August 15 is National Acadian Day
OTTAWA, Aug. 15, 2018 /CNW/ - Today, on August 15, Acadians across the country celebrate their culture, their traditions and their language with pride on National Acadian Day.
For more than four centuries, Acadians have played an important role in building Canada and contributing to its diversity. The dynamic nature of Acadian people goes beyond our borders; their accomplishments in all fields are well known here at home and abroad.
As Minister of Canadian Heritage and Multiculturalism, and as Minister of Tourism, Official Languages and La Francophonie, we would like to offer our best wishes to the Acadian people. We invite all Canadians to celebrate their vitality, strength and resilience.
