WHAT IS THE LAURIER PROJECT?
The Laurier Project is an opportunity for students to explore key themes relating to the 175th birthday of Canada’s first official French-Canadian Prime Minister, Sir Wilfrid Laurier. Titled The Father of Modern Canada, Laurier is known for bringing together French and English where others had failed, developing Western Canada through immigration, and believing firmly in Canada’s destiny as a great nation. Through various activities, contests, and awareness campaigns, The Laurier Project remembers Canada’s roots and recognizes their importance in the conception of contemporary Canada, the great nation we know today.
WHAT IS CPF?
Canadian Parents for French was founded in 1977 by parents who wanted to ensure that children would have the opportunity to become bilingual in the Canadian school system. Originally a small group of concerned parents who met in Ottawa, CPF has evolved into a proactive national network with 10 Branch offices and some 150 Chapters in communities across Canada.
