The Comité culturel des francophones hors Québec is created in St. Boniface, Manitoba

The purpose of the Comité, which would change its name to the Fédération culturelle canadienne-française, is to promote the artistic production and cultural expression of Canada’s Francophone and Acadian communities.

The Fédération culturelle canadienne-française comprises many provincial, territorial and national organizations involved in specific cultural sectors such as cultural development, music, visual arts, theatre, publishing and media arts.
