From March 6 to 22 2009, hundreds of activities will help celebrate French language and the wealth of the Canada’s Francophonie. Under the theme Celebrate Canada’s Francophonie Today - Rich in its Diversity!, this 11th annual event is an invitation to acknowledge the contribution of immigration to Canada’s Francophonie.
Jean-François Breau, as the spokesperson for this event, remarks: “I am delighted to participate in this event for a second year in a row. This year’s theme highlights that the differing origins and knowledge of immigrants is a source of wealth and synergy for Canada’s francophonie. For me, immigration contributes more ideas, more talent, more francophone fun, more savoir-faire, more brilliance... For the next few weeks, this grand celebration of the Francophonie will spread across the country with an original and consistently exciting program. It’s an invitation to Francophones and Francophiles of all origins - Let’s celebrate!”
