  • Journée de réflexion sur l'immigration francophone


Considering the spread of COVID-19 in Canada, the Fédération des communautés francophones et acadienne (FCFA) du Canada decided to cancel the conference.

Public health agencies, governments and Canadian civil society actors are engaged in a concerted effort to flatten the epidemic curve. The situation is changing rapidly and it is the duty of the FCFA to contribute to this effort and also be mindful of  the well-being of the nearly 200 participants, participants and panelists who were registered for the meeting.

Any participant having paid the registration fee will be refunded.
