The Ottawa Local Forum is continuing this year with a virtual format. It will be held over three days, from March 1st, to March 3rd, 2022. More than 300 Anglophone and Francophone students from the Ottawa region will participate in activities that will take place daily.

The activities will be completely in French. Students will have the chance to attend a performance by a French-speaking artist, listen to a guest-speaker and to participate in stimulating and interactive virtual workshops. These workshops will allow them, among other things, to discuss with professionals working in French in various fields. This will allow them to see the importance of being able to communicate in French outside their classroom.

These memorable days will demonstrate to students that French is not just a school subject, but is also a vibrant culture that offers an ocean of possibilities. This one of a kind week of activities is not to be missed. Register now and be there!

Originally from Quebec, Mathieu Gingras obtained his undergraduate degree in history/geography from l’Université de Moncton. Passionate about the richness of cultures in Canada, he did a master’s degree in public administration at the same university and became its director of student development and recruitment.


In 2016 the local police service hired the services of the magician Éric Leclerc to create an activity to raise awareness on l’intimidation for young people in high school. The proper approach is necessary to interest a high school audience. Éric Leclerc perfectly combines; testimonies of intimidation, magic tricks and humourous situations to communicate this important message: denouncing intimidation! Determination, self-confidence, perseverance and compassion towards others are all themes covered during the presentation. INTIMILLUSION, it’s a unique conference-performance on intimidation, craftily disguised as a magic show.
