Characteristics of the Region

The Municipality of Argyle’s (Par-en-Bas) population of 9000 is 65% of Acadian descent, with Acadian French being spoken in most communities. There are four French schools here that are part of the Conseil scolaire acadien provincial. The neighbouring town is Yarmouth, which is primarily English. Adjacent to Yarmouth is the Municipality of Clare which has a very similar population to Argyle’s with 85% of the residents being of Acadian descent. Together, these two municipalities make up the largest Acadian population in all of Nova Scotia. Pubnico (which is in the Municipality of Argyle) is actually the oldest region still Acadian in all of North America being the only community where Acadians returning after the deportation were given special permission to reclaim their original lands. It is one of the oldest communities where a very large percentage of the population can trace back their ancestry to the original founder, Sieur Philippe Mius d’Entremont.
