In Canada, Francophone communities have made tremendous contributions to our rich cultural heritage and our history. Held each year on March 20, International Day of La Francophonie is an opportunity to celebrate the French language and culture in all its diversity.

Organized in partnership with Canadian Heritage, this event celebrates the Francophone arts community and will highlight the importance of French and Francophone culture in Canada.

Participants will learn more about Canada's Francophonie and what motivates our guests to be involved in the French-language arts scene.
