Robert Frenette is well aware of all the intricacies in the planning and the hosting of a Congrès mondial. He was present at the very beginning, during the discussions surrounding the planning of the very first event with founder André Boudreau. He then took on the role of executive director for the 1994 and 2009 editions, and as a consultant for the 2004 and 2014 editions.

“We can recognize that every edition of the Congrès mondial impacts positively the host regions. The event creates a unique momentum. This event, unlike any other, sees the rise of new community leaders, allowing them to fully participate in the decision-making processes.

Robert believes the Congrès mondial will rekindle the region's sense of belonging to the Acadian culture.
