Current MLA: Chris d'Entremont (PC), Minister of Health, Minister of Acadian Affairs, Chair of the Senior Citizens' Secretariat

District profile: The district, at the southern tip of Nova Scotia, is home to several small coastal communities including Wedgeport, Argyle and the various Pubnicos, from Lower East to Lower West. The area has a strong Acadian heritage.

Fishing is the economic mainstay of the area, although manufacturing and the service sector are significant employers.

The district was created in 1981 – it used to be part of Yarmouth – and is predominantly French-speaking, although there are many English descendants of Loyalist families.

Argyle is home to the Tuna Sport Fishing Museum in Wedgeport and a recreated historic Acadian village at West Pubnico.
