Immersion resources available

Canadian Parents for French B.C. and Yukon has launched a resource for families.

To mitigate the uncertainty of a prolonged labour dispute and school closures, many French immersion and core French parents are searching for opportunities to connect their children to extra-curricular activities, day camps, media, and resources en français.

To help connect these families to emerging activities and resources Canadian Parents for French B.C. and Yukon has launched a resource for families.

The goal is to help bring together opportunities for youth to engage with the French language and culture during potential school closures.

“Ten weeks is a long time for students to be away from a classroom,” said Glyn Lewis, executive director of Canadian Parents for French B.C. and Yukon.
