The city of Edmundston is roughly 95% francophone, the highest proportion in New Brunswick. Unlike the rest of the Maritimes, the majority of francophones in Edmundston aren't descended from the Acadians but rather from French-Canadians that came up from Lower Canada (modern day Quebec), and are commonly known as Brayons. The Brayons think of themselves as neither Acadian nor Quebecois and their accent (l'accent brayon) is fairly distinct from the Quebecois and Acadian accents.
