British Columbia's Francophones and Francophiles

The Importance of Our Francophone Community

All across Canada, including British Columbia, you can find people who love to speak and live their lives the French way. British Columbia's francophone community is the fourth largest in Canada, with nearly 330,000 French-speaking people.

This community is diverse, organized, and constantly expanding. It has created a solid social and economic infrastructure that offers services and activities in French in response to the specific needs of this French-speaking population and region of Canada.

Our francophone community is a force to be reckoned with in our country, our province, and our municipalities: a guarantee of success on a national and international scale.

Le Relais Francophone organizes tours of key francophone organizations and locations in Greater Vancouver.
