What is the RVF?

The Rendez-vous de la Francophonie (RVF) is one of the cultural events organized annually to celebrate International Francophonie Day (March 20), which promotes the French language and the many ways it is expressed across Canada.

The 26th edition of the RVF is being held in 2024. The RVF is an initiative of the Dialogue Foundation, which was created in 2004 with a mission to engage, in a spirit of collaboration, in a sustainable dialogue with the Francophonie and with all of Canada’s diversity.

Throughout the month of March, Canada will be celebrating its Francophonie! Hundreds of activities are planned across the country, including multicultural gatherings, performances, film screenings, contests, and educational activities—it’s all cause to celebrate!
