In collaboration with Ontario’s French-Language school boards, Glendon Campus will organize the “French Language Olympics” (Olympiades Linguistiques) during which teams of high school students from across the province will participate in a series of activities, in French, in order to improve their language skills (oral and written). A final (regional) competition will be held at Glendon Campus during the Toronto Francophonie Forum in May 2017. The French-language Olympics programming will include French-language skills development, and address a variety of topics related to French-Canadian history and culture, diversity and inclusion, Indigenous people and youth.

Come rediscover the history of Toronto’s Francophone culture at University-College Glendon. The 4th edition of the ‘forum de la francophonie’ will honour the rich and surprising history of Toronto’s Francophones. It is an opportunity to shine a light on certain French-language establishments from around the city. The Honourable Marie-France Lalonde, Minister responsible for Francophone Affairs, as well as Ontario’s French Language Services Commissioner, Mr. François Boileau, will be present with us to celebrate the rich history, both past and present, of Toronto’s Francophonie.
