National Acadian Day is August 15th for Canadian citizens. This holiday remembers and honours members of Acadian culture and their forced departure from New Brunswick and Nova Scotia during the 1700s. This departure was due to the British Royal Family removing these people due to the French and Indian War complications and sending them to the then thirteen colonies. From there, they made their way south to the Louisiana territory, where their cultural heritage remains to this day.

The first National Acadian Day began in 1881 to honour the Acadian men and women removed from their homeland due to their cultural connection to France. However, it was not until 2003 that the British Royal Family acknowledged National Acadian Day. Through a division of the Canadian government known as the Department of Communities, Culture, and Heritage, government officials work to ensure Canadian citizens never forget the suffering of the Acadian people.
