Keys to History

By establishing these teachers' groups, Acadians hoped to provide services not available from the New Brunswick Teachers' Association. These groups gave them the opportunity to meet to discuss the problems endemic to their profession and to hear lectures on education in French. It was at the conference of the Association acadienne d'éducation (AAE) in Bathurst in 1946 that the Association of Acadian teachers of New Brunswick was founded. In 1967 it became the Association of francophone teachers of New Brunswick. As always, its primary concerns were the interests of its members and the enhancement of education in the French language.
