Canadian Parents for French (CPF) is a national volunteer organization of adults who recognize the value of learning French and actively promote opportunities for young Canadians to learn and use French.
Canadian Parents for French – Manitoba (CPF-MB) provides French-second-language (FSL) learning information for parents, teachers and students seeking FSL related research data about programs in Manitoba and other areas of the country. It also provides and supports a variety of French language extracurricular activities for Manitoban youth.
CPF-Manitoba (CPF-MB) maintains a rich and varied assortment of information on their website and publishes a wealth of information in its newsletters, the CPF Manitoba NEWS.
CPF-MB acts as an advocate for FSL programs, such as French Immersion and Basic French, by providing information and practical support to parents who wish to establish new FSL programs in their communities, or make presentations to local school boards to influence changes in, or expansion of, existing programs.
CPF-MB has members in school divisions throughout Manitoba. It also has active volunteers who contribute many hours to support FSL programs by fund-raising, assisting with reading programs, organizing summer camps, visits and exchanges, and holding community events such as family fun nights for FSL students and parents.
