CPF (Canadian Parents for French)


CPF (Canadian Parents for French) is a national non-profit organization that provides support, information and resources for parents with children studying French.

CPF operates in three levels: it has a national level, provincial levels (referred to as Branches) and municipal/school district levels (referred to as Chapters).


When you join CPF, you join at the national level and become a member at all levels. To find out how to join CPF, please visit the CPF National membership page. Membership is only $25 per year and 80% of your membership fee comes directly to CPF North Vancouver for organizing local events and activities that directly benefit you and your kids!

What does the CPF North Vancouver chapter do?

  • We organize all kinds of fun and exciting events and activities – including parent workshops, film festivals, public speaking competitions and socio-cultural events – all in French!
  • We work in partnership with teachers, administrators and District staff to help create unique learning experiences both in and outside of the classroom
  • We are part of a network of more than 8,500 members in BC and the Yukon who are continually advocating for high quality French programs for students from Kindergarten to Grade 12
  • We have local, provincial and national websites as well as a quarterly newsletter full of resources and information such as highlights of the latest research on how to address reading and learning challenges, where to find summer French camps and how to support CPF’s advocacy for French language learning.
