Our Future Building

Our building: a new and improved francophone centre

The Alliance Française Vancouver has recognised the significance of updating its outdated 52-year-old building in order to better serve its growing community. After exploring various options in 2015, itwas ultimately decided to demolish the old facility and construct a modern, improved building. The new building has been in the works for years and is set to open spring of 2024. It will serve as the central hub for francophones and francophiles in Vancouver, offering a range of unique and enriching educational and cultural experiences. This project will result in the largest francophone center in BC, cementing its position as a vital resource for the community.

What we want to achieve

An innovativeeco aware and community-friendly building, such is our vision for our new home for cross-cultural experiences in Vancouver.

  • professional theatre featuring an accessible 165-seat space suitable for music, dance, theatre and lectures
  • Art Gallery for professional exhibitions on Cambie Street
  • Artist studios of 2,691 sq.ft  for artists working in new media
  • Fully-equipped culinary demonstration kitchen
  • BC’s largest French Médiathèque/Library with an innovative digital media experience
  • 14 classrooms showcasing the latest technology in modern learning environments
  • Accessible and green building with three levels and underground parking
  • Public café/ restaurant with locally-made French food and beverages proposed
  • Rooftop terrace

Develop our academic excellence

We are planning to expand our pedagogical activities in the next few years and want to offer the best facility possible to our students. All our classrooms will be equipped with state-of-the-art technologies. We are dedicated to shape the future of French language teaching.

Offer a vivid cultural centre to our community  

We are committed to develop cultural activities accessible to all. As the Cambie neighbourhood is at the threshold of a new urban dynamic, the centre will host a restaurant, an art gallery, a brand new mediatheque and performance space in the Cambie area. We want to participate to the diversity and the quality of Vancouver's cultural offer.
