International Day of La Francophonie 2022


The International Day of La Francophonie is an opportunity to highlight the beauty of the Canadian Francophonie in all its richness and diversity as well as its traditions that continue to shape identities.

In partnership with Canadian Heritage, this event will feature a discussion with invited panellists who will discuss the artistic and cultural vitality of Francophone communities in Canada and the importance of art and culture as vehicles for inclusion.

Join us to celebrate the history, future, diversity and convening power of Francophone culture, and to learn more about its importance as an inclusionary approach.
