The franchise was granted in 1969–70 as the Rosemont National. In 1971, they moved from Rosemont to Laval to become the Laval National, and later the Laval Voisins. In 1985, they became the Laval Titan, and in 1994, they became the Laval Titan Collège Français following a merger with the Verdun Collège Français, and then in 1998, they moved to Bathurst. The "Acadie" term in the team name refers to the city's surroundings, where the Acadian population is a majority.
The franchise has won five President's Cups, one of which (in 1999) came during the team's tenure in Bathurst. In the Memorial Cup that year, the team finished winless in the round-robin. The most famous player that has come through the organization would undoubtedly be Mario Lemieux, who was drafted in 1984 by the Pittsburgh Penguins of the National Hockey League (NHL). Lemieux played for the team during its tenure in Laval. Other famous franchise alumni include Mike Bossy, Gino Odjick, and Vincent Damphousse. Notable NHL alumni from Bathurst include Patrice Bergeron, François Beauchemin, Bruno Gervais, and Roberto Luongo.
On February 7, 2009, amid much speculation, the Titan franchise was given a 30-day relocation application extension by the QMJHL Board of Governors. With the club continuing to struggle with attendance and the recent struggles of the economy in the area, the team was rumored to be on the move if things did not turn around in the foreseeable future. The team's owner, Léo-Guy Morrissette, entertained offers from a group of local investors in the Bathrust area, as well as a group from St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador. Morrissette eventually decided to sell the team to his daughter Annie Morrissette-Hébert and his son Stephane Morrissette, who would each own 50 per cent of the club. The move also ensured the team would remain in Bathurst for the 2009–10 season.
At the end of the 2009–2010 season, Léo-Guy Morrissette bought back control of the team from his children at their request. Léo-Guy Morrissette kept ownership of the Titan throughout 2010 to April 2013. But after the Titan were eliminated in the first round of the QMJHL league playoffs by Blainville-Boisbriand Armada and with a few years of really low attendance records Morrissette started contemplating selling the team for relocation. A few local investors approached Morrissette about possibly purchasing the Titan to keep them in Bathurst. With low attendance and some health issues Morrissette decided to sell the Titan to local investors as well as a few former NHL Titan alumni. For days it remained silent on who the investors were but on April 11, 2013, CBC confirmed that Local investors which include Leopold Theriault, Darrel Stohart along with hometown NHL player Sean Couturier as well as former Titan Alumni and NHL stars Patrice Bergeron (Boston Bruins), Roberto Luongo (Vancouver Canucks), Bruno Gervais (Philadelphia Flyers), and Mathieu Perreault (Washington Capitals) will all be part of a new 28+ member group of investors led by local steel businessman Leopold Theriault who are buying the team from former owner/general manager Léo-Guy Morrissette. Morrissette has been looking to sell the Titan for a few years, according to this Yahoo report. The team is reportedly worth just over $3 million. Also Sylvain Couturier, has been re-appointed GM - he'd been GM from 2005–2011, when Morrissette took over the GM duties along as being owner. The sale ends the Morrissette era in the QMJHL. Morrissette, a long-time owner and representative of the league, moved the team to Bathurst in 1998 from Laval. The team won the QMJHL’s President’s Cup in 1999, their first season in Bathurst.
