Prince Edward Island and Southeast New Brunswick

claudette theriault2xChair of COCMA2019

Claudette Thériault is very well known throughout Francophone community organizations in Prince Edward Island and in the rest of Canada. A tireless volunteer, Claudette has been involved in many causes that have helped shape her community. She served on the board of directors of the Société Nationale de l’Acadie, the Société Saint-Thomas d’Aquin and was involved with the Jeux de l’Acadie, just to name a few.

Claudette believes that this event will be an important milestone for the region.

“The Congrès mondial will be the largest Acadian event to ever take place on Prince Edward Island. This makes it the perfect event to celebrate all that has been accomplished in Acadie over the last two decades in regards to asserting who we are and affirming the place we intend to take.”

Claudette believes that the communities involved will be able to learn more from each other and will be able to increase their working relationships. This mutually beneficial situation will help everyone grow collectively. The ties that are being established between Prince Edward Island and Southeastern New Brunswick will be part of this Congrès mondial’s legacy.
