Funding for Acadian Day celebrations

Dozens of National Acadian Day events in Atlantic Canada are getting a million dollars from Ottawa. Heritage Minister Melanie Joly in Moncton announced funding for 59 projects, including Grand-Pre 2017 in the Annapolis Valley.

Joly says the money is part of the Canada 150 Fund and will give Acadian communities the chance to show off their cultural heritage on August 15th.
