"Family gatherings are at the heart of the programming of this fifth Congrès mondial acadien. Participation in a family meeting is a fun and ideal opportunity to discover more about your heritage, but also to reconnect with distant cousins and forge new family ties. For many of these families, it is a tradition to meet at every Congrès mondial acadien and, for others, it will be a first that will certainly mark the family history. ", said Mr. Émilien Nadeau, President of the CMA 2014.
