Canadian Parents for French (CPF) is a national, not-for-profit organization that is dedicated to the promotion and creation of French-second-language learning opportunities for young Canadians.
The goal of the North Vancouver chapter is to enhance your child’s educational experience by providing enriching extra-curricular activities, French resources for the classroom, student leadership opportunities as well as information and support for parents.
- We organize all kinds of fun events and activities – including film festivals, public speaking competitions, parent workshops, winter carnivals and performances by French-speaking artists
- We work in partnership with teachers, administrators and District staff to help create unique learning experiences both in and outside of the classroom
- We deliver information through a CPF presence at several District events focused on educating parents and students about FI programs in our schools.
- We recognize student success with awards and certificates at Concours d’art oratoire competitions and graduation events
- We coordinate applications for CPF BC & Yukon’s Sociocultural Grant program which supports bringing French-language events to schools
- We maintain an online presence to share resources and information via our website and social media accounts
