Épelle-Moi Canada (ÉMC) was created in 2016 through a collaboration with the English-language non-profit educational organization Spelling Bee of Canada, which has been in existence since 1987.
Indeed, Canada is a bilingual country. French and English are the official languages. However, our young people do not always have the chance to have other extracurricular experiences in French except those to which they are exposed at school.
Hence the need to set up an educational program that will allow them not only to master spelling in French, but also to develop certain social skills such as public communication, self-confidence, self-esteem , a sense of leadership and resilience.
Education is the key to success; it is a whole cultural heritage that Épelle-Moi Canada offers to young people.
Since its creation, ÉMC has continued to strengthen its presence in Ontario while providing opportunities for other Canadian and international provinces to participate in its activities.
The number of youth participating in the program’s activities is increasing each year.
