Those who benefit from a French-language education develop sustainable bilingualism and an openness to the world. French-language education also fosters each student’s identity-building and provides him or her with a sense of cultural belonging to the francophonie within Ontario, Canada and the world.
The diversity of the Francophone community in Ontario enhances the cultural environment of French-language education: its early years programs and licenced child care services; its publicly funded Catholic and public French-language schools, its French-language colleges of applied arts and technology, its bilingual universities. Considering the ever-growing diversity of Ontario’s population, French-language education provides programs and services to welcome and assist all parents who wish to enrol their children in a French-language school, as well as all students who sign up for postsecondary education or training programs offered in French.
