Clerbaud Bergier (fl. 1680–85) was an early figure in the economic development of Acadia.

Bergier, wanted to form a company to engage in fishing and trading in Acadia. In 1682 he was part of a group that started Le Compagnie de la Pêche Sédentaire ou Compagnie d'Acadie (The Company of Acadia). A settlement was also part of the plan and he chose Chedabouctou because of the favourable conditions at that location.
