Major organizations

Founded in 1973, the Société des Acadiens et Acadiennes du Nouveau-Brunswick (SAANB) was, up to 2008, the principal representative for the province's Acadians and Francophones. On the 400th anniversary of the founding of Acadia, and particularly in the context of a Convention de la société acadienne du Nouveau-Brunswick, a deliberative assembly open to all sectors of Acadian civil society, the SAANB launched a process of reflection on its activities after 30 years and on prospects for the Acadian community.

At the 2008 SAANB Annual General Meeting, its members passed a resolution creating a new structure of political representation, the Société de l'Acadie du Nouveau-Brunswick (SANB). They did so because they wanted to foster a better balance between the associative community and individual Acadians. Based on a reorganization of the Forum de concertation des organismes acadiens du Nouveau-Brunswick and the SAANB, the SANB performs the same functions of the former representative bodies, but it does so more coherently and effectively and provides for more participation by individuals.

With its 20,000 members, the SANB is a member of the Société nationale de l'Acadie (SNA) and the Fédération des communautés francophones et acadienne du Canada (FCFA). The association's objectives include the recognition of a distinct Acadian society, the creation of homogeneous French and bilingual institutions, the affirmation of French in the face of increasing assimilation, and the safeguarding of rights in a context of government restructuring.

In a spirit of continuity and openness, the SANB is maintaining the language file as a priority area, especially in the fields of health care and bilingualism in postsecondary education, among other sectors. The right to work in either official language in the public service, the development of French in public affairs, and regional development remain key concerns for the new organization. It is also focusing on revitalizing citizen participation in debates on major social issues. Its openness will find concrete expression in efforts to integrate new immigrants and its commitment to giving young people and women a more active role within the organization.

Forum de concertation des organismes acadiens et francophones du Nouveau-Brunswick


The Forum de concertation des organismes acadiens et francophones du Nouveau-Brunswick has existed for nearly 20 years and has been involved in the process of developing and implementing Canada-community agreements since 1995.

In order to define Acadian community development priorities, this consultative structure received the mandate to define provincial priorities concerning development within the Acadian community. Acadian

The Forum is responsible for implementing the Plan de développement global de l'Acadie du Nouveau-Brunswick, a provincial plan reflecting priorities established by the thirty or so organizations that make up the Forum de concertation.
