The purpose of the Semaine nationale de la Francophonie (SNF) and of the activities and initiatives surrounding the Journée internationale de la Francophonie, held on March 20, is to foster a thriving Francophone cultural identity and a sense of belonging to the Francophonie among preschoolers, students, teachers and principals in Canada’s French-language schools. The SNF is part of the Rendez-vous de la Francophonie.

The 2019 slogan for the SNF will be “Francophones… naturellement!” (Francophone… naturally!), a theme related to environmental issues.

Activities and contests organized by ACELF will be online as of January 2019.
