The Alliance Française of Ottawa is a non-profit, apolitical and non-religious organization.

The board of directors is led by influential Canadians: CEOs, University teachers, prominent cultural and artistic figures.

Our multidimensional social, educational and cultural network is the strength and inspiration of the AF.

The Alliance Française of Ottawa maintains strong ties with cultural and educational local institutions, which contribute to regional culture. Our organization implements quality cooperation with cultural and educational services, city halls, and local cultural institutions.

How to support us:

The Alliance Française is a non-profit organization that gets most of its funding through organizing French courses, however, support from our community would greatly help us carry on planning cultural events.
