The World Acadian Congress (WAC) is a major event that has been held every five years since 1994 in a region representative of the Acadian Diaspora. In 2014, the WAC will be held in a unique, multicultural and international location called the Acadia of the Lands and Forests. The 2014 WAC estimates that 50,000 people will attend, generating 600,000 entries in some 300 activities taking place over 17 days, with economic returns of more than $55M and a five-year operating budget of $12M.

On June 7 and 21, 2012, Denis Rheault, Consulting Services Director, and several members of the RCGT team provided on-site consultations on issues and opportunities related to the 2014 WAC so that the event could incorporate the economic dimension, increase development and have a lasting legacy in the region.

Over 100 people took part in the consultation activities, including entrepreneurs and economic, government and institutional stakeholders from New Brunswick, Quebec and the state of Maine.

This strategic planning assignment gave RCGT’s consulting services team the opportunity to strengthen its reputation in the area’s economic sector and extend its outreach in an inter-provincial and cross-border context.
