“In these times of globalization and social uniformity, it is essential to show that art trades are still very much alive.”
ECONOMUSE Society Network
“This network of businesses is composed of multitalented artisans who open their doors to the public so as to share their passion for their art trade and heritage. The businesses are chosen mainly for the quality of their welcome and for their products.
Give them the pleasure of your visit!”

Created in 1992 by Mr. Cyril Simard, Ph.D., the mission of the ECONOMUSEUM® Society Network(ESN) is to showcase traditional trades and know-how by promoting the setting up of ECONOMUSEUM® across Canada.
In the Atlantic region, it mandates the Atlantic ECONOMUSEUM® Corporation(AEC) to develop ECONOMUSEUM® in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador.
In so doing, it offers the public an innovative cultural tourism product.
The Charter of Values of the ECONOMUSEUM® Society Network
The Charter of Values was adopted in March 2006 at the annual convention of the ECONOMUSEUM® Society Network . It states the fundamental principles governing the attitude, behaviour and way of doing things of the people who keep the ECONOMUSEUM® network alive on a daily basis: its artisans and their workers, its administrators and its employees.
