CPF-SK is fortunate in having a positive message to take to the broad and diverse Saskatchewan community: enhanced French-second-language education opportunities for all children.
Advocacy and the distribution of information allows CPF-SK and its members to raise and resolve problems, clarify issues, seek allies and exert pressure. To reach the people who matter, to establish issue competency, to build a profile in communities and most importantly, to get results.
From the beginning, Canadian parents have been a corner stone force for the development of French-second-language education opportunities. To our members, advocacy simply means applying structure and focus to what comes naturally.
Canadian Parents for French (CPF) held a national forum for French-second-langue (FSL) stakeholders on Wednesday, April 21st, 2004 in Ottawa. This forum provided an opportunity for national FSL stakeholders to review recommendations from a series of provincial and territorial FSL consultations.
