Statement from Steven Del Duca on National Acadian Day

August 15 marks National Acadian Day, celebrating all aspects of the Acadian culture that has shaped Canada into the nation we are today.

First celebrated in 1881, Acadian Day celebrates the rich heritage passed down by generations of Acadians. In 2003 it was officially declared to be a Canadian holiday.

Acadians have been an integral part of the Canadian story since their arrival on these shores. In the face of discrimination, exile and deportation Acadians have shown resilience and built strong, unique and vibrant communities that shine around the world.

While celebrations this year are virtual and different from previous years, we remember that Acadians and their language, history and culture are part of the glue that makes Ontario a diverse and beautiful place to live.

On behalf of the Ontario Liberal Party, I want to wish all of those celebrating a Happy National Acadian Day.
