Learn more about The Laurier Project in the Fall issue of CPF Magazine!

The Laurier Project is an opportunity for students to explore key themes relating to the 175th birthday of Canada’s first official French-Canadian Prime Minister, Sir Wilfrid Laurier.

Titled The Father of Modern Canada, Laurier is known for bringing together French and English where others had failed, developing Western Canada through immigration, and believing firmly in Canada’s destiny as a great nation.
