A history of CPF BC & Yukon, its volunteers and French education in BC & Yukon.
Seeing as CPF BC & Yukon will soon be celebrating our 40th anniversary (2017), and French Immersion recently celebrated its 50 years this year (1965, St-Lambert, QC), we wanted to catch up with some volunteers who have seen this organization, and the programs for which we advocate, grow despite obstacles and opposition.
Supported by the Office of the Commissioner of Official Languages, Canadian Parents for French BC & Yukon collaborated with CPF Alberta, Radio-Canada, and Canadian Heritage to set out to discover how and what what graduates from French programs of BC, Yukon, and Alberta, are doing today. We’ve heard stories from Olympians, journalists, business executives, teachers, and many others for whom bilingualism has enriched their lives! Below you will find profiles featuring a handful of the stories we have heard.
