The Strategic Plan for French-Language Education in brief

What is the Strategic Plan for French-Language Education?

It is a vision for French-language education in minority settingsin Canada through four priority areas:

  • Early childhood
  • Teaching/Learning
  • Identity-building
  • Immigration

Why emphasize those four areas?

By collectively paying special attention to these four areas, it will be possible to define, update and promote the specific nature of French-language education in minority settings in Canada.

Why do we need a strategic education plan?

Following talks at the 2005 Summit on Education, and later at the 2012 Summit, major players in the field of French-language education in Canada decided to take action and establish a joint plan in order to contribute to the vitality and sustainability of the Francophone and Acadian communities.

Who are the players in this plan?

The major partners with an interest in French-language education are: community organizations including school boards, provincial and territorial Ministries of Education in Canada as well as some federal departments. These are the three stakeholders making up a committee that supports the implementation of the Strategic Plan for French-Language Education.

What are the advantages?

The plan aims to provide winning conditions for the overall success of students, their families, school staff and members of the community. This success results from a learning continuum and from social, cultural and community commitment. Those are the three targets that are the backdrop for the implementation of the Strategic Plan for French-Language.
