Canadian Parents for French will celebrate it’s fortieth anniversary in 2017. CPF Nova Scotia held a gala celebrating the launch into their fortieth year at the Paul O’Regan Hall in the Halifax Central Library on October 7, 2016.  The event began with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding with Université Sainte-Anne. Allister Surette, Rector and Vice-Chancellor was on hand to sign for the university and Stephanie Carver, President of CPF Nova Scotia signed for the organization. CPF Nova Scotia has been partnering with Université Sainte-Anne for over thirty-five years to provide summer camps to Nova Scotian youth. The summer camp program is the tip of the iceberg, Sainte-Anne has also supported our Concours d’art oratoire, Salon d’exploration de carrières bilingues, and other projects by providing sponsorship and recruiting volunteers from its students, teachers and staff.
