More than two-and-a-half centuries after the deportation, it was Queen Elizabeth II who issued an official apology for her country’s actions. The proclamation, issued in 2003, acknowledged the “trials and suffering experienced by the Acadian people during the Great Upheaval” and expressed “hope that the Acadian people can turn the page on this dark chapter of their history.”
