The mandate of the Cascapedia River Museum is to collect, preserve, educate, and nurture the understanding and appreciation of the Grand Cascapedia’s cultural and historical heritage. This museum will be a lasting tribute to our community and the anglers who share the Atlantic Salmon fishing experience on this world famous river. We have the opportunity to tell a fascinating story, but we cannot do it alone. We need the interest and support of many people to ensure that we can continue to maintain existing programs and develop new initiatives. Your support will make this possible. Take a moment to reflect on our proud past and the need to safeguard its future. Join us in our efforts to build a cultural institution of which we can be proud.

The Cascapedia River Museum looks forward to many exciting possibilities and challenges in the future including exhibition development, collections management, and information exchanges with other museums. We intend to increase our efforts in the research and education as well.
We are very proud of what we have accomplished, but know there is still much more to be done. Our mandate, “to collect, preserve, and educate” reinforces our appreciation of the magnificence of the river and its history, and emphasizes the need to continue this work. We know there is still much to be done to document and bring our history to life. With the continued support, encouragement, and dedication of all those who have an interest in the river and this project, we will succeed in our endeavours.
