    Canadian Parents for French Fall 2019 Membership Drive

CPF (Canadian Parents for French) is a not-for-profit, parent-driven organization that provides resources and support to public school students and families who are part of French second language learning.


Each year, chapters across Canada create and promote French-second-language learning opportunities outside the classroom for students of all ages. The Saanich Chapter organizes activities that offer our youth a chance to use their French in “real life”, such as Summer Camps; writing competitions; bilingual entertainment events and cultural activities; as well as the Concours d’art oratoire (Canada’s largest French public speaking contest). Additionally, CPF provides research and advocacy for French programming on the district, provincial, and national levels.


All CPF members pay an annual membership fee, and 80% of this is returned directly to our local Chapter to support the work and activities we carry out on behalf of French second language learning in our community.

For any Bayside parents interested in supporting CPF, anyone joining or renewing their CPF Saanich membership in September or October will have their name entered into TWO  FREE prize draw to win some great gifts, either locally from the Saanich Chapter or via the BC & Yukon branch.  Visit CPF's Facebook page to learn more details. or  membership drive page.
