The Acadians of the early 19th century continued the task of rebuilding communities disrupted by the deportation. They created new settlements, such as the one established by Joseph DUGAS.

“Perhaps Joseph’s greatest accomplishment was in laying the foundation of the well-integrated subsistence economy by which the settlers of St Mary’s Bay prospered even into the 20th century. Following Joseph’s example each settler skilfully combined the occupations of fisherman, farmer, lumberman, builder, and hunter.”
