Promoting Canada's official Language Education

Alliance Française takes seriously its role as Vancouver’s preeminent educational organization teaching one of the two official languages of Canada. Alliance Française encourages and creates fluent French speakers, enriching individuals, communities and the country as a whole. Children and adults, professionals, retirees and newcomers to Canada thrive in our classroom-based curriculum taught by inspiring native French-speaking instructors. And in our globalized world, fluency in French means a competitive edge for both companies and employees.

As part of our mandate, we are proud to offer educational programs to kids in French immersion and Francophone program in BC. In 2019, more than 200 students benefited from French workshops or cultural activities
