Acadie-Nouvelle, Caraquet NB

The French language Acadie-Nouvelle, in Caraquet NB, is a recently established paper *available online since 2003).

It caters to francophone Maritimers, and its name (meaning the Acadia News in English) refers back to the Acadians. These French pioneers settled in the Maritimes, arriving as early as 1604. They were deported from Nova Scotia in 1713, after France ceded Nova Scotia to England in the Treaty of Utrecht. Still a strong ethnic group, they enjoy this French language paper.
