Bilingual Creative Arts Competition Launches!


Canadian Parents for French BC & Yukon is launching JEUNES ARTISTES!

It’s a new bilingual creative arts competition, which gives students the opportunity to demonstrate their bilingual language skills in an open, creative format. This project, built off of the success of the Concours d’art oratoire, is a great opportunity to engage students in an event focused on creativity and French/English bilingualism. Top 10 winners in Grades 10-12 will be invited to showcase and perform at the Provincial event in Vancouver in March 2016.

Where Are They Now? Où en sont-ils?


CPF BC-YK has joined up with CPF Alberta, Radio-Canada, Canadian Heritage, and the Office of the Commissioner of Official Languages to discover where bilingual grads find themselves, years after graduating from high school.


From Olympians to journalists, to corporate executives and teachers who are helping pass their love of language on to future bilingual Canadians, bilingual graduates from British Columbia, the Yukon, and Alberta have used their skills to do some amazing things!

If you, or someone you know, is a graduate of a French program such as French Immersion, Core French, or French as a First Language in BC, the Yukon, or Alberta, CPF BC-YK wants to hear from you! Please check out the project and fill out the form.

If you have any questions, comments, or simply don’t have the time to fill out the form but would still like to share your story, please email Jinnie Liu: Merci!

The purpose of this project is to reconnect with French language graduates, to digitally capture many of their personal stories, and to help inspire the current generation of French language learners.

Please help CPF BC-YK find graduates with compelling experiences!
