Bilingual tour visits Isfeld

Canadian Parents for French BC & Yukon included Mark Isfeld Secondary School on its West Coast launch of a youth-led tour.

A pan-Canadian bilingual touring performance visited Mark R. Isfeld Secondary School last week. Over 200 students participated. 

Canadian Parents for French (CPF) BC & Yukon included Mark Isfeld Secondary School on its West Coast launch of a youth-led tour.

The bilingual touring performance, called O Canada!, will visit 30 B.C. schools and reach 12,000 students across Vancouver Island, Metro Vancouver, Central Interior, and northern B.C. over the next three months.

“In addition to promoting our two Official Languages, O Canada! aims to help young Canadians develop a deeper appreciation for the struggles, sacrifices, and hopes of all those who came before us by focusing on key nation-building moments such as: building of the Canadian Pacific Railway, women’s suffrage, and the Canadian lives lost in battle,” said Glyn Lewis, CPF executive director.

O Canada! has already generated national media buzz being featured on Radio-Canada and CBC’s hit The George Strombo Show.

O Canada! is a pan-Canadian project that will ultimately reach 46,000 students across four provinces and one territory. The project is financially supported by the Canadian Heritage Youth Take Charge program.

Canadian Parents for French is a national network of parent volunteers dedicated to promoting and supporting quality and accessible French second language opportunities for all young Canadians.
