New ways to explore our region’s rich Acadian history.

The Municipalities of Clare and Argyle are expanding the popular Acadian Shores Interpretive Tour.

9 new heritage sites will be added for 2024, making a total of 37 sites with interpretive panels.

Clare’s Tourism Manager Larry Peach says it will be perfect for next year’s World Acadian Congress in the region.

“And we thought it was a great opportunity to time the launch of the project for that event, we know there will be thousands of Acadians congregating in the region,” said Peach.

The project will also feature new video vignettes for each panel.

It cost 260-thousand dollars, with the federal government kicking in 160-thousand.

“We’re modernizing this tour, it’s been in place since 2008. The timing is definitely perfect,” added Peach.

The rest was funded by the 2 municipalities, the province and the Yarmouth and Acadian Shores Tourism Association.
