"Ma Nouvelle-France" (meaning "My New France") is a theme song from the French-Canadian film Nouvelle-France, performed by Celine Dion. It was released as a promotional single on November 1, 2004, in Canada.[1]

"Ma Nouvelle-France" was written by Dion's longtime collaborator Luc Plamondon and produced by Christopher Neil ("Think Twice," "Where Does My Heart Beat Now"). Patrick Doyle composed the music.

The historic drama Nouvelle-France takes place in the middle of the 18th century, as France leaves Canada. The film was directed by Jean Beaudin and features Gérard Depardieu among others.

Contacted five months earlier by the producer Richard Goudreau,Dion's husband and manager René Angélil was impressed by the film. Then he gave his green light so that the singer could perform the song "Ma Nouvelle-France."[2]

Dion recorded this song on October 3, 2004, in Las Vegas. It was featured on the Nouvelle-France soundtrack (November 19, 2004) and Céline Dion's later album On ne change pas (October 3, 2005).

The music video, directed by Jean Beaudin, features dialogues from the film. It was included as a bonus on the On ne change pas DVD in 2005.

"Ma Nouvelle-France" peaked at number 7 in Quebec.
