Our latest publication

The Tantramar Heritage Trust’s 39th publication: Indifference and Remissness – English Language Education on the Isthmus of Chignecto 1760s to 1870s by Rhianna H. Edwards was published in November 2023. Drawing upon official government records, local diaries, journals, and account books, as well as newspaper articles and other material, Indifference and Remissness traces the evolution of English-language education in New Brunswick’s parishes of Sackville and Cumberland/Westmorland. The study begins in 1755, after the expulsion of the Acadians, and concludes with the passage of the New Brunswick Common Schools Act in 1871 which provided tuition-free education to all school-aged children.
