same name, the Town is contemporarily known as the “Pearl of the Eastern Townships”. Coaticook is also a vibrant urban center of 9 030 inhabitants who welcomes visitors with pride and enthusiasm.

On March 12, 1997, the Town of Coaticook officially launched a new project sponsored by its Municipal Cultural Commission :
