Abstract: Stemming from the field of Guidance and Counselling, this research brings a new understanding and furthers our knowledge on the topic of identity construction. It studies the problem of development and vitality encountered by the francophone communities living in a minority situation in Canada, and how it affects the identity construction of youths. A qualitative research performed through studies of life stories gave access to a more specific analysis of individual journeys and their relationship to acadian identity for twenty-two young francophones of northern New Brunswick during their geographical mobility for the pursuit of university studies. Results show that existential tensions are still present, that they vary between individuals and that they are more significant during the various critical life stages. This synergy of tensions creates a perpetual identity (re)construction that differs between individuals according to their own understanding of their milieu, their sense of belonging and their need for autonomy.
