Francization is defined as the process allowing students who speak little or no French to develop oral and written language skills in French so that they can engage in a full range of interactions in their social and school lives.

Language is a tool that serves a wide range of purposes: communication, thought, learning, identity-building and the development of culture. It allows students to assert themselves as Francophones.

This represents an enormous challenge in a minority context, particularly since our clientele comes from highly diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds.

The tool “Le nouveau guide de francisation en Colombie-Britannique” (The New Guide to Francization in British Columbia) was developed in order to respond to the needs of our clientele.
