Parlement jeunesse pancanadien

Known throughout the international Francophonie, Youth Parliaments are educational models in terms of their civic and political education of our young people. Thanks to mock parliamentary sessions, young people learn about governmental authorities by going through the process of drafting bills and participating in the resulting debates and adoption processes.

The Youth Parliament model for training and discussion has been successful. In addition to offering awareness, understanding, and demystification of the current political system, it also encourages youths to express their opinions and share their points of view with other people in French.

The next YPC will take place from 9 to 12 January 2014.

Jeux de la Francophonie canadienne

Since 1999, the Canadian Francophone Games have showcased the outstanding talent of young Francophone Canadians in art, sports, and leadership. Every three years, artists, athletes, and leaders take part in friendly competitions that encourage cultural pride and self-confidence.

The Canadian Francophone Games provide the perfect opportunity for Francophones and Francophiles to come together in one place. The Games enrich the entire country by encouraging discussion and creating connections between young people and Francophone communities from all over Canada. In 2008, over 1200 young people and their team attendants from the 13 provinces and territories met in Edmonton to take part in the Games.

Next Canadian Francophone Games will take place from 23 to 27 July 2014 in Gatineau.

Being the key event for youth of Acadia, the GRJ will gather between 300 and 400 Acadians and francophiles. They will come from Atlantic Provinces, Quebec, all around Canada, Maine and Louisiana, as well as France and Belgium to celebrate Acadia.

By offering a full range of activities, the GRJ wants to allow the exchange between young people from different backgrounds, to get them to think about their future and reinforce the importance of the french language in their mind.
