Canadian Parents for French – Manitoba (CPF-MB) will be launching its Rejuvenated French for Life project*on Saturday October 3rd, 2015.

Special guests include representatives from the Office of the Commissioner of Official Languages, Manitoba Education & Advanced Learning, the Progressive Conservative Party of Manitoba, Université de Saint-Boniface, and Canadian Parents for French-National.
Since the 2006 onset of the French for Lifeproject, enrolment in the French Immersion program in Manitoba, has increased by 29%! The launch of this rejuvenated project will provide insight into new materials and tools, which will be used to further promote French-second-language learning and enhance an appreciation of the benefits of official language bilingualism.
*This project is supported through the Manitoba French-Second-Language Revitalization Program, which is financed by the federal government’s Department of Canadian Heritage and the provincial government’s Department of Manitoba Education. Canadian Parents for French-Manitoba gratefully acknowledges this continued commitment to French Second Language learning in our province.
