  • other individuals (such as educators, researchers, program graduates, grandparents) who believe that young Canadians should have this opportunity

Our branch activities include….

  • liaison between members and education authorities and decision-makers
  • work on major projects in support of French-second-language learning, often with partner organizations (e.g., the Accent web site)
  • promotion of opportunities for students to enhance their French language skills

  • What is CPF?

    CPF was founded in 1977 by parents who wanted to ensure that children would have the opportunity to become bilingual in the Canadian school system. Originally a small group of concerned parents who met in Ottawa, CPF has evolved into a proactive national network with 10 Branch offices and some 150 Chapters in communities nationwide.
