The AFL is a not-for-profit organization committed to protecting the rights of Francophone communities in Labrador. It is part of the Fédération des francophones de Terre-Neuve et du Labrador (FFTNL), the official representative of Francophonie in the province.
The AFL is directed by a voluntary board of directors elected each year at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) held in May.
The AFL depends on the participation of its members and volunteers. Without them, the AFL would not be able to work effectively or offer quality services to its members.
