Alliances Françaises in Canada offer a venue for Canadian artists to promote French speaking cultures. We organize exhibitions, events with authors, documentarists and artists. This provides local audiences the opportunity to experience French speaking cultures from across Canada.
To a larger extent, they also disseminate European, African and Caribbean French-speaking cultures. That’s why they often stand next to diplomatic representations, especially in partnership with the cultural service of the Embassy of France, thus harbouring a constructive dialogue between France and Canada
Diversity is one of the AF’s most important goals. They are distinguished by their promotion of multilingualism and their focus on encouraging stimulating exchanges between English-speaking and French-speaking cultures, opening the way for many local English-speaking artists.
