On the road to Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017, our Government is committed to celebrating everything that makes this such a remarkable country – including our two official languages.
This is why we are proud to support Les Rendez-vous de la Francophonie 2014.
Under the theme “La joie de vivre d’hier à demain,” Les Rendez-vous invite us to open ourselves up to our Francophone culture in all its diversity, as well as to strengthen the bonds that unite all the country’s Francophones and Francophiles. This makes an outstanding contribution to the vitality of the French language and culture in Canada.
On behalf of Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Government of Canada, I would like to thank the Canadian Foundation for Cross-Cultural Dialogue for making this cross-Canada celebration possible.
