Who are we ?
The Alliances françaises’ main goal is to promote the French language and francophone cultures.
In Edmonton, we organize many events to highlight the cultural diversity of francophone communities across the globe, while offering social meetups to our members, all in French of course! Most of them are free and open to everyone: movie nights, Make Music Day, Bastille Day, the book club, the Holidays party…
We develop our French classes in a way that ensure a great learning for adults, kids, companies and federal agents. We are also currently forming partnerships with French schools in Edmonton to work hand in hand with French teachers.
The Alliance française of Edmonton (AFE) is a nonprofit organization which finance its activities thanks to subsidies, donations and memberships. You can become a member whether you are a student or not, check out the advantages that come with your membership!
