A group of parents forms an organization called Canadian Parents for French

This national network of volunteers seeks to encourage the learning of French as a second language.

The small group of volunteers was founded following the Parents’ Conference on French Language and Exchange Opportunities in Ottawa, organized by Commissioner of Official Languages Keith Spicer.

Since then, Canadian Parents for French has evolved into a national network that has organized many activities throughout Canada.

In 2016, Canadian Parents for French received the Commissioner’s Award of Excellence for its work in promoting learning of the French language among young Canadians.
