Port-Au-Port Field Trip

Events and Field Trips

Located on the West coast of Newfoundland is the Port-au-Port Peninsula, a picturesque region boasting a spectacular rocky shore lined by a magnificent jutting cliff-side. 

Made up of approximately 20 communities – including three Francophone and Acadian communities, [Cape St. George (Cap St-Georges), Black Duck Brook (L’Anse-à-Canards) and Mainland (Grand’Terre)] the region is commonly known as part of the French Shore. With the highest concentration of Francophones on the West coast, the peninsula is considered as the only bilingual district on the island of Newfoundland since 1971.

We will spend the day looking at the scenery and discovering the unique history of this community.

Make sure you dress appropriately and bring a lunch as there won't be opportunities to buy food on site. The cost to attend is $20, which includes transportation for the entire day and an historical commentary by a faculty expert.
