In 2004, the third congress was held jointly by several Nova Scotia communities in the ancestral Acadie region and celebrated the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first French-speaking settlers in Canada.

The 2009 Acadian World Congress was held in the Acadian Peninsula, New Brunswick.

In 2014, Acadia of the Lands and Forests will host the event. The region includes Northwestern New Brunswick, the Témiscouata region of Québec and northern Maine, in the United States. Two countries, specifically two provinces and a state - a unique presentation for this 5th Congress!

Southeastern New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island are delighted to be hosting the next Acadian World Congress from August 10th to 24th, 2019.
