The Association des commissaires d’écoles franco-canadiens is created in Saskatchewan

The Association is founded at a time when the threat to French-language education is at its highest.

Until then, French-Canadian school trustees had always worked with their Anglophone counterparts. However, following a contentious meeting of the Saskatchewan School Trustees’ Association, the French-Canadian trustees decided that there was nothing to gain by remaining in the Association and elected to start their own.

At the same time, the Collège catholique de Gravelbourg, also known as Collège Mathieu, was established in Gravelbourg for male Francophone students of all ages.
