Lorne Davies Complex West Gym, Simon Fraser University, Burnaby


Do you teach French Second Language or French First Language at a secondary level? Bring all your class to the Local Forum and offer your students a succulent 7-course menu IN FRENCH hard to beat! It’s FREE!

For students, the Local Forum is a WHOLE DAY OF INTERACTIVE AND FUN ACTIVITIES IN FRENCH outside of school! During the day, they will have on the menu:

  • Inspiring conference
  • Games and networking
  • Information booths
  • Interactive workshops
  • Free lunch
  • Talent show
  • Cultural show

We expect 250+ students grade 9 to 12 and we guarantee them a unique life experience in French spiced with new friendships, a pinch of inspiring activities and sprinkled with surprises!

BONUS : This year we are organizing a talent show ‘Vancouver has talent’: we invite students to register and put together a 3 – 5 min presentation individually or in groups so we can get inspired by their skills and artistry!
