Jeux de l'Acadie
Jeux de l'Acadie

For only the second time in its history, the Finale des Jeux de l'Acadie will take place in Nova Scotia! From June 29 to July 3, 2012, the Municipality of Argyle, in Southwest Nova Scotia, will host the largest gathering of young Acadian and Francophone athletes (almost 1100) in the Atlantic Provinces.

The first Acadian Games were held in 1979 to promote the initiation and participation in youth sport in the Maritimes. Its goal was to promote the management of sports, the promotion of the French culture and the development of leadership and sports facilities. This is the positive image that we want to associate you with.

In June, the eyes will be on the Acadian and Francophone community of Argyle, giving us the opportunity to show our hospitality, our know-how and Francophone culture. The organizing committee of the 33rd Finale des Jeux de l'Acadie invites you, as a volunteer, to support the Acadian and Francophone youth in the Atlantic region by participating in this celebration.

There is no age to volunteer. Young and old alike can find their niche in the Games. Families, social organizations, businesses as well as individuals can give their time to work in one of the many activities that are part of the Games.

If you can give a few hours of your time during the Games, or just help organize them, simply fill out the form below

Not only will the young Acadian and Francophone Atlantic greatly appreciate your support, but it would also be an opportunity to see friends and create new friendships. We seek to build a team of about 1000 volunteers. The challenge is great, but we are confident that we will
allemerge from this experience of a life time, proud to have contributed to the success of this great event which has been promoting the development of the Acadian culture and sports for 32 years! For this, we say


We are looking forward to meeting and working with you!
