LAUNCH OF FRANCOPHONE COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES IN THE CORNER BROOK/HUMBER VALLEY REGION

St. John's, October 22nd 2018: The Fédération des francophones de Terre-Neuve et du Labrador (FFTNL) is proud to announce the launch of francophone community activities in the Corner Brook/Humber Valley Region.

The FFTNL is implementing the first phase of support for emerging francophone communities in the province in order to develop and contribute actively to our provincial Francophonie. This first phase will consist of the implementation of community activity programming which will be unveiled during the upcoming year.

“It's with great enthusiasm that we support the development of this Francophone community that presently does not have access to a local community organization set in place to promote the social and cultural fulfillment in this region”, notes Madame Sophie Thibodeau, President of the FFTNL, before adding “In this respect we also hope to promote the emergence of a local movement, with good hope that it can then sustain itself in developing Francophonie in the second biggest urban centre in the province”

The FFTNL invites all those who wish to get involved/participate in activities to contact Madame Kenny Grady, agente de développement communautaire for the FFTNL, at franco.humber@fftnl.ca.The details of these activities will be regularly communicated via the Facebook Group Francophonie Humber Valley - Gros Morne (www.facebook.com/groups/FrancoHVGM/)
