Following multiple requests and strong political pressure in the town of Crysler, the CSCE receives funding to open another satellite office. A complete team, including a doctor, nurse practitioner, health promoter, mental health professional and dietician, is put in place to offer a full range of services.

The CSCE becomes a partner in the project to create a francophone cultural centre in Alexandria, and opens a satellite office in the same building.

The Centre de santé communautaire de l’Estrie (CSCE) is created through the initiative of a group of francophone women to meet a marked need for French-language healthcare services in the Cornwall region.

Roland Beaulieu is hired as Executive Director and plays a major role in the CSCE’s remarkable expansion over the course of the following years.
