Up until the middle of the 20th century, many New England towns and cities were often part of the tour circuit for Quebec entertainers (singers, comedians, etc.) and even into the 1970s you would occasionally see contest winners and even the odd contestant from New England pop up in Quebec magazines and TV shows.

You are likely correct. For some reason though the migration from Quebec to the north eastern U.S. slowed to a trickle after the 1930s, but the Acadian migration seems to have continued until the 60s.

I think it might be because Montreal industrialized quite a bit during this era so poor people in Quebec had somewhere closer to home to move to at that point. (Quite a few Acadians also moved to Montreal in the 50s and 60s.)

I think it only includes people from Quebec: source.

From the same website, an interesting read.
