Bouctouche

The Canadian town of Bouctouche in the Province New Brunswick has a rich Acadian history. Bouctouche was first settled by Francois LeBlanc in 1785 as an Acadian community. There were also a few Irish families.

Visitor attractions include Le Pays de la Sagouine (based on Antonine Maillet's award-winning book La Sagouine), a theme park filled with Acadian entertainment and history, and the Irving Eco-Centre la Dune de Bouctouche.
Industrialist K.C. Irving was born in Bouctouche, and many of his businesses, including Kent Homes, maintain operations there. The Irving family's commitment to protecting the area's natural resources, has revitalized the town's image and economy. There are many hiking and cycling trails (non-motorized), that are part of the New Brunswick Trail system.

The town of approximately 2500, is located at the mouth of the Bouctouche River on the coast of the Northumberland Strait, approximately 40 kilometres northeast of Moncton.
