In 2021,Toronto’s Local Forum will be held online! It will take place throughout one day, on October 13th.

A full day for students from grades 9 to 12, dedicated to the Canadian Francophonie. Because learning French is useful but can also be fun!

Students will attend a conference given by Gabriel Osson, a Franco-Ontarian author born in Haiti, followed by virtual workshops on a variety of themes. Finally, they will attend an improvisation show by the DaFlo troupe and a closing ceremony.

Toronto’s Local Forum is a must-attend event that puts French culture in the spotlight. Space is limited, so we recommend that you register now!
