Did You Know?Acadia - Did you know? In Acadia, 'feux-follets are spirits of the damned that temporarily leave a person's body and wander at night in the shape of a small flame.'

Did You Know?Quebec - Did you know? The seigneurial system was a form of land settlement modelled on the French feudal system. It began in New France in 1627 with the formation of the Compagnie des Cent-Associés that was initially responsible for handing out land grants and seigneurial rights. The land was divided into 5 by 15 kilometre plots, usually along major rivers like the St. Lawrence. They were then further subdivided into narrow, but long lots for settlement. These lots were usually long enough to be suitable for faming, and they provided everyone who lived on them with equal access to neighbouring farms and the river.
