In spring 2004, at a major forum on the Canadian Francophonie held in Québec, the Government of Québec confirmed its return to the Canadian Francophonie.
Given this new orientation and the belief of the Government of Québec that the promotion of the French language throughout Canada and the continent is an essential element in Québec’s political, economic, social and cultural prosperity, a new policy was required. Both rooted in history and turned towards the future, the new Québec Policy on the Canadian Francophonie is thus, on the one hand, an indication that Québec intends to play a determining role within the Canadian Francophonie, and, on the other hand, a recognition of the fact that the Francophone and Acadian communities, primarily, as well as Francophone immigrants and Francophiles, are extremely important interlocutors and actors for the protection and promotion of the French fact in North America.
In the "Francophonie canadienne" section of the Secrétariat aux affaires intergouvernementales canadiennes website, you will find details in French on the implementation of the Policy and the financial aid provided under it, as well as information on Canada's Francophone and Acadian communities.
