Canadian Parents for French is a national volunteer organization of adults who recognize the value of learning French as a second language and actively promote opportunities for young Canadians to learn and use French. Each year, CPF New Brunswick sponsors the public speaking event “Concours d’art oratoire”, at the provincial level. At the provincial finals, prizes are awarded to students who excel.
CPF holds French immersion camps each summer for students to practice their French out of the school environment.
CPF provides information services for parents seeking research data about French immersion, information about programs in other areas of the province or country, information about camps and other enrichment activities and provincial and national newsletters with items of interest to parents and students.
