OUR PROJECT





LET'S OPEN A NEW CHAPTER TOGETHER





A THRILLING JOURNEY
DAMIEN HUBER, DIRECTOR


2019 is an important year for the Alliance Française. As you now, this year will mark the official beginning of our reconstruction project ! We also will celebrate our 115 years anniversary ! We are probably one of the oldest non-profit organization in town ! And yet, it's not easy to picture us as a non-profit. It's probably a good thing as we like to think that it has something to do with the high level of quality of our lessons and cultural program. But we must keep in mind that we are and will stay a non-profit organization with one goal : offer to our community a broad and opened experience of French ! This is exactly what we are doing for 115 years and what we are planning to do as long as possible ! And that's why we are planning to celebrate our anniversary with a strong look toward the future and with a special thanks to the community that helped us to achieve these 115 years of success and will acccompagny us in the next years : our students, our members, our boards members, our volunteers, our partners and, of course, our team ! As our history and our future are, must, and will be, above all, a thrilling human journey !


A FEW WORDS
MARIE-CLAIRE HOWARD AFV PRESIDENT


Alliance Française is now operating at full capacity and we are working hard to maintain the quality of teaching environment that our clients have come to expect. We need a larger facility to meet both our current needs and our anticipated future demand.  We also need to bring our building to code for the safety of our staff and clients with proper seismic construction, sprinklers and full universal access to all facilities. That's why we have decided to build a new building from scratch ! A big adventure for our 115 years old non-profit organisation ! A great adventure that comes with big challenges. We are committed to work with you all to offer the same academic excellence and high-qulity cultural program. That's why we are planning to strenghten our communication in the next years. Would you want to keep in touch with the latest news about the reconstruction project, this is the place ! The AF team and Board members are available to discuss and answer all your questions ! 


OPEN WITH US A NEW CHAPTER

Alliance Française Vancouver is seeking to build a modern French Cultural Centre, with more classrooms, a bigger resources center for our students and members, a real performance space, gallery space, and leased commercial space at street level. AF plans to replace the current 8,500 sf facility at 6161 Cambie with a larger, purpose-built educational and cultural facility of about 30,000 sf to accommodate growing community demand for its education and cultural programming activities.

The Society owns its own site and this location serves the immediate neighbourhood and broader City. Transit investment in the Cambie Corridor has improved transit access and reinforced the suitability of the location for the ongoing growth and success of our mission.
