Located in the heart of Sudbury, La Galerie du Nouvel-Ontario was established in 1974 by members of the Cooperative des artistes du Nouvel-Ontario. It was initially located in a Franco-Ontarian community centre, La Slague, but later moved to its present location at the Centre des jeunes. The focus at La Galerie du Nouvel-Ontario is on contemporary art, where a platform to nurture this expression and develop the visual medium is provided.
