Saskatchewan declares 2012 as the Year of the Fransaskois

This celebration commemorates the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Assemblée communautaire fransaskoise.

The objective was to raise public visibility of the Fransaskois community among the English-speaking majority and among French-speaking communities across Canada. The organization also seeks to promote a sense of pride and belonging among the Fransaskois and among all Saskatchewanians who have Francophone heritage or a connection to the French language.
