Acadian Affairs and Francophonie

Acadian Affairs and Francophonie works to support the delivery of French-language services throughout government, promote Acadian and francophone culture and heritage, and celebrate Acadian heritage and community projects.

We work with the Acadian and francophone community to encourage participation and input in government consultations. We also share community feedback and ideas with other departments so they can better understand and address the community’s needs through programs, services and policies.

Acadian Affairs and Francophonie is a division of the Department of Communities, Culture, Tourism and Heritage.
