Memorial University


This year, the St. John’s Local Forum of French for the Future will be held on December 19, 2023, at the Memorial University, St. John’s Campus (NL). We are expecting around 300 students from grades 9 to 12 from various Anglophone and Francophone schools in the St. John’s area.

During this day fully dedicated to the French language, participants will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in both interactive and entertaining workshops. These sessions, designed to be educational while still fun, will allow students to forge connections with youths from different linguistic communities. Together, they will explore various aspects of Francophone and Acadian culture.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity! Register now for an unforgettable experience!
