University of Victoria

Victoria Local Forum 2017

On Wednesday, May 24, 150 French-speaking youth from Great Victoria gathered to the University of Victoria  (UVic) for a day of festivities centred on the pride of being Canadian and bilingual, a value being celebrated this year for the 150th anniversary of confederation.

Many activities and games were part of the program, in addition to workshops on 3 current challenges:

  • 1- Proud to act for the environment
  • 2- Proud of my freedom of expression
  • 3- Proud to be the leader of today

During these workshops, young people worked together to define how their bilingualism can be an asset when it comes to getting involved in these current issues. The francophone community  gathered to inform the students of opportunities in French (volunteering, sports and cultural activities, scholarships, post secondary studies, etc.).
