Photo Lisette Gaudet: 2007The Municipality of the District of Clare is pleased to welcome you to our bilingual Internet website. As you surf our site, you will discover a wonderful Acadian community that is rich in culture and heritage.

Settled in 1768 and incorporated in 1879, the Municipality of Clare is the only municipality in the Province of Nova Scotia that conducts business and offers services in both official languages, French and English.

With an approximate population of 8500, we are located at the south-western tip of Nova Scotia, an Atlantic province of Canada (North America).

A well-known Acadian region, Clare occupies the western half of Digby County. Most of the Municipality's settled areas are located along Saint Mary's Bay, a sub-basin of the Gulf of Maine.

The Municipality is mainly inhabited by Acadians and conducts its business in both French and English, although over 75% of the residents of Clare are able to communicate in both official languages the most commonly used language is French. The French-Acadian language and culture play an important role in the lives of the residents of the Municipality of Clare.

The Acadians of Clare are famous for their warm "joie de vivre", reflected in our vibrant music, festivals, culture and way of life.
