The Local Forum is a one-day event that brings together almost 200 high school students from across the province of Manitoba. The Local Forum is organized in collaboration with the Société franco-manitobaine (SFM) and the Université de Saint-Boniface.

Through its fun activities and interactive workshops, students taking part in the Local Forum will get the chance to share a French cultural and linguistic experience.

French for the Future and the SFM invite all DSFM schools and immersion programs from grades 9 to 12 to register for the event.

The Local Forum will be held on April 18, 2017 at the Université de Saint-Boniface
