Simon Fraser University 

Description

Under the theme “Living My Passion in French, A World of Opportunity!” 200 students from the Greater Vancouver Area will gather at Simon Fraser University on Friday, April 27.  

The goal of the 2018 Forum is to promote the activities and opportunities offered by French for the Future as well as to create links between high school students and their Francophone community. We also want to encourage exchanges between students from different schools and from different backgrounds. The workshop facilitators will be of diverse expertise – the arts, sports, entrepreneurship and technology will be at the forefront this year. Student-to-student exchanges, interactive workshops and inspiring conferences will certainly inspire students to pursue their studies in French at the postsecondary level.
