Who are we?
The Bourg-Bourque Association of Nova Scotia began as a group of people who organized a reunion for Bourg, Burke, Birk, Bourque descendants. This reunion took place on August 7, 2004 at the new high school (Par en Bas) in Tusket, Yarmouth County, Nova Scotia, Canada. We were a part of CMA2004.
What is CMA2004?
CMA2004 is "Congrès Mondial Acadian" or" World Acadian Congress". It is a gathering of all families of Acadian descent from all over the world. Most participants come from Canada, especially the Maritime Provinces (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island), and Louisianna. The last Congrès took place in Nova Scotia in the summer of 2004. The main events were held from July 31 to August 15, 2004. The Bourg-Bourque reunion took place on August 7, 2004.
