Caledonia Together (French: Caledonie Ensemble) is a New Caledonian political party established on 14 October 2008 as a split from Future Together led by Philippe Gomès. It is centrist and it is opposed to independence.

Future Together, a centrist party founded in 2004 split in 2008. This split started in the 2007 legislative election, when Gomès ran in New Caledonia's 1st constituency despite Didier Leroux being supposed to run. Though both ran, and both polled 14%, they got third and fourth leaving the RPCR candidate Gaël Yanno against the candidate of the nationalist FLNKS, which Yanno easily defeated. Martin was also defeated running the New Caledonia's 2nd constituency. Poor results in the 2008 local elections, including the capital, Nouméa, precipitated an open split between Gomès on one side and Martin-Leroux on the other. In 2008, Gomès and 12 Future Together Congressmen and women (including Thémereau) formed Caledonia Together.

In the 2009 provincial elections, the party placed second, ahead of Future Together but behind The Rally-UMP, and won 14.80% and 10 seats.
