From Monday, November 16 to Friday, November 20.
The Halifax Local Forum is reinventing itself this fall with a virtual forum, which will be held over a week from November 16 to 20, 2020. We are expecting more than 300 students in the 7th and 8th grades from across Nova Scotia. There will be one hour of activity per day during this week.
During this week of activity completely in French, students will be able to attend a virtual performance of a francophone artist, a guest speaker, in addition to participating in stimulating and interactive virtual workshops. These workshops will also allow them to discuss with professionals working in French in various fields, who will share the importance of being able to communicate in French.
The participants will have the option to register for some after school virtual activities as well, with students from other schools. Through these fun activities, participants will bond with young people from the other linguistic community and will be able to discover an overview of the Francophone and Acadian culture of Nova Scotia.
This memorable week will demonstrate to students that French is not just a school subject, but is also a vibrant culture that offers plenty of possibilities. This one-of-a-kind week is an event not to be missed. So, register now and be there!

Halifax Local Forum Coordinators
As an Anglophone coming from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Hughie began learning French at the age of 19, and has since been immersed in the Acadian Francophonie in Atlantic Canada. His anecdotes are inspired by the perspective of an Anglophone who works and lives in a Francophone environment and the resulting confusion due to language barriers. Coordinator of the CNFS at Université Sainte-Anne, he is also a frequent speaker for the cause of bilingualism and for the promotion of the French language in Canada.
