University of Regina
After our beautiful day of March 27th, 2015 in Saskatoon, it is a pleasure for us to welcome our local forum this year. We’re expecting an equivalent delightful day filled with euphoria and jubilation. This is the time for all eyes to turn to Regina, where we hope to welcome about 200 French and immersion students, from neighboring schools regions of the Saskatchewan capital. As everywhere across Canada, our local forum repeatedly aligns with the essential objectives of French for the Future. These are to merge students from Grade 10 to 12 of different school boards, to create synergy around a particular theme, precisely “the importance and value of linguistic duality in Canada”. The focus is commonly on cultural and professional opportunities for education in French; pursuing a career in both languages; language and cultural affiliations among the participating students and the celebration of bilingualism.
We want to make this day of March 23, 2016, which is a segment of the week dedicated to the celebration of the Francophonie, the torch of determinations to promote education in French and bilingualism in Saskatchewan. That is why we count already on the participation and support of everyone to make this event perfectly surprising.
