About Us

Canadian Parents for French (CPF) is a nationwide, research-informed, volunteer organization that furthers bilingualism by promoting and creating opportunities to learn and use French for all those who call Canada home. CPF was founded in 1977 by parents who wanted to ensure that children would have the opportunity to become bilingual in the Canadian school system. CPF has evolved into a proactive national network with 10 Branches and some 150 Chapters in communities nationwide. CPF is a national network of volunteers which values French as an integral part of Canada and which is dedicated to the promotion and creation of French-second-language learning opportunities for young Canadians.

The FrenchStreet.ca® database is another milestone in the efforts made by Canadian Parents for French (CPF) to build awareness and understanding of Francophone culture through active participation in community activities all around us. It was developed and is maintained by Canadian Parents for French (Ontario).
