Newfoundland and Labrador celebrates 500 years of French in the province

The rich history of Franco-Newfoundlanders and Labradorians is celebrated in 35 communities, only 9 of which are home to Acadians and Francophones. The event promotes unity and community.

The province’s Francophone community is an essential part of Newfoundland and Labrador culture, despite the fact that French speakers currently represent only 0.6% of the population.
