The Canadian Teachers’ Federation (CTF) and the Association canadienne d’éducation de langue française (ACELF) launched the second edition of “Voir grand ensemble” at the ACELF Conference in Calgary, Alberta, September 28-30, 2017.

“This booklet is intended for the entire school community within the context of its cultural diversity, especially teens, parents of immigrant families and teachers in French-language schools”, says CTF President H. Mark Ramsankar.

“Francophone communities in provinces and territories where French is the language of the minority are increasingly hopeful that immigration will counter population decline. These newcomer families are now part of the Canadian Francophonie and we want to do everything we can to help them feel they belong,” adds the President.

The guide proposes 14 different stories and testimonies aiming to provoke discussions on cultural identities and diversity in the frame of awareness raising activities with students, teacher training programmes or even, school-based integration initiatives with newly arrived families.

Printed copies of the guide can be ordered through the CTF Publications Catalogue.
