Did You Know?Acadia - Did you know? In general, Acadians who returned to the Maritimes [after 1755] avoided resettling their former land because it was now occupied by English colonists and because the British authorities preferred to have them scattered in small groups.

Did You Know?Quebec - Did you know? A common belief in old Quebec was that lutins [spirits] had the power to do many things for people. They could procure good weather for the crops. They could watch over favorite animals. They could intercede for the recovery of a sick member of the household. Some have even been known to, 'during the night, shave the face of his master and black his boots for Sunday morning'.

Over time, Quebec has gone through a series of name changes.

From its inception in the early 1600s until 1760, it was called Canada, New France
1760 to 1763, it was simply Canada
1763 to 1791 - Province of Quebec
1791 to 1867 - Lower Canada
1867 to present - Quebec, Canada
