British Columbia’s French-speaking communities join forces to preserve their language and culture

A congress held in Victoria leads to the creation of the Fédération des francophones de la Colombie-Britannique.

The Club Canadien-Français de la Colombie-Britannique, under the direction of Yvonne Fortin-Terrien, Cécile Goguillon, and Irene Goguillon (daughter of Cécile), launched the idea of creating a federation to bring together the province’s organized groups.
