What do a circus performer, Air Force pilot, and lawyer have in common?

All of them speak French as a second language and agree it is a HUGE reason for the success they’ve had throughout their lives and careers.

The simple fact is this: knowing more than one language opens doors to new and amazing opportunities! We live in an ever-changing, competitive world. We need every advantage we can get to find the jobs and careers we dream about.

Where Are They Now is an initiative created to highlight stories of French Second Language graduates across Canada. And every one of them agrees that learning French has enriched their lives in so many ways.

Go to the Where Are They Now website and discover incredible stories from regular people across Canada. We dare you to not be inspired!
