Canadian Parents for French

French Immersion

Cleveland offers an Early French Immersion Program. From Kindergarten to grade 2, classes are taught entirely in French. In grades 3 to 7, French instruction drops from 80%, with the remaining 20% focused on formal English Language Arts.  

Canadian Parents for French (CPF)

Canadian Parents for French (CPF) is a national network of volunteers dedicated to the promotion of French-second-language learning opportunities for young Canadians.  CPF plays an active role in school districts, offering bursaries, resources, support, and cultural experiences in and out of the classroom. 

The CPF BC & Yukon chapter has more than 10,000 members advocating for access to quality French language education across the region and supports over 53,000 French Second Language students. CPF BC & Yukon supports all local chapters through governance, socio-cultural activities, networking, resources and advocacy. 



The local North Vancouver CPF chapter consists of parent representatives from the elementary and secondary French Immersion schools across North Vancouver. Across the North Shore, your Vancouver CPF Chapter brings in a number of events: Movie nights, French Film FestivalS, and Grade 12 Leaving Ceremonies to name a few.
