Atelier communautaire d’ébénisterie de Rosemère (ACER) is a not-for-profit organization centered around a community woodworking shop in Rosemere. The principle objectives of the organization are to provide: a well-appointed workshop for the general use of members to work on their own projects (under supervision); and practical seminars to teach woodworking techniques.
In addition to having use of a very complete set of tools, members also have access to a large library of specialized manuals, magazines and DVDs. ACER also has rough lumber as well as veneers available for members at a reasonable cost (e.g. maple, oak, ash and aniegre).
All members agree to respect the code of conduct of the ACER. Many volunteer time for community projects, as well as to oversee the workshop when it is open for general use. The administrative roles of the organization are likewise filled by members on a voluntary basis.
